BDG Media is seeking a remote Associate Product Research Editor who can work remotely to join our successful and growing Commerce (affiliate marketing) Team. The team consists of editors and business strategists who create well-researched articles about products for all of BDG Media’s sites.
These articles, and the Commerce team broadly, operate separately from each site’s editorial team, and Commerce articles are written with the goal of generating revenue from sales of products featured in the articles. The Commerce team covers the full range of product categories, including home, health, tech, beauty, etc.
This role is ideal for anyone who is a detail-oriented editor, persuasive writer, and avidly researches products before purchasing them. This role is especially a great fit for those with a copyediting, fact-checking, or research background. Since this role is remote, candidates should be comfortable working and meeting deadlines in a self-starting environment.
The ideal candidate will have a mix of editorial and analytical skills. Candidates should understand how to tailor content to different types of audiences (as we write content for a variety of brands) and interpret data to help readers discover products they’ll love. We are looking for candidates with a background in writing and editing, and are open to candidates with other types of backgrounds (editing may have not been their central role, but was an important element in their job function).
Please note: this role does not solely focus on fashion and beauty, and candidates should be interested in a wide variety of products.
The Associate Product Research Editor’s day-to-day will include editing the commerce team’s product articles to ensure they uphold our editorial standards and successfully generate revenue through product sales. The role also requires researching products and product categories, and analyzing traffic and performance results to develop new types of content.
