We’re looking for a pro Music Reviewer that can author multiple music articles weekly for Dance Music Northwest.

You’d also work closely with our Marketing Team on #SongOfTheDay and our upcoming relaunch of Elevation Radio.

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • An inexhaustible hunger for crawling the internet and social media in search of the best music and new artists

  • Intimate knowledge of the dance music scene and its subgenres
  • Outstanding written and oral communication skills
  • The ability to adhere to standard guidelines while still injecting unique personality
  • Familiarity with the Northwest dance music scene and its key players and places
  • Basic knowledge of WordPress or other blogging platform
  • Basic photo editing skills
  • Attention to detail and the ability to self-manage
  • Availability on Tuesday evenings is a big plus (but not required)

If this sounds like your ideal fit, please send the following to jobs@dancemusicnw.com with the subject line “Music Reviewer”:

  • A brief paragraph describing why you want to write for Dance Music Northwest and your favorite EDM artists (And why!)
  • Three examples of previous small-to-medium format writing you’ve published online (if you don’t have this, write us three articles you would write if you were already a Music Reviewer)
  • A copy of your resume or a brief list of your qualifications as you see them
