BuzzFeed is looking for a contract streaming writer who can contribute streaming and entertainment focused articles to the BuzzFeed Shopping team in conjunction with its paid affiliate partners.

• Cover any major news stories in the world of streaming - subscription discounts, acquisitions, shake-ups, bundles - that might be relevant to our audience.
• Tune into streaming specials and events at the discretion of the Entertainment Partnership Manager and file recaps or appreciation-style posts.
• Keep tabs on the broader streaming world and be prepared to take on entertainment focused projects outside of the TV/film beat as dictated by new paid partners and/or a changing streaming landscape.
• Optimize links to streaming platforms in posts.
• Follow our Shopping team's best practices and meet our editorial standards by choosing and describing TV and film titles in a thoughtful, informative way that matches the BuzzFeed voice.

You Have
• Previous experience writing about entertainment and/or pop culture.
• A trained eye for what's starting to percolate online.
• An interest in the business of streaming and the flexibility to keep up with the demands of this rapidly evolving beat.
• The ability to turn around quick, clean, and conversational copy when covering news or new releases.
