We’re looking for an experienced writer and editor with a passion for the luxury market, a pulse on what’s fresh and exciting in the space, and who is well-versed in using data and reporting tools to inform editorial ideas.

In this role, you’ll have the opportunity to work with a wide variety of merchants across the fashion, beauty, and home categories and create content for our various distribution channels. You should be skilled at making data-driven decisions and seeking out new opportunities based on content trends. This position will report to the Senior Commerce Editor, Fashion & Luxury.

Please note: For consideration, resumes must be submitted in PDF format with a cover letter, salary requirements, and a link to a portfolio or samples of work.

• Write, update, or edit 1-3 shopping-focused pieces of content daily that maintain the brands’ taste levels and sensibilities.
• Stay on top of the latest deals and work with our preferred retailers to plan for sale events and upcoming launches.
• Track performance of content to inform and execute on new areas of opportunity to increase affiliate commerce revenue.
• Work closely with Hearst’s Commerce team to maintain best practices in order to meet ambitious revenue goals.

• 3+ years of experience as a writer, with a minimum of 1 at a digital-first outlet — a background in commerce, particularly within the fashion and luxury space, is a plus.
• Sharp writing and self-editing skills and a talent for turning around clean, accurate copy.
• Strong angling and packaging skills and an understanding of SEO and social best practices.
• Ability to understand analytics and translate them into editorial action — familiarity with Google Analytics, Looker, Skimlinks, or similar reporting tools is a plus.
• Comfortable juggling multiple projects simultaneously and working independently.
• Well-versed in building strong relationships and explaining complex topics in simple terms.
• Available to work major shopping holidays.

The base salary for this role is between $67,000 and $75,000. The actual base pay offered is dependent upon many factors, such as: transferable skills, work experience, business needs and market demands. The base pay range is subject to change and may be modified in the future.
