Yes, that’s right: we’re hiring for The Verge. We’re on the lookout for great new international writers located in London.
We're also opening up the call to writers in Seoul, Tokyo, and Taipei City with Korean, Japanese, and Chinese language skills, respectively. Live somewhere else? No problem, talented writers skilled in those languages are welcome to apply, regardless of location.
Your job will include supplementing our global news coverage with local stories originating from your region. You'll be writing news, features, and reviews in English and have first access to all the best gadgets as they become available. You’ll be thrown into our cauldron and trained with the best team in the business, and you’ll be along for the ride when we launch in the fall. It’s a great time to come aboard, we promise. Click through for your chance to become our next international writer.
