Sounders Nation seeks new writers, Seattle Sounders fans

Sounders Nation has steadily grown as FanSided’s home for Seattle Sounders FC coverage dating back to when the site was first launched in early 2012. Since then, the league has boomed as soccer continues its rapid growth in North America The constant has always been our goal here on site: to give you folks, our readers, the very best Sounders discussion that we possibly can.

The MLS season kicks off on March 6th and we’re looking for writers to help us cover all the potential angles around the league.

Consider yourself a passionate fan? Read us or other Sounders sites with regularity and ever wonder if you should write about the team too? Maybe you’re just stumbling across us for the first time and you like what you see. We are looking to add to our staff here on site and this could be your chance to grab a stick and join the team.

Sounders Nation is currently looking to fill multiple roles on site, including staff writer roles for the more casual writers just getting their legs under them.

Expectations

We like to let our staff write about the aspects of the Sounders they are most passionate about. There’s room for those interested in covering any aspect of your favorite team. Maybe you’re more of a transfer junkie and you want to talk about the impact a new signing or trade could have. Or even just chipping in on game previews, roundtable discussions on staff about how the team should approach the offseason or whether a big move is needed to get them back on top, or helping with a number of other potential story ideas there could be a place for you here on the team.

Writers are asked to contribute 1-2 posts per week. We’ll always welcome more frequent contributions than that, but we won’t require it.

We know that for most this is mostly a hobby and something you do for the love of it. That’s why we do it too, as most of us have families, full-time careers, and/or school to balance into our lives as well (there’s room for things besides sports, right?). This is an opportunity to join a staff of writers here who are just simply passionate about Sounders soccer as we are and want to continue to reach the rest of this great fan base.

If you are up for a bigger challenge, Sounders Nation is also looking to fill a paid co-editor role at MLS Multiplex as well. This role requires a further commitment, but also comes with financial compensation. If you are interested in the role and would like further details, please see the email address below.

Want to join us?

Applying is very easy. Head on over and complete an application. It’ll give you a chance to share some insight into your background (prior online writing experience is not necessary but always encouraged) and let us know why you’d be a fit on site, so give it your best. We’ll be in touch from there.

If you have any questions about the roles, please feel free to email [email protected] with any questions.
