Bit Cultures is a celebration of gaming culture as a whole and the impact its had on gamers from every walk of life. Unrestrained by any kind of boundaries, our staff is comprised of gamers who are ready to create content for our readers inspired by the effects video games have had on all of our lives. We cover everything from new to classic reviews, original features, video content, news stories, let’s plays, streams, podcasts, local events and so much more.
Our website launched on August 17th, 2015, and we already have a dedicated staff of talented writers and personalities on board but we are still looking for more talented candidates.
Why should you work for us?
The most encouraging part about being a staff member at Bit Cultures, as opposed to a more typical video game site is that you can basically write about whatever you wish. As long as it’s video game related. Here are just some examples to get you thinking:
- Reviews (of new and old games). We have a reviewing criteria that will be explained to you once you’re hired.
- Top 10s (weekly)
- Lists that are not in any specific order (“6 of the Worst Final Fantasy Spin-Offs”, “8 Characters I -Want as Smash Bros. DLC””, “10 Facts you didn’t know about the Super Mario Universe”)
- Editorials (“Why Doom Paved the Way for Future Shooters”)
- News stories. We would, however, ask that if you do plan on doing news articles, to be consistent with them.
We’re specifically looking for writers to mostly cover our Reviews and Features/Editorials. Once you’re hired as a member, you’ll only be required to post one article a week. You’re more than welcome to write more articles if you’re able to, but you’re only expected to cover one a week. We’re a brand new site but we’ve already established a PR relationship with gaming companies including Nintendo, Activision, Capcom, and more, so review copies are available on a weekly basis. You may still provide your own copies for games we might not get review copies for.
Are you interested in video content or podcasts as well?
Definitely. If you have an interest in (or are already dedicated to) creating YouTube videos, streaming online, participating in podcasts, or anything else related to multimedia, those are positions we’re looking to fill as well. Please let us know if multimedia content creator is more of your style, as opposed to written content.
Is this a paid position?
As of now this is strictly a volunteer position. However, we have a solid fanbase already and a well established system so our goal is to start paying our best and most productive writers as soon as we are able to.
What is required to apply?
You don’t need to be an experienced writer or journalist to apply but it couldn’t hurt. As long as you have a solid understanding of the English language and great writing abilities, you’re a good candidate. We also expect you to have a good understanding of the gaming industry and an overall excellent knowledge and passion of video games in general, past and present. You’re also required to have Facebook and Skype accounts for communication and discussion. You don’t need to have a resume to apply but if you do, it will certainly increase your chances of getting hired.
