Hello folks

I'm excited to announce that we're looking for some help expanding Metabomb's coverage into a handful of established games. These are all paid opportunities.

Specifically, we're looking for freelancers who know League of Legends, Dota 2 or CS:GO to an expert level, and can produce high quality guides and/or news in order to support our expansion into these games.

Please read the following descriptions carefully before applying:

Guides

Games: CS GO / Dota 2 / LoL

We are looking for experienced guides writers to produce a series of guides for each of these games. We are commissioning around 20 guides for each title, and a clear brief will be provided for each assignment.

To be considered for these positions you must be:

  • - An expert in your chosen title with an extremely broad knowledge of all aspects of it.
  • - Capable of communicating your expertise and authority in a manner that's accessible to players of all levels of experience.
  • - Able to demonstrate experience of producing explainers, guides and how-to articles for your chosen title.

These are one-off assignments that would suit writers with a track record in producing high-quality gameplay guides for established outlets or community sites.

News

Games: CS GO / Dota 2 / LoL

We are also looking for news writers who can reliably produce two relevant, esports-focused news stories per week in a timely fashion and on an ongoing basis.

To be considered for these positions you must be:

  • - Deeply embedded in the professional competitive scene of your chosen game.
  • - An expert in your chosen game with experience of high-level play.
  • - Capable of writing news content to AP style and standards.
  • - Able to go beyond reporting and provide additional meta insight within the context of the news.

This is an ongoing assignment that would suit an entry-level writer looking to develop their profile on an established site and get paid for their work.

How to apply

Before applying, please make sure you have read and understood the requirements of each role.

If you'd like to be considered for any of these positions, please send an email to contact@metabomb.net and include the following information:

  • - An introduction explaining your qualifications for the position you are interested in - including the game and content type(s) you would like to cover.
  • - Links to related work that demonstrate your skill at covering the game in question. These should showcase your best work, and be relevant to the position(s) you're interested in.

If you can meet both of those requirements then we'd love to hear from you!

The deadline for applications is Friday 7th September 2018.
