We're looking for an Editorial Research Specialist to join our content team as we elevate our quality and our publishing capacity in 2017 and beyond. As an Editorial Research Specialist, you'll work with Staff Writers, Editors, and other members of our team to gather the data we use to fuel our reviews, and make sure it's rock-solid. This role requires a blend of research chops and tenacity in the quest for truth — plus supernatural attention to detail.

What You'll Do

  • Find and document accurate, authoritative data for multiple projects every month
  • Work with Staff Writers and Editors to surface insights and drive conclusions from that data
  • Participate in and provide perspective during hands-on testing, from taste-testing 20 popular protein bars to grilling the sales reps of a dozen home warranty providers
  • Fact check, copy edit, and QA content
  • Manage inquiries from the Reviews.com community via Zendesk
  • Collaborate with the entire content team to build resources, establish processes, and define research best practices

What It'll Take

  • A relentless researcher who can find the answer to any question
  • Unwavering standards for research, logic, and the truth — plus a sharp eye for spotting stories in a spreadsheet of data
  • Deep love for a beautifully organized data set
  • Flexibility in the face of change and bright eyes in the face of huge challenges
  • Fearless ideas on how to build a content machine that's bigger and better from the ground up

Who We Are

  • We're a quickly growing content team that will reach 30 by the end of the year
  • We're relentless in our pursuit of excellence, self-critical, and candid — and not allergic to change
  • We never say no to getting elbows-deep in a topic if it brings us closer to the truth


  • Competitive salary plus a year-end bonus 
  • 100% company-paid health insurance premiums (medical, dental, and vision) for you and your spouse
  • Flexible vacation policy 
  • In-office entertainment (PS4, shuffleboard, dartboard, TVs) and fully stocked kitchen in our Downtown Seattle office
  • An adjustable standing desk
