Overpriced JPEGs is looking for emerging tech freelance writers who can regularly contribute to our growing newsletter (~150,000 subscribers). In lieu of submitting your resume to this job posting, please upload a sample piece of writing instead. Details below.
Overpriced Media is a thesis-driven media company focused on emerging technology and the creator economy backed by @BanklessHQ and founded by @carlypreilly.
Our mission is to make engaging content that covers emerging technologies – particularly web3.
We have one of the leading NFT podcasts and newsletters (~150,000 subscribers), and a recently launched… gin brand (podcasting goes great with a cocktail).
We are in the process of re-launching our newsletter and are looking for writers with a talent for saying a lot, in a little and know how to make a piece flow.
What You’ll Do
- Pitch interesting, timely ideas
- Research and write condensed, high-signal, low-noise articles on emerging technology topics like web3, NFTs, the metaverse, or AI: these can be breaking down news stories or deep diving into a new project or piece of infrastructure. The lens should always be: what do creators, business operators, & investors need to know about what’s happening this week/month in these topic areas?
- Collaborate with designers (and by that we mean Dall-E) to ensure that the newsletter is visually appealing and easy to read
- Work with team to formulate titles/subject lines
- Meet deadlines
- Proven writing experience, with a focus on emerging technology
- Strong research skills and ability to stay up-to-date on the latest developments
- Excellent written and verbal communication skills
- Strong attention to detail and ability to deliver high-quality work
- Knack for strong headlines is a plus
- Familiarity with SEO best practices a plus, because who doesn't love a good Google search ranking?
- Submit a 100-200 sample piece of writing that will knock our socks off!
- Remote work
- Exposure: we’re happy to link to your Twitter account, personal website, etc. We get ~55,000 opens per email.
- Competitive pay per article; opportunity to move to a more full-time role
If you are a passionate emerging technology please submit a relevant 100-200 sample piece!
