THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Who We Are

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 the site's inaugural features editor, reporting to our Editorial Director, you will be integral to the success of this relaunch. You?ll work closely with the Editor in Chief, who will be managing all timely content, and our Content Outreach Manager, as well as our Producer and Staff Writer.
You will be responsible for assigning and editing all feature stories, as well as all regular franchises and columns. Specifically: You?ll sniff out big trends and assign features that are on par with longform writing from top editorial publications. You?ll work with HowAboutWe?s data scientists to figure out which stories we should be telling with data -- and you?ll work with our design team to figure out how to present that data in an interesting, shareable, press-worthy way. You?ll work with our general manager to create ?presented by? content packages for advertising partners. You?ll work with our editorial director and EIC to identify the regular franchises and columns we should be producing -- ranging from advice columns, to ?Man on the Street? interviews, to photo essays and Pinterest-friendly content, date ideas, video series, and more -- and you?ll oversee the production of them, too.
Your goal is to create smart, inspired content that
supports the HowAboutWe brand while still being real
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 a highly skilled editor, and you understand how to assign and edit a longform piece. You have 4-6 years of editorial experience. You know a lot of very smart writers, and you have a long list of writers you?d love to reach out to. You?re thoughtful and pay close attention to detail, but you?re able to edit stories quickly when necessary. You excel at project management and prioritization, and are able to juggle a variety of tasks at once. You'll be overseeing a number of freelance writers, photographers, and video producers. You?re excited about building franchises that people identity with the HowAboutWe editorial brand (and eagerly tune in for every week). 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.
