TPG is growing! Right now, we’re looking to add writers and editors with extensive loyalty program and credit card knowledge. Note: You must have a strong knowledge of most points and miles programs, including domestic and international frequent flyer programs, hotel programs and credit card programs. You’ll be writing or editing features like this and this, with little guidance from the rest of the team. Please read this entire post before submitting.
We pay very well but we’re very selective about who we bring on board — right now, we’re only looking for potential employees and contributors with significant experience. Note that while you don’t need to have formal writing experience to apply as a contributor, you do need to be able to write intelligently and creatively. And because we like to have fun at TPG, we’re going to shake things up a bit with this application process(
