About the Role

The Spruce is looking for a Visual Update Editor with strong experience in a creative role working for a digital publication. 

We are looking for a digitally savvy content enthusiast with deep knowledge of, and passion for, food and cooking, who is eager to drive the ongoing evolution and growth of one of the biggest food sites on the web. The visual editor will work with The Spruce Eats team to enforce the brand’s visual voice, and to improve user experience to ultimately grow traffic, audience engagement, and revenue. This is a remote position that requires a time commitment of 20 hours per week.


About Your Contributions 

  • Help establish The Spruce Eats visual voice across the website
  • Perform photo research and updates across existing content, which can range from recipes and how-to’s to round-ups and cooking guides
  • Review visual assets for Spruce Eats for accuracy, style, and relevance


About You

  • 3+ years experience working in a visual role for a digital publisher with relevant experience in selecting food and cooking imagery
  • Detail-oriented, deadline-focused, and impeccably organized
  • Able to work independently and closely follow project instructions
  • You’d love to spend hours searching for the perfect photo, but can also move quickly to perform photo research and make a decision
  • Well-versed in stock photo sites as Getty, Stocksy, and Twenty20
  • Passionate about food, knowledgeable and insatiably curious about ingredients, dishes, cuisines techniques and eager to share your knowledge of the world. You prefer to DIY rather than buy, you probably choose vacations based on what you will eat there, you’ve cooked your way through magazines and books, and are often the go-to person in your friend group for food questions
