Staff Writer, PC & Networking Team
Wirecutter is seeking a staff writer to join the personal computing (PC) & networking team. As a staff writer on the PC team, you’ll be responsible for reviewing a variety of tech products and keeping our guides up to date, from ultrawide monitors and SSDs to pro tablets and laptops. But Wirecutter isn’t about highlighting all of the latest tech news, and you won’t churn out short drafts every day. Instead, you’ll be responsible for researching and testing products to recommend things that strike the perfect balance of value and quality, often working on assignments that stretch and overlap for weeks or months. To be a writer here, you should also be excited to consider more than just a specs sheet or benchmarking test—a great Wirecutter review can value small but meaningful usability design choices, present sustainable and ethical concerns, and include diverse perspectives and needs. You’ll report to a senior editor and work on a distributed team with a handful of other technology writers and editors in the section who communicate and collaborate regularly on Zoom and Slack. But you’ll spend much of your time working independently on research, testing, writing, and responding to edits. A successful staff writer on the team will need to be comfortable taking initiative, good with time management, and quick to communicate. This role has the potential to be remote.
