Do you love food? Do you enjoy telling stories about food that also reveal the stories of people and communities? Do you get overjoyed when you discover a gem of a restaurant in an unexpected place?

The Seattle Times, a Pulitzer Prize-winning news company, is actively seeking a part-time Food Writer to join our food and drinks coverage team. We pride ourselves on finding interesting, revealing stories within the food world that help us understand how food fits into and tell us about our Northwest communities. You should have a discerning palate, familiarity with a wide variety of different cuisines, an innate curiosity and an appetite for adventurous eating. A demonstrated commitment to communicating the full glory and gamut of food-related stories is critical — including deliciousness, hunger, fun, struggle, “ewww” and more. This part-time role will focus on finding and writing about restaurants in the neighborhoods surrounding the city of Seattle — so go north, south, east and west and report back to help readers discover new, tasty places to eat.
