Heavy, a leading news and information website, is looking to partner with hard-charging, entrepreneurial freelance contributors to help expand our NFL coverage.
We're launching an initiative aimed at having lightning-fast, comprehensive coverage of a select group of NFL teams, and looking for one freelance contributor to cover each team. We've launched coverage of the Patriots, Chiefs, Eagles, Redskins, Browns and Raiders, and will be adding coverage of more teams as the season approaches.
Candidates should be able to demonstrate the following:
- A passion for and deep understanding of the 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 scales with performance. Send cover letter, resume and three writing samples to Ben Doody at firstname.lastname@example.org with NFL contributor in the subject line. Note in your cover letter which team or teams you're most interested in covering.
