Editor – Kitchen & Cooking


Reviewed/reviewed.com, a part of the USA TODAY NETWORK, is seeking an experienced content creator to join us as a full-time Editor for the Kitchen & Cooking category. The ideal candidate will have a solid understanding and informed opinions of the kitchen tools and gadgets that home chefs love. 

 

You’ll be part of a growing team, creating daily content about kitchen products, ovens, the “smart kitchen,” and other home goods. Your work will be read across the USA TODAY Network and beyond. 

 

We live by our mission: To help people buy the best stuff and get the most out of the stuff they own. There’s no shortage of “stuff” for the modern kitchen, so we test it all. Our product recommendations are trusted by millions because we put in the hard work: rigorous testing and helpful, shareable articles that speak to home chefs and kitchen geeks.

As Editor, you’ll be the category lead on a two-person team (plus 5-6 regular freelance contributors) responsible for testing, writing, editing, and updating our Kitchen & Cooking product guides, as well as writing and editing various stories on the topic. 

You’ll work alongside editors of our other verticals to help shape our total editorial strategy and build relationships with key brands in order to stay informed on industry developments. 

This position requires someone with a deep and abiding love of kitchen gear and cooking, as well as the ability to turn out fast, clean copy that connects with readers. This is a perfect fit for an editor looking to move to a publication with a wider audience or a writer looking to step up into an editor’s role.

  • Write reviews and quick-turnaround feature stories on relevant topics.
  • Update and maintain the roundup reviews (“The Best Right Now” articles) for your categories.
  • Assist the editorial team as a whole in writing assignments and generating great story ideas.

Requirements:

  • Bachelor's or master’s degree in communications, journalism, marketing or related field or equivalent combination of education and experience.
  • 3-5 years producing high-quality, rapid-turnaround editorial content.
  • Deep passion for and understanding of the kitchen and cooking product market.
  • Competitive drive to be a leading editorial voice.
  • An understanding of journalistic ethics and commitment to upholding high ethical standards.
