The job:

The Test Kitchen Professional, Time Inc. will work with the Southern Living team to create meaningful recipe content for a signature Southern lifestyle brand with an audience of more than 14 million. This is a key role for a creative self-starter excited to join a brand with massive reach and a strong, dedicated following.

You will:

  • Source ingredients, prepare food, test and repeat
  • Pitch stories, recipe lineups, and food content to editors; working with them to develop and package story elements – both for the magazine, online and across social and video   
  • Write thoughtful how-tos, recipe head notes and captions to enhance reader service and clarity of recipe technique and general cooking  
  • Represent Southern Living at industry events, plus reader outreach programs and community events

You are:

  • Experienced: You have a BS or BA, a culinary degree, or extensive professional experience, plus a food science or sensory background. Baking experience is a plus.
  • Connected: You have a history of getting to know your audience deeply – their taste, aesthetic and cooking habits – and a record of staying true to that audience. You know when to push comfort zones and when to stay true to tradition.
  • A lifelong learner: The only kind of world that scares you is one where you can’t keep growing. You’re a stellar cook who thinks like an entrepreneur; it’s in your DNA to try new things, learn new skills, and grow in your career.
  • Collaborative: You’re energized by collaborative environments and have teaching experience – officially, or unofficially by leading teams. People respond to your open, communicative style and your genuine interest in the world around you.
