UrbanDaddy is a leading digital lifestyle magazine geared toward the young, urban sophisticate that covers the latest and greatest in food, nightlife, style, gear and leisure. We are currently seeking a full-time Editorial Assistant for our New York edition.

As the New York Editorial Assistant you’ll be working hand-in-hand with our New York Editorial Director to generate daily content in one of our biggest and most exciting cities. You’ll help source cutting-edge venues, develop creative content, assist in setting the editorial calendar and produce a daily article. You’ll also be working closely with the New York writer and the rest of the editorial team based in NYC.

This is a fantastic opportunity to help develop an award-winning digital lifestyle publication and help expand a growing company.

- Attend events as a UD brand ambassador and maintain relationships in the dining, nightlife, event and other lifestyle industries.

Qualifications
- Bachelor’s degree—Journalism or English preferred, but not required
- 1-2 years of experience at an established publication (*but not necessary if you have a natural talent and passion for writing with snark and the ability to learn the UrbanDaddy voice... in which case, just write us a brief cover letter that explains and displays this)
- An undying love for NYC (specifically in the areas of food, nightlife and entertainment)
- A love (and knack) for sourcing interesting and ahead-of-the-curve content
- A strong understanding of the UD voice and brand
- A sharp and witty sense of humor
- A desire to be involved with an entrepreneurial company
