GamersNexus is Looking for Contract Writers for the Holidays (Remote)

Product launches haven't slowed down this year, it seems. We are about to ramp into one of the busiest seasons of the year for the site, and that means we're in high demand to work on build guides, sales guides, and news posts throughout the fourth quarter.

GamersNexus is seeking writers to assist in meeting our content demand. This is not an employment position, but a paid contract position. Just to reiterate: This is paid writing work.

This means that GamersNexus will ask you to write a piece (or you approach us with an idea), we agree on budget for the piece, and it gets delivered within a defined timeframe. That content is then published under your name as a contract writer, and we move on to the next piece.

We are under high demand through December, but there is potential for continued editorial work into 2017.

Skill Requirements

  • Strong writing and self-editing ability. You should be able to produce coherent sentences, know what a sentence fragment is and how to avoid one, and know how to use punctuation. Your content will undergo editing by our staff prior to publication.

  • An established knowledge of products presently on the market. You do not need to know every product category's newest items, but knowledge in at least a few sectors is needed. For example, if you're a peripherals expert or a PSU expert, but lacking in knowledge regarding video cards, that's completely fine. Just let us know where you specialize and know the most. We want to assign content that is fun for you to write, so communicating those strong points is key.

  • No education background required. Professional training or experience in IT or PC hardware are bonuses, but also not required. Being a hardware enthusiast is required.

  • This is a remote position. You do not need to be located in the US, though that does make it easier.

  • Please understand that GamersNexus is a technical website and requires technical knowledge. We dig a little deeper than distilling press releases.

Types of content: Buyer's guides, PC build guides, weekly sales posts, and occasional news pieces.

Professional or extensive benchmarking experience is not required, but do let us know if you've got some. That's never a bad thing.

Applying for Work

Because we are looking for contract work, there are potentially multiple one-off article opportunities for multiple people, or longer lasting options for folks with more diverse component knowledge. To apply, please send us a sample of your writing and some brief information about your specializations in PC hardware.

You may email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Please include your name, a sample of writing, and any prior experience (CV/resume). Writing samples are the most important.

Compensation will be discussed via email. We will pay per content piece (fixed rates).

We are looking to fill this role by the 20th. Please reach out at your earliest convenience.

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
