CAREERS

At SonyRumors.net, we’re always looking for new and ambitious members of the community to join our already talented staff. Unlike other major sites, SRN, from the ground up, is built, based, and supported by the community and not corporations. Due to this practice, we work only for the love of our vision, though there are perks like attending E3, Comic-Con, PAX, and CES as press and building your resume. Though we come from a humble base, our goals are anything but grounded and instead, based on building the best Sony and PlayStation community we can.

This is why we need ambitious, self-motivated and creative members of the community like you to join our intern team. Though we work in small teams, we achieve grand things and your thoughts, inputs, and suggestions are always welcomed.
