Editorial: Esports Reporter

The Details

Mashable is seeking a passionate, talented reporter to broaden our coverage of esports. The ideal candidate is an expert in games like League of Legends, Dota 2, CS:GO and Street Fighter V. We’re looking for a reporter who can comfortably navigate those worlds, but also craft stories that illustrate the human drama of competitive gaming, making it accessible to a wider audience. We’re interested in covering the growing culture and business surrounding esports as much as the in-game action. Candidates who have covered sports but not esports specifically also would be considered as long as they have a passion and depth of knowledge about gaming.

This job is located either in Mashable’s New York headquarters, or our Los Angeles or San Francisco bureaus. It will require travel.

Must Haves

  • 2-3 years experience writing for an online news publication
  • An omnivorous appetite for competitive gaming
  • An ability to write on deadline and juggle multiple tasks, and multiple types of story styles
  • Ability to work collaboratively across teams, and communicate with peers and editors, some of whom are in other offices.
  • Understanding of esports’ major social platforms: Reddit, Twitch, Twitter
  • Interest in creating content that can be adapted to other social platforms
  • Video experience is a plus, whether you’ve appeared on camera or streamed your own games.
