Lifewire, one of the largest tech sites on the web, is looking for a few experienced freelance technology writers who share our passion for creating content that leaves readers feeling educated, empowered, and understood. Specifically, we’re looking for writers that consider themselves experts, and expert communicators, in the areas of VPN and web hosting. Our goal is to demystify these services for normal people: to help them understand the important concepts in these areas, which services are best, and how to get them setup and running.
Our freelancer contracts can last for up to one year and may be renewed. We offer very competitive rates for our project work.
Technology is super important to our readers because of how it makes their lives better, not because they obsess over the technology itself. Our writers take pride in understanding this audience and knowing how to speak to them.

- Capable of performing advanced benchmarking, performance, stability, and related testing in these areas
- Demonstrable experience translating testing results into readable, information-rich visual comparisons
- Expert-level knowledge of networking technology, specifically as it relates to internet architecture
- Very high comfort level and demonstrable experience writing straightforward, practical, and instructional-style advice on technology to a lay audience
