In order to satisfy the community with quality content on a regular basis, It’s Gosu is looking for passionate writers, translators and proofreaders for Dota 2, League of Legends and StarCraft II.

It’s Gosu eSports was founded in 2009 and was, at that time, a very small community with a handful of electronic sports enthusiasts. However, this rapidly changed during the spring of 2011, as we signed our first professional teams for League of Legends and StarCraft II by acquiring All4One Gaming.  

Within a year, we went from a small organization to one of the largest and most respected in America. We did not rest on our laurels as we continued to work on the development of It’s Gosu notably by hosting tournaments for both, casual and professional gamers from the four corners of the globe. However, we get to a point where providing the community with constant updates, tournament coverage and exclusive content start to be a difficult task, and your help could solve this problem. If you want to be a part of our organization and help us achieve greater results, then you can read on and find out the available positions for Dota 2, League of Legends and StarCraft II.
