Greenbelly is currently looking for technical writers to write backpacking guides and review thru-hiking gear.

About the Job

Every week, Greenbelly publishes a new blog post that helps backpackers and thru-hikers be better prepared and more efficient out on the trail.

Most of our articles fall under one of three categories: gear reviews, trail guides and backpacking how to's. 

Your job will consist in testing, photographing and reviewing the best thru-hiking gear on the market. Here are some examples of gear reviews we've published in the past:

For each post, we'll provide you with a detailed outline, including some common gear questions you'll answer based on your own experience and/or research. 

Expect two to three assignments every month.
