Staff Writer, Field & Stream, Commerce

Remote
Full Time
Outdoor & Science
Mid Level

The Opportunity:

Field & Stream is looking for a full-time Updates Editor to join its gear/commerce team, and help keep our products coverage clear, consistent, and current. The Updates Editor will monitor outdoor-industry news and our existing content to suggest and make revisions that benefit our roundups and reviews—and readers. In addition, the Updates Editor will bargain hunt online for the best deals to write up and recommend on a weekly basis. 

Though a specific area of outdoor expertise is helpful, we’re looking for a versatile, enthusiastic writer who can parse through any set of specs—and who’s obsessed with surfacing the details that matter to a discerning audience.

The ideal candidate will also have a nose for separating “good” products from “great” ones, and should be excited to pursue stories related to sustainability within the outdoor world—helping distinguish greenwashing claims from true impact. 

The Updates Editor will report to Field & Stream’s Gear Editor but will also collaborate with our SEO and editorial teams. Field & Stream is part of Recurrent Ventures, a virtual-first company with offices in New York, Miami, and San Francisco.

 

The Responsibilities:

  • Use our content management system to update reviews, roundups, how-to articles, and more.
  • Help the Gear Editor maintain tracking spreadsheets, product databases, and media libraries.
  • Collaborate with writers, editors, and SEO and social media strategists on updates to existing stories
  • Help execute retail event coverage like Black Friday and holiday gift guides 

 

The Qualifications:

  • 1 year of experience (internships count) writing about consumer products, preferably outdoors
  • Some background working both independently and collaboratively across editorial, commerce, and SEO teams, preferred
  • Experience working in content management systems
  • Interest in service journalism: Above all else, our goal is to help our readers find the reliable gear that’s useful, innovative, and affordable

 

The Person:

  • An excellent writer, copy editor, and researcher
  • A multitasker, capable of adept pitching, writing, and updating reviews and product roundups, in—and sometimes outside of—core coverage areas
  • A BS detector, with a critical eye for separating press-release claims and facts
  • An angler, hunter, camper, hiker, biker, etc.—in other words, someone who loves spending time outdoors 

 

The Benefits:

  • Medical, dental, vision & life insurance
  • Unlimited PTO
  • Remote - work from anywhere! (Offices in Miami, San Francisco, New York, San Diego)
  • Parental leave
  • Matching 401k
  • Equity package
