- EDITORIAL – ELITE DAILY /
Elite Daily is seeking a full-time Lifestyle Editor to help develop and oversee the site’s Experiences vertical. From the latest TikTok challenges to service-driven how-tos, the Experiences vertical brings readers the tools they need to live their best lives.
Like our millennial and Gen Z readership, applicants should have a deep passion for experiences over things, such as outdoor winter fitness activities you can safely do in your own backyard and Bridgerton-inspired home decor ideas. They should also be comfortable writing about and editing a wide variety of lifestyle topics, including Instagram captions, the current state of travel, personal narratives, and important projects from underrepresented groups. Coverage includes everything from how to bond with your long-distance best friends over the holidays to virtual events that celebrate & support BIPOC voices.
The ideal candidate is adaptable, creative, has a unique perspective, and possesses the ability to produce thoughtful, clean, authoritative, and engaging stories and headlines. They must also display an understanding of the Elite Daily voice, which is equal parts relatable, clever, inclusive, and fun. Experience in original reporting is a plus.
While we are based in New York City, remote candidates are encouraged to apply.
