Commerce Writer

Remote
Business & Operations – Commerce
Part-time
Bustle Digital Group is seeking a part-time, remote Commerce Writer to create affiliate content about beauty, health, home, fashion, lifestyle, and sex and relationships for all of our digital properties (this can include Bustle, Elite Daily, Romper, Mic, Inverse, The Zoe Report, and Nylon). Writers will produce informative listicles and slideshows featuring products our readers will love across a wide range of categories (assignments can range from topics like “The Best Air Fryers” to “The Best Moisture-Wicking Underwear” to “The Best Products To Upgrade Your Bathroom For $35 Or Less.”) 

The goal of this content is to compel readers to purchase the products that are suggested 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 an excellent writer, but they should be a great researcher and product marketer/salesperson, too.

The ideal candidate should have at least three years of experience writing for online or print publications, ideally within verticals across the lifestyle space, like beauty, consumer technology, home, apparel, kids, health, etc. Previous commerce or affiliate writing experience, SEO knowledge, and sales copy experience is a plus, but not required. 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 2 to 4 full days per week, Monday through Friday, during business hours. Please do not apply UNLESS you have this availability — we don’t operate on weekend hours, so an ideal candidate is someone who is looking for a part-time role that offers competitive hourly rates.
