Side Hustle: Join us and write for Neowin

Published on



We are looking for eager and enthusiastic people to join us; The most important qualities you should have are command of English and a passion for Microsoft and everything related to technology. If you read Neowin, then we would expect you to know what we cover; Mostly Microsoft news, but also technology-related topics about phones and new technologies that enrich the lives of our readers.

our requirements

We would be happy to hear from candidates with experience covering technology news, but previous experience is not necessary to apply. Enthusiasm, a positive attitude and a desire to improve and grow professionally all the time – Candidates with these qualities are just as important to us as those with years of reporting experience.

In fact, many of our reporters over the years have had no prior experience, but that hasn’t stopped them from doing a great job; Some very well-known faces in the tech journalism community made their name at Neowin with little or no experience at first. We offered them a strong foundation on which to build their careers.

Of course, even without reporting experience, We require candidates to be very knowledgeable about technology. Our coverage includes Microsoft, Apple, Google, Linux, games, software, devices, accessories and much more, along with analysis and insights into what’s happening in the tech industry.

We require the candidates Be proficient in English, and while this is a preference, it doesn’t mean that English has to be your first language. We will accept applications from anyone aged 18 or over, from anywhere in the world that accepts PayPal and Payoneer as a payment method, and we warmly invite people of all backgrounds to apply.

Neowin has a zero discrimination recruitment policy; Whatever your ethnicity, gender identity or sexuality, whether you prefer Linux over Windows, or Xbox over PlayStation, what’s most important to us is your passion for technology, your drive to get the job done and constantly improve, and your ability to report impartially and discuss what is happening in the world of technology.

  • Be active: We require no less than four articles per week, but the more, the better. We pay our writers per original article based on unique hits. It probably won’t replace your full-time job, but it’s a great way to earn some extra cash while gaining valuable experience reporting with one of the most established brands in tech news.
  • Be original: We expect all articles to be originally written, as we have strict guidelines for endorsements. We understand that no one is perfect, but we try to maintain high standards in order for a post to be approved on the main page.
  • Be awesome: You need to be able to bite your tongue when negative criticism occurs. This happens from time to time, but remember, you will be representing Neowin on and off the site.
  • be there: Although not required at all, living near a convention/technology center such as London, Las Vegas, Seattle, New York or Tokyo is a plus.

Although We are looking to strengthen timely coverage of everything related to Microsoft, we don’t assign or require people to only post in specific areas or even fixed times of the day unlike other news sites. This means our reporters can write about a variety of different topics whenever they want!

What will you get from us?

Our payouts are hit based reward. Low performing articles get paid less than viral articles. Just one article can earn $100+ if it reaches the threshold of unique hits, and we also pay monthly bonuses based on the number of hits as well as for the most successful article of the month. The fact is that our payouts are based on merit and the hits the articles get, so you get rewarded when you do well, but you get less for poorly performing items.
