We are a company specializing in publications for the banking, credit union and mortgage sectors. Sounds boring. But what does that mean? It means we look at stories about money and power. It means we look at strategies to bring new technologies to consumers. And it means, more than anything, that we write and plan for readers who are people first, business leaders second. It means we try to be smart, not boring. It means that we approach our topics fearlessly and honestly. It means our mission is to bring our readers something that makes them sit back and think about new opportunities, or about fixing broken approaches. Don't think, "The Journal of Accountancy." Think, "Rolling Stone" for people who are passionate about loans rather than licks.
At the end of the day, it's fun. Because if we're doing our job right, it means we're bringing interesting new stuff to the attention of smart people. And we do it without being stuffy, without being swamped in jargon, without corporate handcuffs.
Now we're looking for an executive editor to lead our print and digital publications, as well as be a part of our planning for our branded specialty offerings. The editor should understand that we are writing for a sophisticated audience, not a consumer one. Previous business reporting or editing is helpful, but not required. What's critical is a willingness to learn and an ability to put yourself in the reader's place in order to craft the highest quality content.
We offer a small but comfortable and friendly work environment. A $55,000 base salary, coupled with profit sharing of about $10,000 or more, should result in annual compensation of $65K-$75K. We offer fully paid company health insurance and retirement benefits.
Successful candidates will be able to tell a great story. So this is where you start. Tell us a great story about why you're the one for this post. Yes, we want to see your resume, but resumes submitted alone will not be opened. If you can't compel us to look at you, how will you compel readers to look at a publication you're editing?
