|Job Title||Hardware Editor - Rock Paper Shotgun|
|Job Category||Editor,Games journalist|
|Job Description||Rock, Paper, Shotgun, the leading PC gaming website, is looking for a PC hardware expert to assist in expanding the website’s news, reviews and guides of products from monitors to graphics cards to VR headsets.
RPS is known for its entertaining articles, and accessible and conversational style. Our goal is to bring those same qualities to hardware coverage, and significantly expand the volume and utility of hardware articles on the site. We’re less interested in graphs measuring differences in milliseconds than in straight-to-the-point buyer’s advice for people who just want to play games - although the right candidate will need to be fully versed in hardware benchmarking and testing in order to inform their articles.
The successful applicant will drive hardware coverage on the site, monitoring the latest developments in PC technology and delivering timely and authoritative news, reviews and buyer’s guides in the established RPS style. They will work directly with the Editor-in-Chief to generate ideas for articles, and should be able to cut through marketing and jargon in order to write sparkling, expert prose to tight deadlines. Cultivating and maintaining relationships within the industry is a key part of the job, and a passion for games technology is essential.
