INSIDER lifestyle reporter
Editorial | New York, NY | Full Time
INSIDER is hiring a full-time reporter to write about lifestyle.
We’re looking for a clear writer who is obsessed with all things related to lifestyle with an emphasis on food. The reporter will write a mix of visual features (photo-driven slideshows) and quick posts as well as more in-depth pieces with an emphasis on original reporting.
The reporter will contribute to a lifestyle team covering stories like Ben & Jerry’s releasing an anti-Trump ice cream, Meghan Markle wearing a pasta necklace, and Lush creating an eggplant emoji-inspired bath bomb. They will also compile visual features that tell compelling stories through photos, such as these foods created to look like optical illusions to magical photos of real-life weddings at Disney.
They should be comfortable with writing experiential stories, from trying the latest themed Starbucks Frappuccino to Mayochup, a hybrid of mayo and ketchup. They should also be confident in reaching out to experts in the lifestyle world.
We’re looking for a candidate with:
- One to three years of full-time writing experience
- Experience in a fast-paced working environment
- Excellent writing and communication skills
- A strong sense of what makes a great story and tons of great ideas
- A journalism background
- A broad interest in food, as well as other lifestyle topics
Experience of working in a CMS, using Photoshop, copy-editing skills, and an understanding of SEO best practices are a plus.
This position is full-time and based in our New York City headquarters. INSIDER offers competitive compensation packages complete with benefits.
