Join Our Team

Are you passionate about gaming, nerd culture, or professional wrestling? If you’re an aspiring writer and want to share your passion for any (or all) of those things, 9to5Gamers might be a great home for you!

We started 9to5Gamers with a simple goal in mind: to create a community where gaming and nerd culture come together and are celebrated.

We believe that journalism has a large role to play in that community. It is our job to start the conversation that fuels passion around those things.

As a writer or content creator for 9to5Gamers, you will get to play an integral role in the formation of this community. You will be able to help shape what it is about. In addition, you’ll gain a lot of quality experience in a field that demands it. Writers for us have gone on to careers with Game Informer, Rock Paper Shotgun, and WhatCulture, among others.

The free games for reviews you write aren’t bad, either. Our entry-level positions are currently unpaid, but we will be rolling out compensated Senior Writer positions later in the year that existing staff writers can apply for and promote into. As we grow, it is a great time to get in now!
