The BDG Shops team collaborates with our Branded Content and Editorial teams to create revenue-driving affiliate content across a wide range of product categories, with a particular focus on fashion and beauty content on Bustle and The Zoe Report.

BDG Shops content leverages a newly-integrated native checkout tool, and the success of an article is measured based on the affiliate revenue it earns — this means the ideal candidate is not only a strong writer but can also effectively communicate what makes a product worth purchasing.  

Candidates should have three or more years of experience in content writing for digital or print, ideally in the fashion or beauty space. Previous experience with commerce or affiliate content writing is a plus. Most importantly, candidates should be knowledgeable and passionate about researching products and shopping trends. 

Candidates must have the availability to work 15-20 hours per week remotely (can be on their own time). This position is a 3-month contract with the possibility of extension.
