Reviewed is seeking an eager and talented content creator to join us as a full-time Staff Writer for the Partner Content team. This is editorially driven, not sponsored content.


The ideal candidate will have a deep curiosity about the world and an appreciation for smart service journalism. You’ll be part of a rapidly growing team and responsible for shaping daily content that helps people’s lives. You’ll have a chance to test out the most promising products and share your recommendations across the USA TODAY Network and beyond.


Our mission is to help people make the smartest decisions about what they buy and get the most out of the stuff they already own. We do this by providing our audience informative, enjoyable, and genuinely useful content.


This position contributes editorial content to partner content. We often partner with brands and outside organizations to create content relevant to their target audiences. The role is in the newsroom and requires a deep commitment to our ethics and our brand of service journalism. This position requires some editorial experience and comfort with experimentation. We would be open to writers who only have experience with their own personal site, school publication, or social media accounts, as long as they demonstrate an understanding of content production and journalistic ethics.


You’ll be a key contributor to a team on the vanguard of Reviewed’s editorial strategy. You’ll work alongside talented, like-minded product nerds to help shape our total editorial strategy.


The Partner Content Staff Writer role reports to the Editor for Partner Content and works in our editorial office in Cambridge, MA. Experienced remote employees may be considered, but our preference is for candidates in the greater Boston area.

  • Brainstorm story ideas with editor, director of business development, and audience team to pitch to key partners.

  • Produce quick-turnaround stories on a variety of topics.

  • Assist the editorial team as a whole in writing assignments and generating great story ideas, when needed.


Qualifications

  • Deep understanding of the consumer search trends and shopping habits

  • Competitive drive to be a leading editorial voice

  • An understanding of journalistic ethics and commitment to upholding high ethical standards

  • 1-3 years producing high-quality, rapid-turnaround editorial content is a plus

How to Apply:

We are eager to learn more about you and how you fit this role. When you apply, don’t limit your upload to a resume; show us what you’ve done. To do so, put together a single document file that includes the following, in this order:

  1. Your resume – one to two pages.

  2. A cover letter that outlines how you would approach the job.

It is important that these items be assembled into a single document and uploaded in PDF format. Completing these steps will ensure that your application receives the highest consideration.

Our Work Environment:

For candidates in the Boston/Cambridge area, you will eventually have access to our open floor plan office, with several smaller meeting rooms and test labs throughout the building. If remote, you’re expected to be accessible to the team throughout the day via email, phone, and Slack.

Here's what we have to offer:
