The ideal candidate is a driven editor with previous experience in content management (preferably in a commerce/ affiliate context) and a passion for DIY and the home and garden vertical.

This is a part-time position with the potential to become a full-time role. BobVila.com is based in New York City, NY; remote applicants are welcome. To apply, submit your resume, links to/ examples of your work, and a brief cover letter describing your interest in the position.
