Role

Voodoo launched a new text-based mobile app, called Briefly, whose goal is to provide our audience with mass-market, snackable articles. We believe that a format deeper than a post, shorter than an article could passionate our US audience (200 words max).

We’re looking for great writers passionate by news (politics, international news, & entertainment-related news).

We're indeed launching a new format ASAP and we're looking for journalists who are able to provide simple articles, that aim at deciphering the news of the day for a mass-market audience.

Our golden rules (see image below):

  • Pedagogic: the piece should be understandable in 5 secs
  • Visual & structured: use of emojis, bullet-points or paragraphs
  • Shareable: people should want to talk about your pieces at a dinner with their friends
  • Straight-to-the-point: we only provide concrete info, not useless details

briefly

The ideal candidates will have a demonstrable passion for their category, an excellent ability to simplify complex topics and great copywriting skills. This role is on a part time basis.

The journalist should absolutely be based in the US and available to write 5 articles a day and make revisions if needed. We're looking for two different writers to cover all days of the week. This position is a remote job opening. Our communication will be on Slack and we’re based in Paris, France.

Rate

We’ll be paying 20$/post (around 150 words, max 200 words), 5 posts a day. Subjects will be provided.

Application

Kindly complete the application form below with a description of your relevant experience, a link to an article similar to the format we ask for, and your availabilities. Optional: write a 200-word piece meeting our guidelines about the following subject: "Turkey's offensive into Syria, explained". 

We’ll be happy to create this new big project with you! Looking forward to seeing your applications.
