If this sounds like you, then, this is totally your gig!

As with any concept, we are looking for those that can masterfully take the topic, even very technical concepts, and write them in everyday language into these very short stories that the average Joe really connects to, understands, enjoys reading and feels like they really learned something of value when they are through.

Our ideal candidates are those that draw people in with the article title, past the first sub-heading, finds fantastic supporting pictures, and then on through to the story – a story that is compelling, that connects to their heart and soul, that takes these great topics and gets the reader to say – “Yeah, wow, I totally get that! Hey, [Friend’s Name] – you gotta read this!” …and this is how we measure success here – time on the page, number of shares, how many backlinks the articles have, what percent follow the call-to-action from the article (if there is one), and how far it is syndicated through partner channels, social media, and even through the traditional press.

And just so you know (if you didn’t figure it out yet), the businesses that we develop here at IceFrog keep getting higher and higher on the scale of doing good – things that you can be passionate about – so, if what drives your heart is what drives your pen (or keyboard), then please contact us to learn more!

We are looking for both full-time and contract-per-article positions. Whatever you are interested in, please write us! (hint… hint… so we can see how you write) ..and be sure to send us links to your portfolio and prior works, what type of working arrangement you prefer, and what your salary requirements are.
