About Your Role

The Beauty & Style Group is seeking a Commerce Writer to write and update beauty and style product roundups and reviews. The ideal candidate is a self-starter who is equally passionate about researching beauty and style products and explaining what to look for when buying a product. As the group's Commerce Writer, you will be responsible for writing and updating researched and testing-based roundups in the beauty and style category. We are looking for someone who can create quality content and that thrives in a fast-paced environment.

About Your Contributions

• Audit content using competitor analysis, marketplace knowledge, and internal data (tested insights, for instance) to produce meaningful updates that help keep our content current.

• Update existing lists and write new content for the Beauty and Style Group, maintaining high-quality standards along the way.

• Research and write supplemental content like what to look for, pros/cons, buying guides, and more. This may involve conducting interviews and gathering original quotes that support the commerce content funnel.

• Assist in our testing process, whether evaluating products at home, writing up results, attending lab testing days, or gathering insights from testers or community members.

• Research new products and trends, as well as competitor picks, to make sure we're making the best recommendations to our readers.

• Harness your category-level expertise to write first-person reviews and roundups, including video and photo capture like before and after images. 

• Assist with ad-hoc projects and tasks as needed, some of which may require data analysis to help inform strategy.

• Analyze market trends to discover the best beauty and style launches, and make conclusions about what makes them press-worthy.

About You

• 1-2 years writing experience at an online publisher.

• Ability to write about beauty and style products in an accessible way.

• Detail-oriented and deadline-focused with solid writing and editing skills, as well as a deep understanding of what works in a digital media landscape.

• A personal interest in all things beauty and style, an eye for products, and the know-how to provide the reader with different options that suit their needs. Although a beauty and fashion background is not necessary, knowledge of how to write about these topics as well as industry trends is a plus.

• Strong copywriter, capable of writing engaging, lively headlines and blurbs, all the while keeping the voice of our Beauty and Style brands, values, style, and audience in mind.

• Demonstrated commitment to using inclusive language and making sure copy speaks to all populations.

• Self-starter who wants to work for a growing company.

• Proven aptitude for communicating and collaborating with both remote editorial workers and in-house editorial team members.

• College degree or equivalent experience required.

An Insider's view of Dotdash Meredith

What projects are you most excited about?

Atomic design is in our DNA at Dotdash. We're striving to have the dev and design teams work closer together and use a single source of truth for how components are pieced together using predefined molecules and atoms. This is exciting and innovative work that is helping us scale at an incredible rate and deliver on our promise of fastest sites!

Brian

Manager, Front-End Development

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We do quite a few things to encourage creativity like hackathons, design sprints, and "Unconferences". That said, I think the most meaningful thing we do is to encourage teams to be autonomous. Having control and ownership over their respective applications gives our team members the freedom to explore ideas to solve their own problems.
