Our mission is to help people make the smartest decisions about what they buy and get the most out of the stuff they already own.

This position contributes to the day-to-day operations of Reviewed's Emerging Categories team. You will have the opportunity to write your own stories, but you will mostly be responsible for editing, updating, and commissioning stories in the Emerging Categories space, among other duties.

Responsibilities:

  • Edit roundups, features, lists, and other stories within the Emerging Categories and Lifestyle teams.

  • 3-5 years' experience showing demonstrated ability to produce high-quality, rapid-turnaround editorial content.
  • Strong collaboration and communication skills.
  • Strong commitment to journalistic ethics.
  • Management experience is a plus.
  • Adobe Analytics experience is a plus.
  • Newsletter editing experience is a plus.

How to Apply:

We are eager to learn more about you and how you fit this role. When you apply, don't limit your upload to a resume; show us what you've done. To do so, put together a single document file that includes the following, in this order:
  1. Your resume - one to two pages.
  2. A cover letter that outlines how you would approach the job.

It is important that these items be assembled into a single document and uploaded in PDF format. Completing these steps will ensure that your application receives the highest consideration.
