A trusted and beloved name in the “home” vertical needs a first-rate editor to manage its website as the company boosts its already significant digital footprint. Light on tech and heavy on content, this is a writerly/curatorial job, especially perfect for someone with a thing for home repair, design and improvement.
Heading up a small team, you’ll be the main gatekeeper when it comes to what content appears on the website. You’ll work closely with digital, editorial and marketing to develop a digital-content strategy, and you’ll assign, write, edit and package material for the website. Much of it will be original; some will come from the company’s television and magazine content; about a ton of it will be video. You’ll manage the home page, landing pages, and the daily, weekly and monthly publishing calendar.
Bigger-picture, you’ll be flexing your creative muscles, thinking promotionally about what you can do with the assets at your disposal, what you can make that’s new and fun, how you can move legacy assets forward, how you can monetize content. You’ll do this largely at your own initiative, with minimal hand-holding – scary for the wrong kind of applicant; music to the ears of someone with the right stuff.
Hired Gun Profile
You have three to five years of digital content experience and a Bachelor’s in journalism or the like. You’ve got a nifty portfolio of compelling work you’ve done, at least some of which hits pretty close to home repair (Didja get that?). You’re completely comfortable working with a CMS (especially Drupal).
You do well in a fast-paced environment, you’re a gifted multitasker, and you adjust quickly to changing circumstances. Furthermore, you’re a roll-up-your-sleeves type who’s comfortable in a hybrid supervisory/hands-on role.
While this is a web gig, bear in mind that the company is cross-platform, so show us things you’ve done along those lines.
With flexibility and creative agency galore, this is a dream job for a digital media pro with a flair for home-related content.
