Bustle Digital Group is seeking a remote part-time Commerce writer to join our growing Commerce and Affiliate Marketing team.  

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 Commerce team covers the full range of product categories, including home, health, beauty, fashion etc. 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, and previous experience with commerce or affiliate content writing 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 three days per week (and 24 hours per week), Monday through Friday, during standard business hours. Please do not apply UNLESS you have this availability.
