Prose Media (prosemedia.com) is a fast-growing content marketing agency for brands. We're looking for a tech-savvy, self-motivated, resourceful professional to join our dynamic startup team -- either on a full-time, part-time, or contract basis.

As an editorial account manager -- an editor with account and project management responsibilities -- you'll edit custom content, assemble and oversee teams of freelance writers, and work closely with clients to ensure successful content marketing campaigns.

You should be a strong editor, obsessed with crafting and refining clean copy under tight deadlines—and also a diligent project manager, adept at juggling multiple rapid-fire projects at once while maintaining strict organization and a sense of calm. Being tech-savvy is essential, since you'll be working with an array of apps, software platforms, email extensions, and cloud-based project management tools.

Just as importantly, you should be able to manage clients and projects with a high degree of autonomy, adept at tackling tasks and problems head-on without formal instructions -- and without losing your cool. As a bootstrapped startup, a highly flexible and resourceful mindset is crucial, as is an "all-in" mentality.

Our small team of six editors works from a home office on Bleecker Street, near NYU. Join us on the fast-paced “ground floor” and help us build something special.

To apply, please submit a resume, cover letter, and writing or editing sample (or a portfolio link). Please be sure to indicate any minimum salary requirements.
