  • Research products to test for various buying guides across a variety of coverage topics
  • Build and format articles in the CMS
  • Fact-check and copy-edit articles
  • Analyze search trends and data

The buying guides team works across all sections of Insider Reviews and covers topics including home, kitchen, style, tech, beauty, outdoors, fitness, pets, parenting, and more.

All our editorial fellows should have:

  • A passion for digital storytelling and e-commerce journalism
  • A desire to discover and recommend only the best products and services
  • Familiarity with digital and social media
  • Ability to work quickly and collaboratively with a fast-paced team

The Insider Fellowship Program is for early career journalists who want to spend six months learning from a newsroom full of passionate, dedicated journalists. Fellows are assigned to teams and become experts in digital storytelling. They produce real work that is distributed to our audience of millions, and by the end of six months are prepared for the next phase of their journalism careers. For more information on the Insider Fellowship Program, see.

Please note: This paid fellowship requires that you work remotely, preferably full-time at 40 hours a week, for six months.
