Editorial | New York, NY | Full Time
INSIDER is looking for a full-time entertainment reporter to join our team.
The ideal candidate has a broad knowledge of all things entertainment, from movies and TV shows to celebrities and Hollywood. In this role, you'll be called on to write visual features, quick aggregated posts, and in-depth feature stories, among other things.

Our style is smart, conversational, and geared toward a general audience. The entertainment reporter in this role will need to cover breaking stories in their beat and translate their insider knowledge to our mainstream readers. We also need a strong and versatile writer who will specialize in general interest entertainment slideshows and visuals features, like "Celebrity couples with huge age differences between them," "Stan Lee has made 58 cameos in the Marvel universe — here they all are," and "THEN AND NOW: Here's what the cast of 'Gossip Girl' is up to 10 years later."
The person we’re looking for is filled with great ideas and is excited about INSIDER’s mission to serve a huge digital audience through all kinds of storytelling, via all digital platforms.
The ideal candidate will have:
- Excellent writing and communication skills.
- One to three years of full-time writing experience in a fast-paced work environment.
- An obsession with all things entertainment and celebrity.
- A strong sense of what makes a great story and visuals with tons of great ideas.
- A journalism degree and/or background.
- An understanding of SEO, copy-editing skills, and Photoshop experience are also a plus.
The position is full-time in our New York City headquarters. INSIDER offers competitive compensation packages complete with benefits.
