Editorial: Games Reporter

The Details

Mashable is seeking a passionate, talented reporter to broaden our coverage of gaming and esports. The ideal candidate is an expert in a variety of games like GTA, Zelda, League of Legends, Street Fighter, Dota 2, Pokémon and wherever else their own personal obsessions may lie.

We’re looking for a reporter who can comfortably navigate those worlds and communities, speaking both to the games themselves as well as the players who play them. We’re interested in covering the growing culture surrounding gaming and esports as much as the in-game action. 

This position is located in our LA office.

  • An omnivorous appetite for gaming and esports
  • An ability to write on deadline and juggle multiple tasks, and multiple types of story styles
  • Ability to work collaboratively across teams, and communicate with peers and editors, some of whom are in other offices
  • Understanding of gaming and esports’ major social platforms: Reddit, Twitch, Twitter, YouTube
  • Interest in creating content that can be adapted to other social platforms
  • Video experience is a plus, whether you’ve appeared on camera or streamed your own games
