  • Collaborate with product, audience and business managers to ensure reach, engagement and revenue goals are met.
  • Maintain an unequivocal commitment to accuracy, fairness and ethics.
  • Demonstrate a passion and ability to learn new products, techniques and tools to create compelling and groundbreaking products.

Job Requirements

  • 5+ years journalism experience, preferably including at least three years covering a consumer health beat.
  • Successful track record of managing freelancers, budget allocation, and hitting deadlines.
  • 2+ years publishing within a CMS, optimizing images and SEO, and writing compelling headlines. Experience with WordPress a plus.
  • Understanding of how to frame content geared toward people over 50.
  • Familiarity with behavioral analytics (i.e., Google Analytics), gleaning insights and putting them into action.
  • Ability to collaborate in a small team setting with an “all hands-on deck” attitude and flexibility.
  • Exceptional interpersonal, verbal and written communication skills.

  • Exceptional attention to detail.
  • An audience-focused mindset, curiosity and willingness to try new approaches, and a commitment to contributing to an inclusive work environment.
