We help smart, talented, creative professionals make a meaningful impact in media, technology and the world around them. The Vox Media house of brands includes industry-leading media forces like SB Nation, Eater, The Verge, Vox, Curbed, Recode, Racked and Polygon, and reaches an audience of hundreds of millions, generating over a billion content views each month.
Vox Media's SB Nation is the fastest-growing online sports media brand and the largest network of more than 300 individual fan-centric sports communities, including SBNation.com, our national flagship property. Our network is powered by the most respected web-native sports journalists. One part of our network needs some new voices, and that's where you come in.
On the Forecheck, the SB Nation blog covering the Nashville Predators, is hiring writers. The writers will be responsible for writing posts about the Predators on agreed-upon topics and schedules. We have openings for multiple contributors, and are looking for specific skill sets for each.
Hockey analytics contributor:
Are you adept in applying advanced analytics to explain what's happening on the ice? This might be the role for you. We're looking for someone who can apply advanced analytics (either existing ones, or ones of their own creation) to their writing to enlighten readers about the Predators' performance.
Game recap contributor:
This one is pretty self-explanatory. We're looking for someone with a solid understanding of hockey and an ability to clearly and concisely explain what just happened to our readers. Recaps are posted shortly after each games end, so this role requires the ability to work quickly and accurately on tight deadlines.
The title isn't flashy, but we're looking for writers who can have fun in this role. Do you have a great sense of humor, and are you prepared to apply that to writing about the Preds? Then this may be the perfect fit for you.
Our best candidates will:
- Have a passion for the Predators and will already be familiar with On the Forecheck.
- Be able to produce and edit clean copy.
- Be comfortable working in a remote environment.
- Have a skill set, availability, and experience that lines up with the specific role you're applying to fill.
- Previous hockey or sportswriting experience in general is preferred.
These are remote contractor positions that are compensated with a monthly stipend. Some daytime availability is preferred. To apply, submit a resume detailing any relevant experience, a cover letter specifying which role(s) you're applying for and explaining why you're a great candidate for that opportunity, and a hockey-related writing sample that showcases your strengths for the specific role you'd like to fill. Your application will not be considered if you do not include these three items.
