Job Requirements FierceMarkets, one of the fastest-growing digital publishers in B-to-B media, is seeking a smart, savvy entrepreneurial and experienced Editor-in-Chief to lead our fast-growing Enterprise IT publishing group.

At a minimum, the successful candidate will have proven journalistic experience within the Enterprise IT sector (and perhaps also as an IT worker), demonstrable working knowledge of online publishing metrics, a proven ability to boost web traffic (without resorting to cheap “click bait” strategies), web content management systems, email newsletter management platforms (such as Silverpop or other high-end email programs). Most importantly, we are seeking a candidate who has extensive experience managing a growing editorial staff and a team of freelancers.

We are located in Washington, DC, but this can be a “work from home” opportunity for the right candidate.

DAILY TASKS INCLUDE:
• Editorial & Content Development
o Development of editorial calendars
o Development of special reports/features, webinars and eBooks
o Ensuring quality control among freelancers and full time staff
• Editorial Leadership, Management & Strategy
o Industry relations, including public speaking and travel to major IT conferences/events
o Acting as the “Public Face” of the FierceMarkets Enterprise IT publishing group
o Conduct regular editorial strategy meetings
o Act as a mentor for direct reports within the editorial staff
• Company Leadership & Presence
o Actively seek new ways to help the company achieve goals and vision
o Provide strategic input that helps to grow the business
o Embrace an entrepreneurial mindset and take ownership responsibility for your department

MUST-HAVE REQUIREMENTS:
• 10 years digital media experience, plus additional experience working in the B-to-B publishing sector. While print publishing experience is of interest, the successful candidate must have deep knowledge of and experience within digital publishing.
• The ability to work within a fast-paced, entrepreneurial, start-up environment.
• Experience managing a team of writers and freelancers
• An understanding of social media. Specifically, how to use it appropriately for the dual benefit of our readers and FierceMarkets’ audience-building initiatives.
About Our Company FierceMarkets, a leader in B2B e-media, helps business marketers reach targeted decision-makers through our portfolio of email newsletters, websites, webinars, and live events focusing on the telecom, life sciences, healthcare, IT, and finance industries.
