You will work directly with our Managing Editor, medical reviewers, and SEO specialists to build an enduring library of high-quality, engaging health-related content that is accessible to millions of readers each month.
Who are you? That's a great question. You’re a hard-working, detail-oriented editor who wants to help people live better lives by shaping articles that are engaging, empathetic, clear, complete, and underpinned by rigorous medical research.

    • Recruit freelance contributors and maintain those relationships, managing all aspects of the onboarding process.
    • Leverage quantitative SEO tools while balancing this valuable data with the qualitative “why” of things.
    • Edit and tweak articles as needed to maximize traffic acquisition potential and user engagement.
    • Supplement submissions from our writers as needed to ensure our content is complete, fluid, and engaging.
    • Manage upload of content into website CMS, ensuring technical components (such as internal links) are accounted for, and website information architecture is well maintained.

What You Bring to the Team:

    • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent 
    • 2-4 years of experience editing for a large medical publication or online medical resource
    • Existing relationships with star journalists with extensive experience writing about health, medicine, and science for a general audience 
    • Working understanding of content management systems (WordPress, Joomla, etc.)
    • Excellent project management skills, you are natural when it comes to balancing multiple parallel workflows
    • Comfortable collaborating cross-functionally in a fast-paced environment
    • You are hard-working, get along well with others, and don’t mind dad jokes

Bonus Points:

    • Familiarity with web analytics platforms, such as Google Analytics, Omniture, etc.
    • Prior experience with medical, legal, and regulatory review processes
    • Deep understanding of SEO, in particular, content ranking factors

Benefits + Perks:
