Content: Commerce Editor
Mashable is looking for a Commerce Editor to build and lead a new group within the organization that finds the best deals and products across technology, entertainment and culture, and uses cross-platform storytelling to share them with our audience.
The ideal candidate will be a leader who has built and run a commerce operation for a digital media brand. The editor should have a passion for culture, entertainment and technology, be conversational writer who is confident and careful when reviewing products, and have the ability to describe the pros and cons of any given item with conviction.
