The editorial team here at Tom’s Hardware is looking for a few good men and women who are passionate about technology, comfortable in front of an open test bed, and eager to write for an audience on a freelance, contractual basis.
More specifically, we’re looking to expand our coverage—beginning with the stories you’ve thought up that would make our community more comprehensive, more informative, and more interactive. Have you ever had an idea you wished we’d cover but never did? Now’s your chance to share that information with the rest of the world!
An ideal candidate is someone who already runs their own benchmarks, just so they know how their hardware performs. You don’t get any bonus points for doing it at three in the morning surrounded by Rockstars and pizza boxes, but at least you’re in good company, because we do, too. Be familiar enough with results that you’re able to analyze data and identify possible issues/work with vendors to get answers. Know enough about Microsoft Excel to create and format charts in a way that readers can easily interpret for themselves.
Equally important are creative writing talent and English proficiency. Technology can be painfully dry if you let it. We love covering the latest and greatest, though, and want to work with folks who share our passion for comparing processors to automotive engines and Macs to masonry bricks (just kidding, Tuan). Moreover, if you’ve ever complained in the comments section of a story about our inability to write proper English—you know who you are, and we still love you—then now’s your chance to show us a true master at work.
If you’re interested, please send an email to Chris Angelini at cangelini at bestofmedia dot com. Please include relevant technology background information, any links to published work, and a brief writing sample that covers what you’d hope to contribute to the site.
And as always, please feel free to send your feedback along at any time. Thanks for reading.
