Seeking NBA & NFL contributors
Heavy, a leading news and information website, is looking for hard-charging, entrepreneurial freelance contributors to write about the leading personalities involved in the NBA and NFL.
We're looking for lightning-fast content producers who are as plugged into athletes' social media accounts as they are to the action on the field and court. Successful sports contributors are as comfortable writing about eye-catching Instagram posts as they are writing real-time fantasy football and betting analysis.
Successful candidates should be able to demonstrate the following:
- A passion for and understanding of the national sports landscape, with an emphasis on the NBA and/or NFL
- Exceptional planning and organizational skills
- Ability and desire to react rapidly to on- and off-the-field breaking news
- Strong multi-tasking and communication skills
- Ability to quickly navigate social media — especially Twitter and Instagram — to spot breaking news and find additional information after a story breaks
- Ability to produce clean and polished copy
Work autonomously and remotely. Compensation is based on performance. Room to grow for exceptional performers. Send cover letter, resume and three writing samples to Managing Editor Ben Doody at firstname.lastname@example.org, with NBA contributor or NFL contributor in the subject line.
