•Increase the readership of the newsletter and traffic to the site
•Work with the sales team to monetize it via nontraditional ad formats
•Develop products to sell to existing sponsor base including original / featured content
•Have a next generation journalistic attitude
•Possess some editorial swagger and cultivate a voice that will capture attention, readership and a following
•Understand the separation between editorial and advertising and blur the lines
•Be a team player and be able to manage, attract and nurture the best and the brightest editorial staff
•Be a self-starter who comes to management with ideas versus having to be managed
•Help with conference programming and speaker briefing

•Production Issues:
•In-depth knowledge of producing in the WordPress environment
•Hands-on capability to manage stock and story art sourcing & preparation, including knowledge of Photoshop
•An understanding of native advertising, 3rd party ad serving management & traditional advertising integration.

•These are mandatory stills. If you don’t have them, it won’t be a good fit.
