Hearst Magazines' Enthusiast Group is looking for an automotive-obsessed product journalist to join our Test Team and elevate Popular Mechanic's auto-related reviews, awards packages, maintenance pieces, and news stories.

You will be expected to research, evaluate, test, and recommend vehicles and accessories across categories, creating content that informs our PopMech Pro audience as well as auto enthusiasts and first-time car buyers.
The position requires you to use data insights, product research, industry contacts, and enthusiasm for automobiles and related categories to produce high-quality, insightful reviews. Our product journalism aims to inspire trust in our readers; you will balance creating rigorously tested reviews with authoritative recommendations, helpful service pieces, print packages, and roundups on tight deadlines.
The ideal candidate will have proven expertise and a desire to share her/his passion with PopMech's 15 million monthly readers. You will be comfortable with digital-publishing tools, search optimization, and using data insights to create successful content. Our audience is highly capable and immensely curious. You should be confident in producing highly accurate and trustworthy reviews that inform, inspire, empower, and equip them to do more and live better.
This person will be part of the Enthusiast Group Test Team in Easton, Pennsylvania, and will have the opportunity to write for our other brands: Runner's World, Bicycling, and Best Products.
