We’re looking for a gifted writer who can produce audience-targeted articles for Room5 (http://room5.trivago.fr/), our France-focused online magazine. If you can bring a creative approach and adaptable work style, we’d like to hear from you.

What you'll do:

  • Use content gathered by our collection team to create engaging, SEO-friendly, high-quality articles while meeting tight deadlines.
  • Edit the work provided to us by third parties; proofread and critically appraise your fellow writers’ pieces to ensure that they are well-targeted and meet our high standards.
  • Delve into analytics to assess the performance of the articles your team produces.
  • Use the knowledge you gain about what performs well in order to optimize future articles and rewrite old ones.
  • Moderate comments and discussion on our platform's blog.

What you'll need:

  • Native-level French and fluency in English (our company language).
  • 1-2 years' experience in creative writing or copywriting. Please include a portfolio containing your work with your application.
  • Some previous experience working in communication, journalism or social media.
  • A bachelor's degree in Communication, Journalism, Marketing or a field in which there is a heavy emphasis on writing.
  • Superb writing skills and the ability to creatively adapt your language to various audiences as you create content that grips readers and leaves them wanting more.
  • An exceptional eye for detail and a thorough knowledge of the technical and stylistic aspects of French, making you a fantastic editor and proofreader.
  • A good understanding of content management systems (e.g. WordPress).
  • At least a basic knowledge of SEO and Google Analytics.
  • Creativity coupled with a curiosity that leads you to approach tasks in a novel way, rather than simply copying established processes.
