Role: Hardware Editor
Location: Bath, UK / Remote
Application deadline: 30 July 2020
Are you a fan of all things PC hardware? Do you have a passion for testing, tinkering, and pushing the latest tech to its limits? Can you craft Razer-sharp reviews, news, and features to deliver the best PC gaming hardware content to readers hungry to know the current who’s-who of GPUs? If you can answer ‘yes’ to all of the above, we might have just the opportunity for you.
PCGamesN is looking for an experienced editor to join our team as a full-time Hardware Editor. You’ll be someone who loves playing with shiny new PC gaming toys every day, as well as an exceptional writer who can channel your passion into creating exciting, engaging, and accurate content for the site.
You’ll also take the lead in driving PCGamesN’s hardware channel forward, developing and delivering a strategy that will keep our coverage of PC tech the very best around. You’ll naturally break some kit along the way – but that’s how to really test stuff, right?

Please note that this role is open to remote candidates. All applicants must be able to work UK hours (9:30am to 5:30pm GMT and BST), but are not required to be based in our offices.
