Def Pen is looking to add passionate, driven, motivated team players who want to contribute and help build a brand. The Def Pen brand has grown tremendously over the years but its time to add more people to our team.
We’re looking to add some contributors to our team. From sneakers to movies to sports, music, fashion, video games and everything in between, Def Pen makes an effort to try and cover the best and latest in many avenues. Now it’s time to add more people looking to get their start in the digital media world. We’re planning on growing and we want to bring you with us.
Def Pen content has been featured on some of the world’s most credible media outlets including the Huffington Post, Sports Illustrated, SB Nation, Bleacher Report, CBS, Yahoo, Fox, NBC, NBA TV, The Score, Sporting News and the list goes on.
We’re not promising lavish things but instead we want to present everyone with an opportunity that many other places wouldn’t give to the average person looking to make a name for themselves. We’re looking to grow our brand and we need the right people on board to do that.
While having a degree in your field and prior experience is excellent, it is not required to apply and join our squad. When it comes to Def Pen, it’s simple. We want to bring on people who want to consistently work hard, bring new ideas and work towards the end goal of helping the site grow as a whole. Def Pen is a team, we’re not looking out for the benefits of one single person.
As an independent media outlet, we’re free of any censorship from corporate suits or executives. The only thing we ask is you work closely with your section leader and work together to produce new ideas for content. Also, if there’s something here you see a friend might be interested in, by all means, share the link and help them out. We’re always looking to expand our team.
Below are some of the positions we’re looking to fill. If you feel like you’d work well with one of these sections, please contact the person associated with that team.
