Elizabeth Weingarten reports on the Groupon editorial team:
Forty percent of Groupon's writers have prior journalism experience, 70 percent were creative writers and 20 percent wrote marketing or business copy. As of this writing, there are 59 writers, 16 editors, 15 image designers, 24 fact-checkers, 11 copy editors and four editorial recruiters. They've hired 40 writers in the last six months.
"We have this insatiable need for writers," Managing Editor Brandon Copple said. And if you're hired as a writer at Groupon, you will be writing. All day long. Writers churn out anywhere from six to ten blurbs each day.
