Sex & Dating Writer, Elite Daily
Editorial – Elite Daily
UPDATE: Thank you so much for your interest in this position! Unfortunately, we have received several dozen applicants and have chosen to move forward with them at this time. That said, we encourage you to still apply to this position here. If we have additional openings, we will be in touch!
Elite Daily is hiring remote Part-Time Sex & Dating Writers to contribute to the sex and dating vertical, from “how to get over a breakup” to “non-basic first date conversations” and everything in between.
We’re looking for someone who has a finger on the pulse of trends and conversations surrounding sex and dating. You should know the pressing, unique questions that millennial women have about breakups, crushes, relationships, awkward sex, and more. Most importantly, you should be super passionate about answering those questions! The ideal candidate is skilled at interviewing experts and working from his/her own dating experience to provide all kinds of responsible advice to millennial women.
No topic is off limits, so the ideal candidate will be more than comfortable deep-diving into sex-related topics — even the "taboo," like period sex and peeing the bed after a hookup. You should also have a unique, relatable, conversational writing voice that would fit with Elite Daily.
Candidates must have availability to work 3-4 seven hour shifts during the work week, M-F, during business hours 9am-6pm. Please detail your availability in your application.
In your cover letter, please rate your ability to cover each of the following sex and dating-related topics on a scale of 1 to 5 (1 being not able to cover at all, and 5 being very well-versed in the topic and able to cover):
Dating and social media
More explicit sex-related topics (like sex positions, period sex, dirty texts to send, etc.)

- 2+ years of writing experience, with a focus on reporting and interviewing experts

- Create 3-4 stories per shift
