About the role

Lifehacker, G/O Media's lifestyle site with 14 million monthly users, is looking for a staff writer with wide-ranging interests everything from news-pegged explainers to app reviews, travel tips, etiquette, food hacks and everything in between.

This is a position for a quick-witted, strong-voiced writer who is excited to help other people “live their best lives”— but in a productivity and delight sort of way, rather than as an Oprah mantra. If you’re a know-it-all who loves to debate the finer points of exactly how to make the perfect scrambled eggs, you will fit in well with the Lifehacker team. 

You should
  • Have at least 2 years of experience writing for a fast-paced online publication;
  • Be capable of turning around stories ranging from news blogs to longer features at a quick pace;
  • Be comfortable working across mediums, including video and podcasts;
  • Be eager to brainstorm about how to expand Lifehacker’s coverage, and to work in a fun, collaborative environment.
 

Please apply with a resume, cover letter, and answer the job-specific questions below. 

G/O Media is deeply committed to fostering a transparently inclusive workplace environment and people of color, women, people with disabilities, veterans and LGBTQ candidates are very strongly encouraged to apply. Our company-wide mission is to reach very diverse audiences and so, we are deeply committed to having teams and leaders that reflect this mission.

This position will be based in New York or remote.

This is a position covered under the collective bargaining agreement with the WGA-E.
