The Role

BuzzFeed Canada is looking for a shopping- & products-focused writer for a contract junior position on our Toronto team in a contract role. BuzzFeed's shopping section is an expanding editorial endeavor that includes both service-oriented & entertaining content for a shopping-minded audience. You are a skilled & conversational writer with talent in consumer- & shopping-related content creation. You'll help our audience discover great products through entertaining & informative formats, from themed roundups to personal reviews & more. If you're the type of person who's constantly discovering bizarre kitchen gadgets, coupon codes, or interesting stores & sending links to your friends until they beg you to stop, we'd love to hear from you! 

Contracted rate is $4,000 - $4,300/mo; monthly rate will be based on experience.

You will:

  • Research products in various categories & price points that are of interest to the BuzzFeed audience.
  • Write shareable, unique product roundups as well as SEO-friendly shopping guides & reviews.
  • Track & analyze your posts' site traffic & affiliate analytics.

You have:

  • Previous experience/internship writing for a magazine or website about consumer products (or exemplary blogging/writing experience)
  • Strong attention to detail
  • Flawless spelling, grammar, & usage in your writing
  • A positive, curious, playful disposition with a sense of humor
  • An ability to write important information in a fun, conversational voice that sounds like someone talking to their best friend
  • Genuine love for the internet & online shopping
  • Understanding of the BuzzFeed audience & voice
  • Previous affiliate experience a big plus

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:
  • Discuss your shopping habits (e.g.: what do you always buy in-store vs. online, how do you find a good deal, what ~special tricks~ do you use that most people dont know about, etc.).
  • Tell us about a couple of products that youre obsessed with.
  • Include links to any relevant previous work, social media profiles, or portfolios.
