Journalist / Writer, Briefly - Remote
2 days left
- Part Time
Voodoo launched a new text-based mobile app, called Briefly, whose goal is to provide our audience with mass-market, snackable articles. We believe that a format deeper than a post, shorter than an article could passionate our US audience (200 words max).
We’re looking for great writers passionate by news (politics, international news, & entertainment-related news).
We're indeed launching a new format ASAP and we're looking for journalists who are able to provide simple articles, that aim at deciphering the news of the day for a mass-market audience.
Our golden rules (see image below):
- Pedagogic: the piece should be understandable in 5 secs
- Visual & structured: use of emojis, bullet-points or paragraphs
- Shareable: people should want to talk about your pieces at a dinner with their friends
- Straight-to-the-point: we only provide concrete info, not useless details
The ideal candidates will have a demonstrable passion for their category, an excellent ability to simplify complex topics and great copywriting skills. This role is on a part time basis.
The journalist should absolutely be based in the US and available to write 5 articles a day and make revisions if needed. We're looking for two different writers to cover all days of the week. This position is a remote job opening. Our communication will be on Slack and we’re based in Paris, France.
We’ll be paying 20$/post (around 150 words, max 200 words), 5 posts a day. Subjects will be provided.
Kindly complete the application form below with a description of your relevant experience, a link to an article similar to the format we ask for, and your availabilities. Optional: write a 200-word piece meeting our guidelines about the following subject: "Turkey's offensive into Syria, explained".
We’ll be happy to create this new big project with you! Looking forward to seeing your applications.
