ASSISTANT EDITOR

 InvestorPlace.com is looking for an Assistant Editor who is a digital native. The ideal candidate is as interested in website analytics and reader engagement as she is with creating compelling and error-free articles.

What you’ll do for us at first: You’ll edit and publish eight or more articles a day about the stock market and investing in our WordPress CMS, with particular attention to our SEO strategy. You also will be asked occasionally send email alerts to our readers using in-house broadcast tools. You’ll be an important member of our editing team that publishes roughly fifty articles a day that we source from freelance writers.

What you’ll do for us later: After you get comfortable with our workflow, you’ll start testing your own ideas to make us better. This could include experimenting with new areas of content, trying a new style of headline or redesigning our emails to try and increase click-throughs. We’ll demand you measure success with data, but will encourage you to experiment in ways that will teach you new skills and give us new insights into our readers.

What we’ll do for you: We are an ambitious and growing company, and have a track record of promoting from within. But wherever your career takes you, InvestorPlace.com will teach you digital media skills that will help you shine. We’ll also give you a valuable education in money and markets, and how to maximize your personal finances. We also have a ping-pong table, bagels on Wednesdays and other perks to brighten up the workweek.

Familiarity with stock market terminology is a big plus, but certainly not a prerequisite (most people don’t’ know a stock from a bond when they arrive here). Preference will be given to candidates with a year or two of digital media experience, but recent grads with a good work ethic and intellectual curiosity are also encouraged to apply.

To apply, please submit a resume and cover letter to [email protected]. Please reference job code:  AE.AT.IP

MANAGING EDITOR AND HEAD OF AUDIENCE DEVELOPMENT

We’re looking for a data-driven leader who can do it all – keep our content pertinent and timely for our audience, crunch website analytics, herd freelancers, and grow and develop your writing and editing team.

This job—like all digital media—is as much about data and analytics as it is about crafting story ideas.  We operate at high volume, and need a quick-thinking leader who can make sure we’re deploying our resources optimally.

That may sound like a lot, and it is … but you’ll get plenty in return. That includes a very competitive salary and benefits, but also a ton of professional development in digital media and the autonomy to run your editorial team as you see fit (as long as it keeps the HR team happy).

And to be clear, our website is no small thing. We already have a crack team of five editors and about twenty freelance writers in place, and we produce at least fifty stories each trading day.

Check out our growth (if you’re the right candidate for this job, you’ll know where to go to research us.)  And yes, the growth is real … we avoid the fake traffic shenanigans so prevalent in digital media.

You’ll report directly to the general manager, who would like nothing more than to get out of your way while you and your editorial team run the show. We pride ourselves on experimentation and challenging growth opportunities, and this is the ideal chance for a budding digital editor to hone digital media skills that will last a lifetime.

Preference will be given to candidates with knowledge of the stock market, and to candidates with at least five years’ experience in digital publishing. That said, we are forward-thinking and experimental and welcome all candidates who think they can run a website like ours.

We have partnerships with major sites like Yahoo!, MarketWatch, MSN and Nasdaq, and operate as a storefront for over 30 premium subscription services, as part of a larger, established (and profitable!) publishing company.

In other words, if you want the feel of a start-up within an established media company that can provide the resources to help you succeed … this is it.
