Are you a writer with a strong interest in cryptocurrency, the metaverse, electric vehicles, and other future tech topics? Can you explain the NFT market to our readers and walk them through DeFi? We’re looking for someone just like you to write for us here at How-To Geek.

What We’re Looking For

How-To Geek is looking for an experienced writer to explain future technology topics to our readers, from cryptocurrency, blockchain, NFTs, DeFi, and Web3 to the metaverse, VR, and AR. Everything involving future technology is interesting to us, including EVs (Tesla and beyond.)

We’re looking for explainers, editorials, how-tos, and more to help our audience understand these bleeding-edge technologies.

We are not looking for a writer to just write news articles. You may occasionally write something news-related, perhaps an editorial or explainer about a news story, but we generally want content that’s “evergreen,” not standard news articles.

The ideal candidate has solid experience writing and a lot of knowledge about all of these tech topics. If you meet some of the requirements—for example, if you have a lot of knowledge in all these topics areas but no professional writing experience yet, or if you’re a crypto expert without EV knowledge—please apply anyway.

This is a freelance position where you will be assigned some topics to write about, but we also encourage you to pitch your own article topics.

Pay is dependent on experience, but it will not be less than $100 per article.

Here’s what we always look for in new writers:

You must be a geek at heart, always looking to learn more about technology and make your gadgets work better.
You must be able to explain complex topics in a way that is clear and easy to understand, even to non-experts.
You must be creative and have the ability to generate article ideas, take suggestions, and make topics interesting and exciting.
You must be at least 18 years old and have your own computer.
You must have solid English writing skills. It’s a shame we even have to mention that one.
You should have some basic screenshot and image editing chops. HTML skills are a plus.

We don’t have normal office hours—or even an office—so you can be located anywhere. This is strictly a telecommuting gig.

Think you have what it takes? Please apply!

How to Apply

When you apply, please give us an idea of your background and your previous writing experience.

Most Importantly: We want a writing sample. If you have previous writing to showcase, particularly relevant future tech-related pieces that you’re proud of, include a link to it in your email. If you have a personal blog, a forum account, or a commenter account from anywhere, feel free to include that as well.

To apply, head over to our job posting on Indeed. We look forward to hearing from you!
