We're Hiring and We Want You!

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 65 comments

So you think you have what it takes to work for Tom's Hardware?

Do you want to contribute but only until now have just been reading? Do you feel you have what it takes to interact with the demanding Tom's Hardware and Tom's Guide crowd? If so, then we may have the position for you!

What we're looking for is a community manager--someone who knows their way around the internet jungle. Someone who's bent on taking hot topics and is willing to not only spread the word, but absorb feedback from the community in an effort to make things better. If you think you have the finesse, the aptitude and the hardware and gadget tech knowledge to be a voice, you may be the one.

The ideal community manager must possess a cunning ability to build communities and gather people's attention. The person in question must also be able to withstand forum and social hurricanes that routinely pass through and walk out of the storm unscuffed.

If you think this description is talking about you, check out our job posting and apply today!

    Aside from this position, please hire someone who checks for grammar and spelling on all articles before they are published. And please, redesign the site - it's disgustingly cluttered the way it sits currently.

    School gets in the way unfortunately. Only thing listed I'd be good at is taking care of the Forums and taking what people say into consiederation to make the place better.

    I like to bring up discussions and comment on articles that are compelling enough for both the casual hardware/pc user to the silicon heads.

    The only thing is I’m in another country, is it possible to work from home or office? I’m 12 hours opposite the Eastern Standard time.... I can also help make this site even more user friendly.Would we get a free subscription to reuters or the AP?

    I could become a much needed proofreader for you guys, unlike Gin Fushicho.

    1. There really is a lot of clutter.
    2. A preview of upcoming articles would be nice. Maybe even a vote on a list of 5 most wanted articles.
    3. There's a lot of similar reviews and articles from other sites out there. Referencing those with Tom's Hardware results, if possible, would probably put Tom's Hardware above the rest.
    4. Knowing the demographics of Tom's Hardware readers and what they're looking for would probably help in determining what articles to write, and what news would interest readers.
    5. Statistics, statistics, statistics. Price variations for products on a weekly, monthly, and yearly tracking cycle from different distributors? Prices for a specific product went up during a certain time, or related products, or all products.

    I'm just commenting suggestions. Not really looking for the job. I'd be horrible at it. I can't speel.

    I wonder how much Best of Media is going to have to pay the community manager to deal with some of these trolls around here. It's one thing to voice an opinion and another matter entirely when direct insults are being used.

    What's wrong with hiring a Mac guy? Are you implying something? There's absolutely no articles concerning Apple products. For a pretty big share in the handheld market and even the computer industry, not even one article.

    Hire someone who builds PCs rather than rambling on about Mac news which nobody cares about :D

    have you been on holiday? there have been lots of apple news articles lately, and the community's been pretty much in open revolt over it, they even did a piece bitching about how we bitch about apple.

    as for normal articles, what is there to know about apple hardware?
    how the iTouch stacks up as a mobile gaming platform is a bit interesting, and they already did an article on that.

    Hire an English teacher to edit the articles.

    Also, give her 2 negative votes per comment for bringing the grammar hammer on us when she finishes with you guys. Also again, add a giant picture of a teacher slamming posts with said hammer instead of hiding it.

    I'm not applying but congrats on finding the funding for another position. Those full page in your face ads must have really paid off.
