JOB DETAILS
 

BuzzFeed

BuzzFeed is the worlds leading tech-powered, diversified media company that reaches hundreds of millions of people globally through its cross-platform news & entertainment network. The company produces articles, lists, quizzes, videos, & original series; lifestyle content through brands including Tasty, the worlds largest social food network; original reporting & investigative journalism through BuzzFeed News & HuffPost; an industry-leading affiliate business, strategic partnerships, licensing & product development through BuzzFeed Commerce; & original productions across broadcast, cable, SVOD, film & digital platforms for BuzzFeed Studios.

The Role

BuzzFeed is looking for a driven, creative, & internet-obsessed writer to join its Lifestyle properties which cover topics including mental health & wellness, food, travel, sex & relationships, beauty, DIY/home, parenting, general life skills, & more.

Our Lifestyle coverage is often service-driven & centered around anything people might be interested in doing better or learning more about. Depending on the coverage area, you will be expected to write on the topic with authority, or lay out a plan to research & interview experts who are.

You should have enough lifestyle knowledge to share tips & tricks, & enough of a low-key (or high-key) internet obsession to quickly find, drive, & react to current trends & news. Youre just as comfortable testing out morning routine hacks or the latest viral skincare combo as you are interviewing experts or writing about a personal life change.

The ideal candidate will be able to produce work quickly, experiment with lots of different content types, & be interested in analyzing the results of their work.

BuzzFeed is working remotely through September 2021, & being based in NYC or LA is ideal for an eventual return to our offices. However, we are open to considering candidates who are legally authorized to work in the US without sponsorship in the following states: California, Colorado, Connecticut, DC, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, & Washington.

You Will 

  • Write lifestyle posts that are shareable, helpful, entertaining, & cater to a diverse audience
  • Create service-driven lifestyle content like personal I Trieds & expert-sourced explainers with an eye on SEO
  • Stay up-to-date with current happenings & trending topics around lifestyle including anything bubbling up on Reddit, TikTok, or Instagram
  • Monitor & analyze your posts' traffic, performance, & audience impact
  • Potentially help manage a small freelance network

You Have

  • At least 1 year experience writing content about lifestyle for a website or magazine (or exemplary blogging/writing experience)
  • Sharable & conversational writing & editing skills, including strong spelling, grammar, & attention to detail
  • Ability to optimize content for maximum engagement across platforms like Google Discover, TikTok, Instagram, Pinterest, & Flipboard 
  • An understanding & appreciation of BuzzFeeds & Tastys voice & diverse audience (primarily Gen Z & Millennial)

FYI just because you dont meet every requirement doesnt mean we dont want to hear from you. If you think youd be a good fit for the job anyway, use your application to show us why!

To apply:

In lieu of a traditional cover letter, please include a response to the following with your application:

  • Tell us about your quarantine experience as it relates to Lifestyle: What was the best thing you tried, learned, or bought? How did your everyday habits change (or not change)?
  • Who is an expert or prominent figure in the Lifestyle space that you find fascinating & why?
  • Tell us about a few Lifestyle-related things that you absolutely love. (Could be: Under-the-radar IG or TikTok accounts; TV shows, podcasts, or newsletters; secret menu items; small businesses, etc)
  • Include links to any relevant previous work, social media profiles, or portfolios.

All job applications must be received through the official BuzzFeed Jobs board (https://www.buzzfeed.com/about/jobs), including referrals. It is BuzzFeed's practice to not schedule job interviews until after an application is submitted through our jobs board.
