The Xbox One X will be releasing this fall as the most powerful console on the market. ID@Xbox has had over 500 Xbox One releases. It’s an exciting time to be passionate about Xbox and Indie Games on Xbox. This is the first time we’ve posted looking for writers in over two years and that fact genuinely excites me. Both because our team has been together for as long as it has and that the future looks so bright and so busy. We need to expand our team to keep up with all the unique titles coming out each week.
At this time, we are looking to add 3-4 additional writers who can work on reviews, original news and features. You will need to be comfortable interviewing developers and asking questions and must be 18 or older, as we use real names for our writers. Beyond that requirement, we can teach the rest. And we will teach the rest. We know the idea exposure is traditionally overblown, however, we will work with you to improve as a writer and offer you a chance to work with an incredibly passionate team. The position is entirely voluntary but provides you with a great resume builder and has lead to paid roles in the past. Even if you are just looking for a fun creative outlet, make sure to reach out to us if you think this could be a fit. Feel free to talk to our team about what it’s like working at XBLA Fans; we think they’ll give it a pretty great recommendation. For these general writing positions, you can live anywhere in the world, all you need is writing ability and an Xbox One.
If you have prior experience, there is potential to discuss an editor position on the site where you would work closely with me to develop the site’s voice and help our team produce the best possible content we can.
If the position interests you, please send an email with a resume and writing sample (please send something similar to what you would read on our website) to John@XBLAFans.com. If you have any questions feel free to post them in the comments or include them with your application email. Please use the heading: “XBLA Fans Staff Application.”
