We’re excited to be launching Infatuation Seattle later this year, and we’re looking for the right person to help us make that happen.
If you’re the person who friends are constantly asking where they should go on a third date, or the person who’s always tasked with picking the restaurant for a group dinner - you might be our person. In this role, you’d be writing all the restaurant reviews and neighborhood/situational guides (i.e. Where To Go On A Date, The Best Restaurants For Birthdays) that will power our brand new Seattle site.
What you won't be doing is going to restaurant openings, interviewing chefs, or writing long-feature stories about how goji berry lattes are the next big thing. (Not only would that stop us from being unbiased, we also don't think those things are a service to our readers.) Which means you absolutely do not need to have experience as a professional food writer. In fact, we prefer to work with people who don't have ties to the industry. The most important thing is that you know the city and its restaurants - from the newcomers to the longtime classics (and everything in between).
Interested? Write a review of a Seattle restaurant, or a short guide (to a neighborhood or for a particular situation - around five spots is good) and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Read The Infatuation to get a sense of our tone and style. Make it funny.) Tell us a bit about yourself, but no need for formal cover letters. If it seems like a fit, we’ll be in touch.
ABOUT THE INFATUATION: You know the trusted friends you turn to when you need a restaurant suggestion? That’s us. We aren’t “professional” food critics, meaning you won’t hear any pretentious foodie hobnob from us. We also aren’t restaurant industry insiders, nor do we accept invites, comped meals, or solicited reservations. Ever. We strive to make the reviews and guides that we write both entertaining and useful, so that you can find a restaurant that’s “Perfect For” whatever you need, be it some Action At The Bar, or a Casual Weeknight Dinner. In addition to our website and app, we operate over 15 Instagram accounts, and run an on-demand text message-based restaurant recommendation service called Text Rex. Our business is supported by partnerships with brands such as American Express, Samsung, Budweiser, and AirBnB.
