You'll be responsible for updating product choices in gift guides, writing informative yet relatable explainers, and uncovering must-have beauty items.

The ideal candidate will be skilled at sourcing, testing, and recommending products in a highly informative yet compelling manner while incorporating SEO and commerce best practices.

• Update existing content, ensuring the latest product launches, consumer trends, and internal brand goals are reflected
• Recommend and contribute audience-appropriate beauty products to uniquely targeted gift guides, sales initiatives, and performance marketing generated content
• Analyze top-performing content using data tools to understand what products our readers are engaging with and make updates accordingly
• Work closely with our SEO and Commerce teams to ensure best practices are being met
• Source contributors to create authoritative beauty content when necessary
• Pitch timely and relevant ideas for buying guides or product reviews in order to keep our brand competitive in the beauty industry
• Develop relationships with PR reps

Who you are:
• You have 2 to 3 years of professional writing experience covering the beauty vertical in the editorial commerce space
• You can work independently, are extremely detail-oriented, and thrive in a deadline-oriented environment
• You have successful and current relationships with key PR people in the beauty space
• You have a strong interest in following beauty trends and new launches
• You have a flexible mindset; we pivot and reprioritize quickly
