We’re hiring! Pocket Tactics is looking for two staff writers

Join our mobile games editorial team

Pokemon Go

Are you passionate about the world of mobile games? Are you dying to tell the stories of game developers who have spent months tailoring their game for the Apple Arcade? Do you want to help usher in a new age for the mobile gaming industry’s biggest website? If the answer to all the above questions is a resounding ‘Yes’ then we want to hear from you.

Network N is on the hunt for two new staff writers with a strong understanding of the mobile games and Nintendo Switch market for Pocket Tactics, the number one place to go for guide content on the biggest and best games.

The staff writer positions are entry level, so since you’ll be largely responsible for tackling news, reviews, and guides, you’ll need to have some published work (even if it’s on your own blog) to show off. You’ll get bonus points if the samples you send us are about mobile or Switch games.

If this sounds right up your street, you can see the full criteria for the roles below:
