Commerce Writer

Remote
Business & Operations – Commerce
Part-time
Bustle Digital Group is seeking a part-time, remote Commerce Writer to create affiliate content for all of our digital properties (Bustle, Elite Daily, Romper, and others). 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 Underwear For Working Out” to “Random But Genius Products For Millennials”)

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 a strong writer but a great product marketer, too.

The ideal candidate should have 3 or more years of experience writing for online or print, ideally in the beauty, tech, or lifestyle space. Previous experience with commerce or affiliate content writing, reporting, and SEO 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 2 to 3 days per week, Monday through Friday, during normal business hours. Please do not apply UNLESS you have this availability.
