UPDATE (1/4/2013): All positions are currently available.
Blog Red Machine is looking for enthusiastic and talented writers to help cover the Reds Hot Stove season and beyond. Ideal candidates would possess a knowledge of the Reds in some capacity (as you will see listed below), the ability to make and support arguments, and a passion for the written word.
The FanSided Network is the fastest-growing independent sports network in the world and through our partnership with Sports Illustrated, we are only growing faster. If you’d like to reach a greater audience, what better way to reach them than by seeing your work on the pages of SI.com?
Here’s what BRM is looking for…
Prospect Coordinator – Requires knowledge of the entire Reds farm system and at least one full-length article per week.
Podcast Producer – We are looking to revive our podcast and the right person to direct the process. If you have experience in podcasting and have a knowledge of the Reds, then you are encouraged to contact us.
News Editor(s) – Take one day a week and report on any breaking news concerning the Reds. If there is no breaking news for that day, simply provide an article on a Reds subject.
Minor League Writers – Say you are a fan of one specific team within the Reds organization and you want to write about that team. Well, you can do that here at BRM! (A writer for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos has been added and is unavailable.)
Social Media Coordinator – Not much of a writer but still want to be a part of a great site and network? Look no more! BRM desires someone to operate our social media accounts (Twitter and Facebook) to interact with fans and readers. Also, look for other means to get our name out in socail circles as well.
At BRM and FanSided, we pride ourselves on our family-like atmosphere and our dedication to making sure our staff has the tools to succeed. We also promote from within whenever possible. If running a site on our network is something that intrigues you, joining us at BRM could be a path in that direction.
To be considered, please follow this link and fill out our application. One of our directors will be in touch with you to discuss your candidacy and answer any questions you may have. Please note that these positions are unpaid, but this is a great avenue to make a name for yourself and open some potential doors while writing for a great network with the backing of SI.
For the ambitious writer, this is an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed.
