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.

oDevelopment of special reports/features, webinars and eBooks
oEnsuring quality control among freelancers and full time staff
•Editorial Leadership, Management & Strategy
oIndustry relations, including public speaking and travel to major IT conferences/events
oActing as the “Public Face” of the FierceMarkets Enterprise IT publishing group
oConduct regular editorial strategy meetings
oAct as a mentor for direct reports within the editorial staff
•Company Leadership & Presence
oActively seek new ways to help the company achieve goals and vision
oProvide strategic input that helps to grow the business
oEmbrace 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.
