About BuzzFeed

BuzzFeed is the leading independent digital media and tech company delivering news and entertainment content to a global audience.

Job Description

BuzzFeed is the world’s leading independent digital media and tech company, with a cross-platform news and entertainment network that reaches hundreds of millions of people globally and spreads Joy and Truth across the internet. 
Our portfolio of brands are household names that people rely on to inform and entertain, including: BuzzFeed, BuzzFeed News, Tasty, Nifty, Bring Me, Cocoa Butter, Pero Like, Worth It, and Unsolved to name a few!  These properties and their Creators reach over 134M people a month through articles, lists, videos, animations, quizzes, podcasts, original series, newsletters and more.

The Role 

BuzzFeed Shopping is a destination for service-oriented, entertaining, and informative affiliate content for our fellow shopping enthusiasts. Our freelancer program is rapidly growing as we start to strategize new ways to diversify and broaden our content. We now work with an ever-expanding pool of freelancers who share our passion for describing and carefully curating new, exciting products so readers can make meaningful and informed purchases that help them live their lives better. Our goal is for freelancer and full-time staff writers’ posts to seamlessly blend together, allowing our audience to enjoy a consistent experience when visiting BuzzFeed Shopping. We aim to sustainably grow our freelancers’ content contribution, and develop a strong freelancer community who has a firm understanding of our voice and editorial standards.  

We are looking for an Associate Freelance Editor for a full-time position on this team. The ideal candidate already has plenty of experience writing entertaining and conversational shopping content, and also has experience in editing consumer- and shopping-related content. You know how to manage your time wisely, and can edit multiple drafts a day without sacrificing quality. You’re not intimidated by busy listservs — perhaps you even thrive off of organizing your inbox! You can keep track of a full editing schedule, and will maintain a positive relationship with our freelancers.

You Will 

  • Edit freelance posts so that they meet our general best practices, are written in the BuzzFeed voice, and seamlessly blend with our regular BuzzFeed Shopping content. 
  • Keep track of your weekly editing schedule to make sure posts are submitted by their deadlines and are published in a timely manner. 
  • Work closely with the Market Freelance Strategy & Process Manager to help fulfill monthly partnership goals.  

You Have

  • Previous experience writing lists and shopping content or exemplary blogging/writing experience about consumer products.
  • 1+ years of experience editing shopping stories, either by staff or freelancers.
  • Strong attention to detail. 
  • Excellent time management and organizational skills. 
  • Previous affiliate experience is a big plus.

All job applications must be received through the official BuzzFeed Jobs board (https://www.buzzfeed.com/about/jobs), including referrals. It is BuzzFeed's practice to not schedule job interviews until after an application is submitted through our jobs board.
