The Role 

Are you the person in your family or friend group everyone else turns to for shopping recommendations? Do you always score the best deals on the best products? Come join our growing team! The HuffPost Shopping teams mission is to provide a service to our audience by carefully curating shopping content, ultimately minimizing the work readers need to do to find products & services that will help them lead better lives. Our readers are smart, educated consumers who want to put their hard-earned money to good use (while having fun, too). We use loads of product research, expert sourcing, brand discovery, product testing & data analytics. Our goal is to turn HuffPost into a shopping destination people return to regularly, because weve established trust with our readers through our devotion to quality, authenticity & diversity. We strive to combine spot-on product curation with an entertaining & informative writing style & trustworthy recommendations, so even if the products arent right for a reader, they can click away feeling like their time was well-spent.

We are looking for a junior writer for a full-time position on this team. The ideal candidate is a junior-level conversational writer & editor with proven skill or demonstrated interest in consumer- & shopping-related or other lifestyle content. If you're the type of person who's constantly discovering amazing new products, major deals & noteworthy new brands, we'd love to hear from you! 

You Will 

  • Write shareable, unique product roundups as well as SEO-friendly shopping guides & reviews.
  • Research products in various categories & price points that are of interest to the HuffPost audience.
  • Track & analyze your posts' site traffic & affiliate analytics in order to strategically pitch new ideas
  • Stay on top of current news & trends to pitch & write timely stories that readers are interested in at that very moment

You Have

  • Previous shopping / eCommerce writing experience OR equivalent experience with other kinds of service journalism OR demonstrated interest in shopping-focused journalism 
  • Previous experience with affiliate data & networks a plus 
  • Strong knowledge & interest in the following areas: Food/drink, style, beauty, wellness, fitness, health, work/life, travel, home, pets & parenting.
  • Attention to detail
  • Genuine love for the internet & online shopping 
  • Firm understanding of the HuffPost audience & voice

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: 

  • Draft two shopping roundups that show off your internet chops, writing prowess & -- especially important -- how well you get the HuffPost audience & voice.
  • Critique two stories from HuffPosts shopping section & tell us how you would have written that story.
