The Infatuation is growing quickly and we’re looking for our next full-time Boston Staff Writer. If the idea of eating in restaurants, writing about them, and helping other people discover them is exciting to you, read on.

Professional writing experience is not required, and our Staff Writers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and past experiences. In particular, we’d actually prefer that candidates not have written about food or restaurants specifically, or have close ties to the industry. You should, however, be someone who enjoys - and is good at - writing. And you’ll definitely be the person friends and family and maybe strangers come to when they need restaurant recommendations. In this role, you will be working with a small team of writers and editors as we continue our quest to become the greatest restaurant discovery tool in the world. While also, hopefully, making people laugh in the process.

You'd be perfect for this role if you:

  • Know Boston inside and out. You have strong opinions about what makes this city great.
  • Can rattle off a list of your favorite restaurants and bars, explain what you like about them, and tell us why we should drop everything and go to them right now.
  • Are familiar with our content, and have ideally used our guides and reviews to find great restaurants.
  • Probably don’t have strong ties to the restaurant industry. Cool if you’ve worked in a restaurant, less cool (for this job) if all your friends are chefs.
  • Love to write, and can do so with a sense of humor.

What you'd do in this role:

  • Eat and drink. We don’t write about any restaurants or bars that one of our writers hasn’t personally been to. This means you should be excited about the prospect of visiting restaurants on a daily basis.
  • Contribute to The Infatuation's growth in Boston by helping us cover more neighborhoods and uncover more great restaurants.
  • Write restaurant reviews and guides for The Infatuation's Boston site.
  • Write newsletters for The Infatuation Boston.
  • Write social posts for The Infatuation Boston Instagram account.
  • Contribute to The Infatuation Instagram Story Network by doing Restaurant Review Ride-Alongs.
  • Contribute to large-scale editorial projects like The Summer Guide.
  • Work with a small, but growing team.

Race & Ethnicity Definitions

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection.

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

Disabilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Blindness
  • Deafness
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Epilepsy
  • Autism
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Schizophrenia
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Bipolar disorder

  • Missing limbs or partially missing limbs
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Impairments requiring the use of a wheelchair
  • Intellectual disability (previously called mental retardation)
Reasonable Accommodation Notice

Federal law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities. Please tell us if you require a reasonable accommodation to apply for a job or to perform your job. Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
