Editor In Chief HowAboutWe
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Who We Are
HowAboutWe is the modern love company. We help people fall in love and stay in love.
We're a well-funded ($18.5mm), rapidly-growing startup with headquarters in Brooklyn, NY. We build breathtaking products that transform people?s lives. You can read more about us here.
We have three main products:
HowAboutWe Dating is the offline dating site. Members post date ideas, connect, and meet - offline.
HowAboutWe for Couples helps couples have wonderful experiences together. Members choose from our curated collection of one-of-a-kind experiences for two; we take care of all the booking. It?s the must-have membership for the modern couple.
The Date Report provides engaging, entertaining and enlightening content about dating and relationships.
This summer/fall, we're relaunching our blog, The Date Report. We're expanding into new verticals, creating smarter, richer, more beautiful content, and bringing on new partners. Much like our first book was "the dating book for people who don't read dating books," we want to be a content destination for people who don't read dating websites. Our areas of coverage are broad and include food, nightlife, music, movies, TV, books, fashion, beauty, politics, and technology/social media, as they relate to dating/relationships.
As Editor in Chief, reporting to our Editorial Director, you will be integral to the success of this relaunch. You will drive the daily flow of the site, assigning and editing each piece of timely content. You will oversee a small internal team -- staff writer, producer, editorial intern -- and a large number of freelance writers. (Some of these writers are on board already, but many will be recruited by you.) You will also be writing posts yourself.
You?ll be working alongside a features editor, who will assign and edit the site?s features (obviously) as well as our recurring franchises and columns. However, you?ll be responsible for guiding the team to decide which franchises, columns and features are worth pursuing. You?ll also work closely with our Content Outreach Manager.
Your goal is to create smart, inspired content that supports the HowAboutWe brand while still being real. You?ll be extremely tuned in to the news cycle, and you?ll be responsible for creating a steady, balanced flow of content that
positions The Date Report as a content destination
drives social, newsletter, and search traffic
supports our editorial partnerships with sites such as The Huffington Post, Yahoo! Shine, Glamour, and The Daily Meal.
Your Skills and Qualifications:
You?re outgoing, fearless, and have a solid network of writers. You have 6-8 years of editorial experience. You?re a skilled, fast editor and writer. You?re a news hound. You almost always have one eye on Twitter, but you still get your work done. You?re ready for a huge challenge at a small but quickly growing company. You?re able to internalize the HowAboutWe mission and you?re excited to work for a brand that?s creating content in a transparent and unexpectedly awesome way.
Competitive Salaries and Stock Options ? We pay highly competitive salaries in addition to significant stock options.
Continued Learning ? We'll pay for team members to attend conferences and get coaching to continue learning their craft
Health Insurance, Vision, and Dental ? Exceptional Health Benefits.
Ten Paid Holidays ? Our office closes for all standard paid holidays.
Fifteen PTO Days ? We encourage all team members to take vacation and recharge.
Food & Drink ? Stocked fridge, some team meals, etc.
This position is for full-time employment on-site in our office in DUMBO. We will support relocation for the right candidates.
