CafeMom's blog, The Stir, seeks experienced freelance writers to cover a variety of topics: general lifestyle, news, and entertainment -- all with a parenting perspective. 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 should be self-motivated and able to pitch the kinds of stories they would want to share with their friends; able to generate ideas that are original and will drive traffic. Familiarity with SEO best practices and understanding what makes web content viral and sticky is important.

Candidates must understand how to (and be willing to) promote their work, are responsible for all art and fact-checking, and must be able to post directly into a CMS, without the need for an edit. The ability to work independently and demonstrate good judgment, in a fast-paced environment, is essential.

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.

Familiarity with leading online sites (newspapers, blogs, social bookmarking sites, etc.) and social media platforms, including Twitter and Facebook, is highly desired.
