You have:

  • At least 3 years of professional experience writing and editing pop culture content
  • A high level of comfort editing a variety of content, from lists and quizzes to medium-form and interviews
  • A genuine, wide-eyed love of pop culture in all its forms
  • High emotional intelligence and the ability to take perspective of others
  • High level of organizational skills and a collaborative nature
  • A hunger for success — you enjoy winning, really going for it
  • A positive, curious, playful disposition (a "no haters" philosophy)
  • Experience managing people a plus

To apply:

  • Create an account at buzzfeed.com/signup, send us your BuzzFeed profile, and create two (or more) posts that show off your writing skills
