Freelance Writers are needed to write topical listicles for Ranker.com (est. 2009), the leading crowdsourcing ranking website that allows users to list and vote on anything.
Ranker is recruiting freelance writers for the following editorial website categories:
ANIME: writers who are anime fanatics will contribute ranked lists about this cinematic art form. Writers will be expected to pitch timely anime topics as well as receive deadline-driven assignments.
CREEPY STUFF: writers will research, rank, and write compelling lists about creepy stuff, including urban legends, true crime, and the unexplained. Writers will pitch their own lists to the editors and/or receive assignments to create specific lists. This gig involves completing 5-20 lists weekly.
WEIRD HISTORY: Ranker.com is looking for freelance writers to contribute content in the form of “lists” for the site’s “Weird History” section. Writers will thoroughly research and compose interesting lists related to history, conspiracy, government, and military–all with a “weird” focus and slant to them.
NERDY STUFF: writers will compose ranked lists about “Nerdy Stuff”– comics, movies, video games, geeky TV shows, etc. Freelance writers will be in charge of pitching topics to produce researched, compelling list-style articles, as well as receiving assignments from editors.
MOVIES & FILM: Ranker needs knowledgeable writers to research and write 5-10 list-based articles weekly for the site’s movies and film section. Candidates must possess a deep understanding of how film works: screenwriting mechanics, story-building principles, the common terminology of filmmaking from story formulation to production, post-production, film marketing, and distribution.
WWE EXPERTS: writers will cover everything about the World Wrestling Entertainment, including WWE’s current TV episodes and WWE Network products.
Candidates will develop 5-10 articles weekly (or more), as well as work on assigned lists.
All positions allow writers to work remotely from home.
Payment: paid per article based on length and difficulty of research.
