We’re looking to expand our team here at AndroidGuys as well as our partner sites, ChromeWatching and SmarterWatching. We would like to pick up a handful of writers and interns for each our our brands; there are plenty of opportunities to be found!

Interns will typically work within our system for a few weeks, getting the feel of things, and learning whether this is something they want to do. Our culture allows for writers who have jobs, school, and other obligations. We’d like to see an average of 5-10 posts per week out of interns on a consistent basis before expanding roles.

More seasoned writers and those who can produce in excess of 10 posts per week may be able to join the paid ranks in a much quicker time frame. Depending on previous experience and abilities we may offer something immediately.
