At Mega Visions, we’re always looking to add new talented members to our team, and if you’re interested in joining up with one of the few surviving physical video game magazines, you’ve come to the right place!
Who we’re looking for
We’re looking for people who are passionate and knowledgeable about video games and possess an ability to share that passion and knowledge in written form.
It’s not a requirement that you have a long portfolio of work, although that certainly helps, but we’re looking for people who are eager to learn and help us inform and entertain our readership.
Currently, our team is broken up in two groups: website writers and magazine writers. Unless there’s a special circumstance, all new writers will begin work on the website to ensure they can learn and adapt to our style of writing before beginning to write for the magazine. This timeframe is unique to each writer, but all new team members should expect to spend a minimum of six months on the website team before being assigned any articles for the magazine.
Our team members come from all across the world, so it’s not required that you reside in a certain region. However, all applicants must be at least 18 years of age, for legal purposes.
Here are the current open positions at Mega Visions:
- News writer (website)
- Translator (primarily Japanese to English)
How to apply
You’ll apply by emailing us a short bio about yourself, why you’d make a great addition to the MV team and any links to your previously published works to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject as “Application to join Mega Visions.”
If you don’t have any published articles, please write 400-500 words about your favorite video game and why it’s so important to you.
Do we pay?
Of course we do! Our pay scale is split up between our website and magazine teams, but each type of article (news, reviews, features, etc) has a flat rate we pay our writers. However, the website team has the potential to earn pay bonuses based on traffic to their articles.
The details of our pay scale will be discussed with each applicant once we’re prepared to offer them a position with Mega Visions.
