Commentator

TSSZ has an open position for our commentator position. The ideal candidate has previous experience writing strong, smart editorials with a clear point and clearly relatable to Sonic, Sega, and video game culture. This person must be willing to continue at the rate of at least 1 editorial a month. Good news judgment is essential, as are outstanding skills in spelling, grammar, and composition. Working knowledge of WordPress and the ability to quickly develop ideas and a point of view in the event of developing news is necessary. Previous experience writing editorials is required–you must provide a writing sample with your inquiry. The commentator must be able to work independently, as a clear division between editorial and opinion is held on TSSZ.

Qualified candidates will have access to a supportive environment, including a staff that isn’t afraid to take risks.

General Assignment Reporter

TSSZ has an open position for a general assignment reporter.  We’re not your ordinary gaming site, and we don’t only relay press releases.  We believe in independent reporting, clarity, depth, fairness, and integrity.  We’re not afraid of the controversial, either.  For that reason, we are among the world’s top resources for Sonic and Sega news, reviews, and commentary.  We also go Beyond Blue, reporting on other relevant gaming news.

Candidates must be willing to research, gather, and report news independently, at the rate of 3 to 5 stories a week.  Candidates must exercise good news judgment, and must balance company relations and press opportunities with independent newsgathering that may not always be positive.  Candidates must demonstrate outstanding skills in spelling, grammar, and composition.  Candidates must have working knowledge of WordPress, and be able to respond quickly to developing news. Podcasting and on-the-scene spot coverage experience preferred.

Qualified candidates will have access to a supportive environment, including a staff that isn’t afraid to take risks.  Your work will be seen by a monthly reader base well into six figures.
