  • Original Thinker & Problem Solver: We strive to think outside the box and look at every problem as an opportunity to evolve. You must be able to take a topic, review the competitive landscape and come up with suggestions for how to write something better than what others are doing. We do not believe in cookie-cutter solutions.
  • Excellent Communicator: Because this is a remote role, the ability to respond to tasks and messages in a timely manner is critical. Proactively asking questions and seeking feedback is likewise essential.
  • Self-Motivated: You must be able to manage your time and meet deadlines without prompting.
  • Take Pride in Your Work: The answer to the question “Is this your best work?” should always be “Yes.”

  • Review and edit blog posts from our newer writers.
  • Review videos and photos from our team and coordinate sending assets to clients.
  • Create social media images in Canva for a handful of food blogs.

Secondary Responsibilities:

  • Write conversational blog posts in a voice similar to that of a blogger we are creating content for. These posts must give readers the information they are looking for when learning about a recipe or food topic. 
  • Optimize the posts you write and also help the SEO team optimize posts written by our ghostwriting team. This includes uploading images, writing ADA-compliant ALT tags, recipe card optimizations, Yoast SEO, and Grow or Social Warfare optimizations. 

More Details:
