We are looking for a writer to curate tech news based on other web resources.
Writer needs to be plugged into the tech world. Ideally the writer is a principal architect, engineer, CTO, software engineer, data science, sysadmin or similar. We want someone who really likes the subject, already reads this content regularly and is well versed in tech speak.

Initially, we need one blog post per week. It will be more of a news aggregator to start - turning the links that we tweet into a news post. Here’s an example - [url removed, login to view]
Posts will get more advanced from there — with an opportunity to produce original content and write on a more frequent basis.
We’re looking for someone to begin immediately. The starting pay is $50 per 100- 300 word post.
Please tell us a little about yourself and why you'd be a good fit for the position. We'd also like to know which of these topics (see attachment) you find most interesting and why.
Please ONLY respond if you are interested in this project at the initial rate listed of $50 per article. If it's a good fit both ways, we want to develop an ongoing relationship with weekly post assignments with the potential to increase the rate.
Ideally we'd like someone who works in IT. Or is very knowledgeable on the subject matter, on TechCrunch, etc regularly and has experience writing about it. Someone who's excited to be paid to spend time doing what they already enjoy doing - learning, conversing and contributing to the field.
