About Your Role

If the most exciting part of buying a new gadget for you is the initial Amazon shopping trip where you compare specs, features, and prices, then you may be a reviewer at heart.We’re looking for both experts and enthusiasts in consumer technology who love unboxing and setting up new products regardless of if it’s a gaming router, a pair of noise-canceling headphones, or even a paper shredder. If you have writing skills, a photographer’s eye, and the ability to analyze and objectively weigh the pros and cons of different products, we’d love to hear from you.

About Your Contributions

Writing 1,000-2,500 word reviews of consumer technology products with clarity and expertise
Parsing technical information, specs, and jargon into terms readers can easily understand
Setting up multiple devices at a time and following methodical testing procedures
Objectively comparing products by weighing pros and cons, taking into account the design, performance, pricing, and other relevant factors
Shooting crisp, well-lit photos of review products in clean settings
Turning in review copy and photos by a mutually determined time
About You

Experience working as a remote freelancer with relevant clips
Experience writing for a web-based publication (consumer technology publications a strong plus)
Willingness to follow detailed guidelines, accept edits, and reshoot images
Familiarity taking photos with a DSLR and some photo editing (portfolio or published images a strong plus)
As a freelance writer, you’ll be writing for Lifewire whose audience is not that of a tech enthusiast. Our audience is people searching for help to decide what to buy. We don’t talk down to our readers, engage in fan wars, or bury our writing in jargon and technical terms. We cover the full gamut of consumer technology, but no matter how complex and specialized, we always try to put things into terms the average consumer can understand. Our reviews cover, but aren’t limited to: mobile phones, tablets, networking, speakers, cameras, smart home devices, e-readers, printers, scanners, pet cameras, and many more.

We are looking for reviewers who are able to take on 3-4 products at a time, with word counts ranging from 1,000-2,500 words per review. We offer very competitive rates per article.
