We are hiring a writer to help us kickstart the Heroes of the Storm section. This is a paid position.


Hello,

We are pleased to announce that we have opened our first Heroes of the Storm position. We are looking for someone who will initially fill the role of guide-writer and who will work closely with us to design the structure of the Heroes of the Storm section of our website. The guide-writing will involve the first few hero guides, but also any other guides we end up deeming necessary. If this collaboration is successful, the person we choose would then transition into the role of editor for all of our Heroes of the Storm content, essentially working with other writers that we will recruit in the future to produce a full Heroes of the Storm guide coverage.


This is a paid position. For the initial, guide-writing phase, remuneration takes the form of shared revenue on the guides written. The editor position that we hope the person will transition into will be a salaried position. The two revenue streams will function simultaneously (shared revenue from guides written personally, and salary for editing the guides of other writers for publication). We normally include figures for estimated earnings from shared revenue, but unfortunately it is difficult to do this without knowing how popular Heroes of the Storm will be. To give you an idea though, our Hearthstone writers net over $2,000 every month.

Here are the requirements you should meet if you wish to apply for this job.

  1. You should have extensive experience playing Heroes of the Storm Alpha and/or Closed Beta. Your level of proficiency (i.e., how good you are at the game) should be high.
  2. You should have experience with at least one other MOBA game (DotA/DotA2, League of Legends, etc.).
  3. You should have a strong mastery of the English language, particularly in written form. Any prior writing experience is an important bonus.
  4. You should be at ease working with other people, so any people-management skills or history is a bonus.
  5. You should be fully committed to making Heroes of the Storm your main, full-time occupation for the foreseeable future. For this reason, and as we did with our Hearthstone and Diablo 3 writers, we will heavily favour someone who is already trying to make a living from the game (by streaming or playing competitively, for example).

To apply, send us an e-mail at contact@icy-veins.com. The final deadline for applications (at which time we will reply to applicants, begin setting up interviews, etc.) is precisely 15 days after the time and date of this post (so the 4th of March). We consider all of our communication with prospective applicants to be part of the overall application, which, naturally, includes all e-mail exchanges.

We are looking forward to reading your applications!

i cannot commit to a full time position as there is science that needs doing. However, I would be more than pleased to work along side whomever is selected for the full time spot. I am good with melee specialists, assassins, and ranged specialists.

As the guy that responded to a very similar posting to this for the Hearthstone position, I strongly recommend that anyone that thinks they fit the criteria sends in an application. Come join the team :)

I sent in an application via email but wanted to ensure that my interest in the position was clear. This job would be ideal, I love writing and am an avid gamer, the combination of the two would allow me to have a job that I cannot wait to wake up each morning to get started on work.

After 15 days of being unsure I reread the post and realized I applied about 4 hours late from my phone on my lunch break at work!!! Really hope I make it to the next step! Here's to hoping we get to write a guide as a sort of "audition"!!! Can't wait to hear from you guys/girls :)

Has anyone heard anything back yet? I still haven't received a reply and was curious if anyone else has or if they've already filled the position.

I am sure, that our administrators will let you know about their decisions once they could make the choice!

 

I'd like to ask for you patience meanwhile! :)

      If you are hoping to submit an application for a class guide writing position, make sure to do it soon - the deadline is nearly here!
      As some of you may have seen in this post, we opened up applications for class guide writer positions last month. We have now set a deadline for the application process, with it ending on Monday, March 19, 2018, at 23:59 CET. 
      If you are hoping to put in application, make sure you submit it by the deadline or your application will not be considered. If you have already submitted an application, we will be reviewing and responding to them after the deadline has passed.
      If you want to re-read the description, requirements and how to apply, we have listed them once again below:
      Good luck everyone!
