Freelance Writer

Job Details

At betterpet.com, we help people make smarter, healthier decisions for their pets. Our mission is to provide clear, medically sound advice distinguished by a focus on responsible pet parenting.

We are currently seeking freelance writers with research chops to help us craft the most practical, relevant, and scientifically backed content — articles, features, guides, etc. — for over 4 million readers.

Our articles are usually between 1,000-3,000 words. Our standard rate starts at $30/hour per article, but if an article is research heavy or longer than normal, we offer a higher rate. Ideal candidates have a broad range of pet health care expertise, ability to conduct thorough research, and can take on 1-3 writing assignments per week

Responsibilities

  • Writing articles from an outline, first draft, to final draft.
  • Conducting thorough research to provide insightful and fact-based articles that are actually fun to read.
  • Collaborating with our team of licensed veterinarians and EiC to make sure that we share information and product recommendations that are in the best interest of both pets and their owners.

About you

  • You care deeply about content organization and have strong research abilities — some assignments cover complex medical conditions, symptoms, and treatments. 
  • You have experience writing in the pet space (specifically around dogs and cats).
  • Bandwidth to complete an outline and first draft within a week of the start date.
  • You’re comfortable learning Google Docs, Asana, and Slack (we will train you).
