After a successful launch, Athletech News, a dynamic B2B fitness business startup, is looking to build a team of freelance writers that will cover the fitness business industry including technology, finance, nutrition, wellness and other related fitness verticals. This opportunity is well suited for a writer looking to work on an investigative level building relationships with key industry figures, as well as produce product features/reviews and lists comparing products/services.

The Position:

The ideal candidate is a self-starter with a positive attitude who thrives under tight deadlines and has a demonstrated ability to quickly produce engaging, SEO-optimized, high-quality news content.

Athletech News strives to be the destination for all things related to the rapidly evolving fitness and wellness landscape. Examples of pertinent content would include: mergers & acquisitions of top gyms and fitness studios, new wellness apps related to meditation and sleep, the rise of connected fitness, the evolution of personal training (potentially related to AI and mobile interfaces), celebrity endorsements or investments in fitness companies, and fitness influencers as the new celebrity. Experience with self-editing and self-publishing news stories is a plus.

The Work:

  • Pitch (and sometimes be assigned), write and publish several trending news stories per day — with a focus on fitness, health and wellness
  • Turn around breaking fitness-related news stories quickly with strong attention to detail
  • Have an eye for spotting news that is highly relevant to our audience
  • Create content that will drive traffic via search, social, and referral

Responsibilities:
