We’re obsessed with the quality of our blog and making sure each post provides our readers with all the information they need (rather than simply pumping out endless, low-quality blog posts). We’re truly invested in creating content that leaves our audience amazed by how helpful each blog post is.

The mission of the Managing Editor is to manage production and publishing of blog posts from start to finish on the GoSite blog. The Managing Editor will be responsible for upholding quality in all of our blog posts, ensuring that each post completely and thoroughly answers the questions our audience has. 

The Managing Editor will primarily work with writers and content strategist in order to produce our blog content of guides, how-to articles, and other resources across a variety of topics related to small businesses, including:

  • Payment processing
  • Mobile payments
  • Customer relationship management (CRM)
  • Building a website
  • Messaging/Live chat with customers
  • Local search marketing
  • Online Reviews
  • Online booking and reservations
  • Email marketing, and more.

Responsibilities:

  • Edit up to 40 800 to 1,200-word posts per month (or some equivalent as some assignments will be longer “guides”) (note: we may bring on additional editors based on need as we scale production).
  • Take assignments from Content Strategist and craft into assignments briefs
  • Work closely with team of 3-5 freelance writers through publishing process, 
  • Provide feedback and coaching as well as propose content edits to writers for each blog post, as necessary
  • Ensure each article is factually correct, free of spelling and grammar errors, optimized for SEO, and overall a helpful resource to the GoSite audience
  • Complete publishing process on the HubSpot platform
