The role: We are looking for an Editor for PokerNews to work from Nevada (or other legal US state).

This role follows a remote approach to working, allowing you to work from the comfort of your home or anywhere within the country of employment.

The site provides a range of daily news, reviews and strategies, and prides itself on comprehensive live coverage of poker events from all corners of the world.

Why we need you:

Reporting to the Executive Editor US, you will be responsible for creating relevant and engaging content that captivates millions of poker enthusiasts around the world. As Editor, you will contribute to the overall PokerNews end-to-end content production as a writer and live reporter.

You are up-to-date with both the general interests of the poker world, able to write thought-provoking content and have your finger on the pulse regarding all things poker.

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Writing news articles and produce evergreen content

  • Contribute to the overall growth of the PokerNews brand in the United States, including traveling to (US) events, such as the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, to work on-site
  • Contribute to Live Reporting where needed, in accordance with the line manager and Live Reporting Manager

Your live reporting expectations will concentrate mostly around the big (US) series, primarily the World Series of Poker, where you could be called upon to assist with live reporting services. Your overall work expectation should be roughly 80-85% editorial related, and 15-20% live reporting.

Who we’re looking for:

We’re looking for a talented and enthusiastic writer with a knack for poker. Knowing the poker niche in and out is considered a strong plus. You are proactive when it comes to chasing and writing up news stories and are self-managing. Excellent English writing skills (AP Style) are a necessity.
