Decider is seeking an enthusiastic full time Film Reporter to work out of our New York office. 

The ideal candidate will be an enthusiastic fan of film (with an expertise in streaming services), with strong reporting and writing skills. This position will be responsible for devising innovative, expedient ways to cover film, both new releases and those hitting streaming services or VOD. This can run the gamut from a quick write-up, to riffs on film stories that come at the topic in a fun or unique way.

He or she must be comfortable working in a deadline-oriented environment. Though pop culture news and screenings happen around the clock, this position is during weekday work hours, only (exact hours to be discussed).

The ideal candidate should have:

 

  • Two to three years of hands-on, deadline-driven online editorial experience, preferably for an entertainment publication or online.

     

    A strong knowledge of film — specifically, though not limited to, streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc. — and a passion for covering it.

     

    Good contacts throughout the industry, and access to screeners and screenings (though we will of course help in this arena).

     

    The ability to gather reputable news sources, and chase down leads.

     

    Familiarity with social media networks and Wordpress preferred.

     

 

Please submit a cover letter, resume and three writing samples that best represent your abilities to: azalben@decider.com
