Unwired View is hiring. We are looking for a number of a talented writers to join UV team and expand our coverage.

European editor. Based in or near London and ready to attend all the events there at a moment’s notice. Doing news and reviews in the meantime. If you can do a good op-ed – even better. Based in or near Amsterdam is also a possibility, but we really prefer London.
Asian editor. Preferably based in Taipei. To follow Chinese business press, tech/mobile sites and forums in native language, find and report news that are interesting to UV audience, before we here in Europe and U.S. even wake up.
Weekend editor. To make sure news flow on UV does not stop on weekends. You can contribute on weekdays, must post on weekends and holidays.
Op-ed/feature contributors. With great understanding and strong opinions about things happening in mobile for opinion pieces. Mobile gadget enthusiasts wringing the last ounce of performance from their latest jailbroken device with customs ROMs, overclocked CPUs, hacks and non-traditional apps – to write Feature articles and “How-to” guides. And more- if you have an idea for a feature or op-ed that you think is good fit for UV – be sure to drop us a note.
News-hound. A person to scour the net for latest mobile news. Looking in all traditional and non traditional places like FCC, various patent and trademark databases, certification sites, popular forums, following twitter streams, regularly checking global and local vendor sites in multiple languages, etc; digging out news gems buried in a flood of info on the web, before anyone else notices. Since you won’t be writing for us, just sending links, only basic English writing skills necessary. But we are pretty good at finding news ourselves, so you’ll have to impress with an application, for us to take notice.

- a little bit about yourself – who you are, where you live, why you want and think you can write for us.
- position you are applying for
- no. of hours (per day/week) you are ready/can spend writing for UV,and times of day when you will be able to write
- any questions you have about the position
- for news editors: write and submit 3 posts that you think will be a good fit to be published on UV, on important/interesting news bits on the day of submission. The pics are not necessary – we are interested in your writing skills.
- for op-ed/feature contributors: links to your published op-eds/features on the net, or 1 op-ed/feature article that you think is good enough to publish on UV
- for news-hound: Description of how you plan to do news gathering, with a sampling of sources (with links) you will be watching (10-30 or more you think are important). Links to 15 interesting news items at the moment of application

PS. Unless you worked/work for a well established mobile tech website and have a bunch of articles with your byline, please check carefully the things we ask you to submit with the application, and submit all of them as we ask.
If you are too lazy, or inattentive, or just too full of yourself , or don’t don’t care enough to read and follow job application instructions, we will be too lazy, inattentive, too full of ourselves too, won’t care about your application and will send it directly to our trash box.
