Cinema Blend seeks an experienced and dynamic movie geek to head up Movies section as we leap forward. Movies Editor means being in charge of all things movie related in our operation. You'd report directly to our Managing Editor and team-up with our existing Movies Editor, Eric Eisenberg, to steer a team of experienced, talented full-timers and freelancers in creating amazing and interesting movie-related content while leading coverage of breaking movie news as it happens. We’d expect you to help develop up and coming writers, improving the work of every writer on the site. Make everyone around you better!

To succeed you must be creative and motivated; an epic editor and a top-notch writer who doesn't shy away from controversy; a skilled manager with the ability to motivate others. Organizational and time management super-powers are essential. Gigawatts of creativity are a must.

We're looking for someone who isn't afraid to court controversy and thrives on being the first and the best. An industry insider with an intimate knowledge of movies and a rolodex as big as the collection of random knowledge inside their head.

You'll have to be willing and able to work on your own, juggling multiple projects in an intense, deadline-oriented environment. This is a full-time position with a competitive salary, but Cinema Blend exists proudly in the new media world. We aren't locked down in a stuffy office. Our team is scattered across the country in New York, LA, Portland and more. You'll be managing our team long-distance from the comfort of your own home.

We're looking for someone with creativity and vision, the kind of person who sees the big picture and doesn't shy away from rolling up their sleeves and getting things done. Cinema Blend needs a hard-working talent with big ideas as big as our own. If that's you get the ball rolling by sending us your resume and an amazing pitch. Blow our minds with your big ideas and become a permanent part our future.

A boring, itemized list of necessary skills and experience follows. Note, this is not a complete list, it's just a good starter:
  • You must have at least 2 years of experience as an editor in the online movie reporting industry.
  • Have contacts in the movie industry. For instance, if you don't already know how something basic like how to contact the PR department at Warner Bros., you should not apply.
  • We're primarily looking for someone already in New York City, but if you're willing to relocate and you're amazing, we might consider you.
  • We particularly need someone with experience and knowledge of modern, geek film culture. Know your superheroes and your Star Wars!
  • Know how to use Adobe Photoshop on a basic level.
  • Have a basic understanding of HTML formatting.
  • Have a basic understanding of how to use Facebook and Twitter.


    Blow our minds with your big ideas for pushing Cinema Blend to even greater heights.

    Please include salary requirements, with your application.
