Job Description

The right candidate is an inventive writer with a strong voice who is excited about the opportunity to write about a range of topics depending on the news and trends of the day – anything from an in-depth explainer on new CDC guidance to a quick-turn breakdown of the latest TikTok trend. We’re looking for not just a strong writer, but an original thinker who is also a great teammate and collaborator. 

Working with a strong knowledge of SEO and social media trends, the News and Trending Writer will identify outside-the-box story ideas that speak to our young audience and produce articles with a strong, authentic voice. Experience working with broadcast teams to repackage on-air content for a digital audience is helpful but not required.

  • At least 3 years of professional experience writing for a digital-first news organization or brand.
  • Experience working in a newsroom and creating content on fast-paced deadlines.
  • Strong grasp of AP style.
  • Prior experience working with a CMS.
  • Understanding of digital analytics and trends.
  • Basic current knowledge of copyright laws as it applies to digital publishing and social media.

  • Must be able to work flexible hours including weekends and holidays.
