BDG is seeking a part-time, remote Associate Commerce Editor to join our growing Commerce and Affiliate Marketing team.

These articles, and the Commerce team broadly, operate separately from each site’s editorial team. Commerce articles are written to generate revenue from sales of products featured in the articles. The Commerce team covers the full range of product categories, including home, health, tech, beauty, etc.

Examples of the kinds of articles you’d work on:
The 50 Cheapest, Most Clever Home Upgrades On Amazon
