San Francisco Staff Writer
Located in San Francisco
The Infatuation is looking for a full-time Staff Writer for our San Francisco market. Though no previous professional writing experience is required, we’re looking for someone who both enjoys, and is good at, writing - especially about restaurants and food. In this role, you’d be setting and managing the San Francisco editorial calendar, writing guides and reviews, creating weekly newsletters, and coordinating with photographers to shoot every piece we publish. In other words, if the idea of being largely responsible for our San Francisco content is exciting to you, read on.
We’re looking for someone who knows their way around Bay Area restaurants - ideally you’ve been here for some time, and can rattle off your favorite spots in a variety of neighborhoods, and also know which SF burrito is perfect at 1pm and which is better at 1am. That said, we prefer to work with people who don’t have ties to the industry. (In other words, please don’t write to us telling us how many chef friends you have, or how many followers your mac and cheese Instagram handle has.)
Interested? Write to email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com and:
1) Tell us a bit about yourself and why you’d be a good fit for the job (no formal cover letters please).
2) Pick a restaurant for each of the following “Perfect For” categories: Impressing Out Of Towners, Big Groups, and First/Early In The Game Dates. Write a few sentences (in The Infatuation voice) about the place and why you think it’s a fit for that Perfect For category. Take a look at the captions on the Guides on the site to get a feel for what we’re going for here.
3) Attach a resume.
Due to the volume of applicants, we may not be able to respond to every message. If it seems like you could be a fit, we’ll be in touch.
