Staff Writer

New York, United States · Editorial


We're Food52, a groundbreaking and award-winning kitchen and home brand. We support, connect and celebrate our community of cooks and home enthusiasts, giving them everything they need to eat thoughtfully and live joyfully.


Candidates must have written or edited professionally for 3 to 5 years. You’ll succeed in this role if you have a demonstrated love of food and lifestyle topics, along with a strong understanding of both story and service. You can switch gears from short to longer form with ease. You’re good at keeping your head up and knowing which news to jump on—and why. You see a positive challenge in entering the conversation while maintaining a distinct point of view, and you have a keen eye for content gaps and stories that will bring in new audiences.

This role will work with a fast-moving editorial team to produce clever, useful, shareable online stories daily, covering topics ranging from food and food culture to home, travel, and wellness. You're quick-thinking and you delight in stories about cooking tips as much as you do those about the significance of cherry pie in Twin Peaks. You have very many opinions about very many things, and you want to chase Twitter conversations to bring new feature ideas—from short- to medium- to long-form—to the table regularly. You champion cultural diversity and have an interest in bringing new stories and voices into the editorial fold.

You must be a natural on social media and tuned in to the world at large. You have a desire to see articles through full circle—from pitch to publication to performance. You’re an ace with deadlines, a fast reader, and you can write the hell out of a headline.

We're a collaborative, scrappy, and creative team, and you should value and match those attributes. Also, we're funny. No really, we are. Are you?

Please note: Food52 hopes to recruit and advance qualified minorities, women, LGBTQ, persons with disabilities, and veterans—we welcome and encourage all applicants. Our goal is for our team and culture to reflect the diversity of the global community of home cooks.
