Remote /
Editorial – Elite Daily /
Part-time
Do you have strong opinions about Netflix rom-coms? Would you rather re-watch every season of Grey’s Anatomy than go to a party? Did you know about The Queen’s Gambit before everyone was tweeting chess memes? If yes, then Elite Daily’s TV/Movies Writer position is for you.

Elite Daily is a seeking remote, part-time writer to contribute two shifts per week to the Entertainment vertical. Day-to-day responsibilities include identifying TV/movie stories our reader would be interested in, pitching unique angles on trending content, and turning around clean and engaging copy.
