Thanks for checking out our job posting! Esportz Network is tackling esports news and entertainment in a fresh way. We’re striving to be unique in providing an opportunity that supports talented freelance journalists with a welcoming place to share content, get widely published, and get you paid fast. We’ve just launched our esports website and are looking for reporters to join us.

We do require that you have some published works or bylines. The registration page will ask you for examples of your work, LinkedIn, etc. Please complete as many fields as possible to make the hiring process smoother. Payment is on a per article basis and can be explained in detail via email or twitter (links in Hitmarker profile).

The Opportunity

Registering as a reporter on our platform takes only minutes through our easy sign-up form. Once you’ve finished signing up, and have been approved by an editor, your reporter account will become active.

All you need to get started is your completed reporter profile. From there, we’d love to accept your written, videographed, or photographed content for review and consideration to post on the website and compensate you. Whatever your talent calls for, we can accommodate it.

The submission process is very simple. Two options - submit your pitch and our editors will provide feedback, details (I.e. price, word count, deadline, etc.), and the green light to get started. Track all your pitches in one place and get real-time updates on your articles. We are trying to take the pain out of the pitching process.

The second option is that you can also submit a completed article for our review and consideration. Once we have built a working relationship, you will know the type of content we look for and pitching won’t even be necessary.

Once your content/article gets to us, our editors may make suggestions for final changes and return it to you with our payment offer. Upon completion of any requested changes and acceptance of our offer, we will upload your content and process your compensation through PayPal within one business day of your content being posted — that’s what sets us apart from other publishers. We hope you will agree that the fast, easy process and prompt payment for your work are huge benefits!

The Incentives

To get started, we want to take care of our initial Reporter applicants with some added one-time benefits. If you are among the first 25 Reporters to apply, get accepted, and submit three stories that are published, we will grant you a 25% bonus payment for each of your three posted stories and we'll send you a top of the line backpack with anti-theft and USB features — a great accessory for an on-the-scene reporter or for everyday use.

Future Plans

While we did just launch, we have big aspirations. We are currently accepting content on most esports titles and on a wide range of industry leaders, tournaments, and new games. If you have a great idea for an article or video interview, we want to hear it and help you get it on the site.

We have live statistics on our site currently dedicated to five games for now: League of Legends, Dota 2, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Overwatch, and Super Smash Bros. That’ll grow with time and we are looking for all sorts of content surrounding those titles, but we are happy to cover other games too!

We will also be hosting amateur tournaments in the above games through our website. This is another feature that you will be hearing more about in the coming weeks. We aim to host both free and paid sponsored tournaments to provide prizes to top players. Reporters covering these tournaments will receive free access.

There are more developments coming as we grow and we’ll do our best to keep you updated. We recognize that reporters are the heartbeat of our business, so please feel free to share your thoughts or ideas as well, we’re all ears. Links to our socials and email address are in our Hitmarker profile.
