We here at Android Police love writing original content, scoping out and delivering news, and developing useful site tools and features. We also pride ourselves in taking time with our articles and maintaining high content quality.
We love crafting and sculpting our articles so much that it doesn't leave enough time in the day to cover everything we want and some news goes unpublished, some apps unreviewed, and some Android fans end up missing out on the info they wanted.
Android Police aims to be a community site, maintained and contributed to not only by the site founders but also by you - the user, the reader, the fan, and perhaps the writer?
If you love technology and Android as much as we do, if you want to be heard, if you care and want to share (ugh, that rhymes, doesn't it?), don't hesitate to apply (see below for instructions).
What You Will Get
- per-post compensation, depending on your experience
- your own author account which may overtime evolve to a full admin
- a dofollow link back to your site
- an author profile under each post
- occasional product reviews, exposure to new and unreleased technology
- a plethora of community comments on the news and articles you report
- a pro blogging setup and instructions which will let you
- blog 1738x faster than if you were using a WordPress interface
- design and upload pictures without even opening a browser
- finish publishing your post by the time other bloggers load up their New Post page
- and, of course, you will become a part of our close community of writers and developers
Important: we are looking for regular writers dedicated to the site. This means we are not looking to manage one-time contributors at this time (sorry!).
Here are the positions available (you may end up filling more than one):
- news writer
- hardware review writer (phones, accessories, etc) - this position has to be combined with at least one other position, and you'd need to prove yourself first, before you can get your hands on review units
- software review writer (games, apps) - we also love roundups/series!
- feature/editorial writer
- forum lurker - this is an interesting position. A lot of important news originates from forums, so if you spend half of your day on xda or androidforums and love writing, we want to speak with you.
How To Apply
First, you need to be seriously prepared to dedicate your time to your site contributions. Being an AP team member is both involved and rewarding - just ask any active contributor here.
In order to apply, contact us and tell us a little bit about yourself, why you would be a good fit, and which position you would be best at.
Please include a few samples of your work, otherwise we have no way of gauging your level.
Again, the contact information is located here. Give us a buzz and good luck!
