Bustle Digital Group is seeking a remote part-time Affiliate Shopping Writer to join our growing Commerce and Affiliate Marketing team. As an Affiliate Shopping Writer, you will research and write shopping guides and product roundups across a number of BDG’s titles including Bustle, The Zoe Report, Elite Daily, and Inverse. Additional responsibilities include revising existing articles for voice, accuracy, and SEO best practices. Those in this role are expected to do original reporting including interviewing experts, and they will also work on single product/brand spotlight reviews. This role will cover a range of product categories including home, health, and tech. 
 
The Commerce team operates separately from each site’s editorial team, and Commerce articles are written to generate revenue from sales of products featured in the articles. The success of an article is measured based on the affiliate revenue it earns — this means a strong candidate needs to not only be a strong writer but able to effectively communicate what makes a product worth purchasing. 
 
The ideal candidate should have three or more years of experience writing for online or print, ideally in the beauty, tech, or lifestyle spaces. Previous experience with commerce or affiliate content writing, reporting, and SEO is a plus. Most importantly, candidates should be knowledgeable and passionate about researching products, especially those found on Amazon. 
 
Candidates must be able to work remotely at least two days per week, Monday through Friday, during standard business hours. Please do not apply UNLESS you have this availability. 

This role does not solely focus on fashion and beauty, and candidates should be interested in a wide variety of products. 

A cover letter is not needed with your application. We prioritize the affiliate-related work samples on the next page in the hiring process.
