Ogden, UT

Purch, one of the nation’s leading digital media companies, is looking for a talented writer who will join our team of business product and service reviewers in Ogden or Lehi, Utah. Our ideal candidate will have a strong writing background (in any field) and likes to learn new things all the time. (You really do like to learn new things!) This writer will work with TopTenReviews to create researched reviews and buying guides that can take a month or more to research, test and write. You must be comfortable digging in and learning about products and services you may or may not know anything about.

We don’t care how much work experience you’ve had, but this is definitely an early career position and will pay accordingly (though we are open to more seasoned writers who are looking for a change).

  • Knowledge in business areas is a plus.
  • Prior experience with Microsoft Office and Excel needed.
  • This role requires a reporter who can think like a detective, an entrepreneur and a guidance counselor. That’s because our readers rely on us to help them start and grow their businesses and make important buying decisions.
  • Most importantly, you have the ability to put yourself in the shoes of our readers and imagine what you would want to know if you were starting your own business.
  • You like to work with others who might think differently than you, are open to new ideas and can change course as our needs shift.
  • You won’t be offended if your work is heavily edited or sent back for multiple revisions.
  • You also must be comfortable working “undercover” by calling businesses as if you were a small business owner.

Digital media is in an ever-changing business and our approach to covering business issues, products and services will continue to evolve and change over time. You must be excited about solving problems, creating new ways to work and discovering new approaches to reporting. Your greatest talent is your ability to change, learn and grow.

In lieu of a cover letter, write us a short (3 to 4 paragraph) review of a product you already own. It could be anything – your razor, your bicycle, your kid’s car seat. Just give us a chance to see how you write when you’re writing about a product for an audience that wants to know more.
