We’re not necessarily hiring full time jobs, but we do have some specific roles open for regular paid work

I (Mike Roberto) founded PricePlow in 2008 and currently run it outside of Austin, Texas. We have a unique team of scientists, researchers, medical students, media specialists, and programmers who support the site and back me up.

I’m on a quest to bring research-backed knowledge to a greater mainstream audience while providing some great supplement deals along the way. In order to accomplish that, I’m building a team around me so that I can spend more time working on the heavier, harder projects.

There are no “full-time jobs” available, but there are specific paid specialist “roles” that are required on a consistent and near-daily basis. Use our contact page to apply for any of these roles. Those that are already filled are stricken through, but you can put your name in for future consideration if you like.

PricePlow’s Roles

Note: Nearly all roles are currently filled. We’re currently working out a better publishing process with fewer bottlenecks. More postings may come soon.

  • Writers

    Grammar and style are as important as factual knowledge and citations! We want to write articles about the following, paid per word:

    • In-depth Supplement Ingredient Analyses

      This role is currently filled. But since it’s the most-requested role, feel free to contact us anyway with a sample or an offer.

    • Ketogenic Diet / Intermittent Fasting / Weight Loss Research

      This role is currently filled.

      There are so many new keto diet studies coming out that we can’t keep up with all of them. If you’re into keto science, contact us.

    • Supplement Research Articles

      Want to write something such as the “end all be-all guide to citrulline“? We still need articles like this!

    • Supplement Industry News

    • This role is currently filled.

    Keto Diet Jobs

    There’s so much new keto / LCHF research coming out that we can’t keep up with it. But we’d like to…!

    Note that Mike often reformats and edits everything to his liking. When contacting us, tell us your desired rate (cost per word). If unsure, consider how much you’d want to get paid for a 1,000 word article.

    Bylines may be available over time.

  • Copy Editor

    This role is currently filled.

    All of the above articles could use serious red-lining, editing, and questioning/verification from a copy editor who understands the industry.

    When contacting us, tell us your rate per word.

  • Publisher

    Once edited, the above articles must be put into this WordPress blog. Images must be retrieved, named, and captioned; headings must be created, and the posts need to be configured with various options, tags, descriptions, etc.

    This role is currently filled (and backlogged).

  • App Developer

    Soon, we’ll have specifications ready for a PricePlow app (finally!)

    Essential Amino Acids vs. Branched Chain Amino Acids

    Our writers

    We’ll be looking for an Android / iOS App Development team to develop, test, and maintain the app.

  • Video Editor / Publisher

    This role is currently filled.

  • Technical Staff

    This role is currently filled. (PricePlow runs on a stack of Python and PHP.)

  • Virtual Assistant / Product Manager

    An hourly entry-level job making sure our most important products are properly organized and new products have been properly created by the system. It’s pretty mind-numbing so 2-3 hours per day max is suggested.

    This role is currently filled.

  • Social Media Manager

    This is currently a shared role, but we are not strong on Instagram and may consider more options.

    This role is currently filled.

Real talk

Let’s be real here: these are not full-time positions, they do not include benefits, and they’re not going to make you rich. But they may just pull you out of a jam — my goal is always to get someone towards “roommate rent money” — meaning, any of these can trend towards ~$1000/month.

Traits: Reliability and Consistency

The biggest traits I look for are reliability and consistency, at a pace we can all work with. Disappearing acts are the biggest turn-off. Ask yourself if you really have 1-2 hours to spare on a near-daily basis.

We use a task management system known as Asana to keep us organized and on target.

If you are a jack-of-all-trades and believe you can handle several of the jobs above, then we can talk more seriously.

Consider getting active in the PricePlow Forum

PricePlow’s Forum is definitely not the most active in the industry, but I’ve found this has been the best place to get to know potential candidates. As a “written-content-first” type of brand, what better place to see if someone can write well than on a written platform!

A supplement stepping stone

PricePlow is Hiring!

You don’t need one of these, but you do need your own PC or laptop

Hey, I get it. You want a full-time job in this biz. Who wouldn’t want to get paid to utilize their skills in their favorite industry?!

I understand that PricePlow is a great “stepping-stone” into the greater industry. It’s happened before and will happen again. If you give me a good half year or so, and I’m happy to eventually find you a real job. I know the game and am happy to be a reference.

Thanks for being a part of PricePlow Nation. Now hit us up on our contact page!
