Orlando Informer is offering the opportunity to be part of a team of smart, creative people who are bringing unique experiences and lifetime memories to families across the world. If you are a writer with in-depth knowledge of theme parks and superb communication skills, you can put your expertise and talents to work to help others.

Orlando Informer is a theme-park vacation-planning company founded in 2011. Every year, we help millions of people plan a better vacation to Orlando’s biggest tourist destinations with savings, experiences, and advice.

We’re looking to add vacation-planning writers to our staff who have an in-depth and unrivaled knowledge of Orlando’s theme parks and resorts, inside and out, from the parks to the hotels and everything in between. These writers’ domain will exist solely in the nitty-gritty details of how the resorts operate and how its guests can have the best possible experiences there.

Orlando Informer is a small, nimble, and remote-first company, so it’s likely you’ll get experience across many areas of our business. With this in mind, our writers tend to focus on one of two areas:

  • assist in the managing, revising, and updating of our unparalleled vacation planning pages, which consists of over 300 detailed pages on everything from the individual attractions and restaurants to packing and flight guides.  In addition, you will be expected to help in the creation of new pages and related content and in the regular excursion to the property in order to take photographs and confirm various details, both large and small.
  • assist in the creation of new blog posts that comprehensively cover the latest theme-park news, often in a time-sensitive environment. And above and beyond the news, you’ll help pen thorough blog posts that is foundational to Orlando Informer’s mission of helping guests have a better vacation. Sometimes this means acting as our boots-on-the-ground resource in the theme parks.

You will be provided with competitive compensation.
