We are looking for an Associate Commerce Editor to produce engaging shopping-related content from our Santa Monica office.

A big vision calls for a big job. As we grow, our need for an Associate Commerce Editor grows with us.

  • Participating in production of shopping-related Instagram Stories.
  • Updating old content with fresh links.
  • Monitoring analytics and data to jump on successes and come up with new strategies for increasing readership and revenue.
