Mamás Latinas, CafeMom's new bilingual website, is seeking an experienced staff writer to cover a variety of topics, from general lifestyle content to news and entertainment. All candidates must have significant online experience and the ability to work quickly, while paying close attention to the details. Content needs to be smart, high quality, and have personality. Candidates must have strong writing skills in English and/or Spanish and should be able identify topics and cover stories based on current news of high relevance to the US Latina. Individuals should be self-motivated and able to pitch the kinds of stories they would want to share with their Latina friends; able to generate ideas that are original, thought provoking and will drive traffic.

We are looking for candidates with a positive attitude, an open mind, a willingness to learn and experiment, a desire to be part of an amazing brand and a willingness to put forth 110% effort.
