Are you obsessed with Boston’s restaurant scene, from the buzzy new hot spots to the lovable stalwarts? Are you a journalist eager to dive into the ins and outs of the restaurant industry, including openings, chef news, and beyond? Are you a rare enthusiast of attending public hearings, sifting through legal documents, and cold-calling people for quotes? Do you live in Boston proper and know the city’s neighborhoods inside and out?
The Eater Boston team is looking for a Boston proper-based reporter to add to our crew, regularly contributing news stories, features, maps, and more with a focus on Boston proper. (Please note that Eater Boston does not do restaurant reviews; this is not a critic position.)
This is a freelance, remote position — you can work from your couch or your favorite coffee shops, and sometimes we’ll join you at those coffee shops — but you should be based right in Boston and ready to quickly head out to conduct interviews and shoot photographs around the city.
The time commitment and schedule are somewhat flexible, but you will definitely need to have some daytime, weekday availability. (This position is not suitable for someone who is in a full-time, 9-to-5 position.)
If you’re interested, please send a short email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Eater Boston Reporter” telling us about yourself and why you’re the best fit for this position. Please include links to published stories and photography, as well as links to any social media accounts you think we should see. Also, tell us a little bit about one or two restaurants in your neighborhood that you think Eater hasn’t covered enough. We look forward to hearing from you.
