Job: Content Manager/Editor, The Fetch, New York

photoThe Fetch is a global media tech startup that recently relocated its HQ to NY. The Fetch focuses on solving professional event discovery – its beta is a much-loved weekly email digest. Originating out of Melbourne, Australia, the site now covers leading cities such as NYC, San Francisco, London, Berlin and Sydney with Los Angeles, Paris, Singapore and others on the waiting list.

We’re looking for a New York-based editor and content manager to come work with us!

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a professional writer/editor/content strategist/blogger/curator to lead and own content at a meaningful startup. 

We’re looking for someone who:

  • A global citizen plugged into trends, capable of curating the zeitgeist
  • Works quickly – balancing the line between perfection and getting stuff done
  • Knows why sites like Medium, Svbtle, Brain Pickings, Fast Company, Quibb, Clarity and Buffer rock
  • Is social media and tech-literate (you’ll know WordPress like the back of your hand as well as basic HTML)
  • Has read and eaten The Elements of Style for breakfast
  • Has amazing ambient awareness and a high emotional IQ (you’re committed, responsible and mature)
  • Is self-sufficient (introverts welcome!) with an insane ability to focus
  • Has OMG-worthy organisation and administrative skills
  • Says “I’m on it” and “can do” frequently (you love helping people)
  • Has the ability to speak their mind and hold their own (especially when being pulled in multiple directions)
  • Can work flexible (smart rather than long) hours – especially Sundays

Stuff you’ll be responsible for:

  • Engagement metrics (the meaningful kind) on our content, and increasing these month/month
  • Creating high-quality and shareable content that doesn’t add to the noise
  • Managing and sub-editing content posted on our ever-growing blog
  • Editing of the weekly Fetches according to in-house style and guidelines
  • Coming up with and executing kick-ass content calendars
  • Liaising and assisting our network of brilliant curators
  • Writing guest posts for other sites
  • Marketing and seeding of content
  • Sharing and scheduling of social media updates
  • Being a responsive and communicative email ninja
  • Assisting the founder

You’ll get:

  • A competitive salary relevant to your experience plus equity in the company once full time
  • To be a part of a team obsessed with great culture, community, cities and changing how people work
  • To build an even-more amazing content portfolio, professional network and solid profile
  • To attend all the events you could ever want
  • Training and mentorship from some of the industry’s best content, social media and community players
  • Flexible work location (work from our HQ, home, a coworking space or while you travel)
  • Once a week lunches and walking meetings in Central Park
  • The opportunity to connect with inspirational people around the globe

This paid position involves a three-month part-time contract (let’s ‘date’ first!) before moving full time. 

Please email jobs@thefetch.com as soon as you can including the following:

  • Links to your Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and blog profiles; Examples of your writing and editing, how you would seed a piece of content and three example headlines of content you would publish on The Fetch. Why you want to work at The Fetch; Current location and availability; and your brief story so far. We don’t want or need your resume.

Applications will be reviewed as soon as they come in and we’re looking for an immediate start.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Featured job: Chief Commercialization Officer, Gizmag — January 19, 2013

Featured job: Chief Commercialization Officer, Gizmag

We have an exciting new role here on The Fetch blog. It’s for a Chief Commercialization Office for Gizmag. The role is a remote one, helping the popular blog build their already-profitable business. More information is included below –>

gizmag-logo-xlrg

Gizmag has been online for over a decade, with a global audience of over 3.5 million people per month making them one of the most widely read independent technology publications on the web.

They cover science, technology and innovation of all forms, not the politics or the money behind it, aiming to inspire their readers, not ridicule the latest product or company failure.

They’re currently profitable and not looking for an exit, instead focusing on building a lasting global brand.

The rapid growth means they cannot continue to rely on third parties to sell advertising on their behalf. You’ll be the first employee to focus solely on generating revenue.

In addition to selling, you’ll be helping with commercial strategy, growing the sales team, working with their developers to create new custom ad solutions, and anything else that can add value to our journalism. You’ll need to be the kind of person who is as good at getting things done as they are at recognising what needs to be done.

This is a telecommuting role (it is 2013, right?) so only those of you comfortable reacquainting yourself with tracksuits and bathrobes should apply.

To apply, send a cover letter and CV to jobs@gizmag.com.
