It’s an amazing time to be a part of our company as we’re shaping the future of how we work and how we connect deeply with the world.

About the Role / Why This Position Rocks

We’re seeking a whip-smart, creative, and driven senior editor to join our editorial team.

In this role, you’ll have the opportunity to partner with just about every major consumer health and wellness brand in a way that’s not only innovative but also brand first and all about building trust. Through that, you'll be instrumental in our efforts to bring Greatist's awesome content and important message to many more millions of people.

  • Project-manage tentpole programs and branded content campaigns from ideation to execution by collaborating across departments, brainstorming photo/visual elements, creating and tracking deadlines, editing and building within the CMS, and communicating with the brand partnerships team.
  • Work closely with the edit and digital marketing teams to identify stories, topics, and approaches that resonate most with Greatist’s readers—and help communicate those learnings to brand partners.
  • Work closely with the video team to develop video concepts for brand partners and larger editorial initiatives.
