Bustle is Seeking a Temporary, Remote Writer to Cover Trending Lifestyle News and Service For Its Life Vertical

Day-to-day responsibilities include pitching and writing tech and viral articles on tight deadlines. The candidate will also occasionally write second-day service stories after major news events. Examples of the kinds of articles you’d work on include this story about a TikTok-viral recipe, this one on how to use new iOS16 features, and this service story on how to fight for reproductive rights.

The ideal candidate is TikTok-obsessed and up to date on the latest digital trends and news events. Candidates must also be creative, familiar with Bustle's voice, and able to produce high-quality, accurate copy in a fast-paced environment.
