Job Title
Associate Commerce Editor, Travel News & Deals

Dotdash Meredith is looking for a highly motivated and digitally savvy, full-time Associate Commerce Editor to join the news/deals travel vertical, working on Travel + Leisure. This role will balance writing content - covering timely, travel-related shopping content, including sale roundups, celebrity-approved items, single product reviews, and first-person roundups - with helping to edit copy from on-staff members and freelance contributors. The ideal candidate is a self-starter who is passionate about travel and commerce-focused stories and who can create quality content and thrive in a fast-paced environment.

The associate editor supports our editors with onboarding and managing freelancer relationships, assists with promotions of News & Deals commerce content across social platforms, and works with our writer on content promotions in our T+L Recommends newsletter. The associate editor's primary goal will be to work with editors and writers to meet our weekly and monthly production goals, ensure workflows are as efficient as possible, and work on tentpole shopping events, such as Prime Day, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and more.

The associate editor should have some past writing and editing experience (ideally in the commerce space), be a creative problem solver, and work quickly to pivot and propose potential solutions to create the best commerce content. This role will need to work in the Dotdash Meredith CMS, as well as on Airtable, Slack, Google Suites, SEMrush, Parsley, and Looker.

The Associate Commerce Editor reports to the Senior Editor on T+L's news/deals team. You'll be expected to follow guidelines for updates, brand voice, and standards, as well as ensure our news/deals commerce content is accurate, inclusive, comprehensive, and accessible to all readers.

About Your Contributions:
• Write, assign, edit, and publish stories with help from a dedicated team of full-time editors & writers
• Identify and execute on commerce content opportunities within various lifestyle categories including fashion, beauty, wellness, and travel
• Use data and analytics to brainstorm and guide content decisions
• Collaborate closely with numerous writers and editors on the T+L News and Deals team along with members on the Evergreen commerce team
• Monitor social media (TikTok, Instagram, etc.) for commerce opportunities, including celebrity style and viral products, and film IG reels on your favorite travel products
• Attend weekly editorial meetings
• Be available to work major shopping events, including Amazon Prime Day, Black Friday, etc.

About You:
• 1-2 years of writing and editing experience at an online publisher, ideally in the commerce and affiliate industry
• Experience with SEO best practices and tools and how it relates to content
• Proficiency in management tools like Google Suite and Airtable
• A deep knowledge of, passion for, and understanding of the shopping and travel industry, as well as lifestyle products and content
• Good communication and organizational skills
• A self-starter who can pivot seamlessly across multiple beats and as new initiatives and directives are identified
• Personal interest in online shopping and strong product research skills
• Open to new challenges and excited to grow within a fast-paced, expanding, and constantly evolving organization
• CMS experience required
