This position will operate on a remote, freelance basis.
Valnet Inc. is looking for Android writers who are technology enthusiasts for the website HowToGeek.com. That said, you can write across any section of the site in which you have first-hand expertise!
How-To Geek is an online technology publication with tens of millions of readers each month. Our readers love How-To Geek because of its unique voice. We’re not a website for geeks—we are the geeks.
We’re the people you turn to when your computer isn’t working right, you need to do something technical, or you want to understand the latest gadgets—and which are the best ones to buy. We explain it all in simple, approachable terms. How-To Geek is for everyone.
Our target audience are everyday consumers who are interested in tech; we write for the lay-people, not industry insiders. For example, our readers are the "Should You Upgrade to a Wi-Fi 7 Router?" crowd. Not the "Wi-Fi 7 Routers Will Usher In the IoT Market Penetration Shift" crowd.
