Come join an experienced and successful group of founders – Clicker, eHarmony, etc. – and their team at this groundbreaking time. We are profitable and capitalized for growth over the next several years. Our billion dollar potential is based on a real business model, not just hope and dreams.
We are looking for an assistant editor to help curate online publications in a variety of industries as part of the editorial team. Ideally, you will be excited to learn a little about these industries and the professionals who will be our readers. You won’t know how to do the specific kinds of tasks that will be required, so we want a team-player who is excited to learn and wants to help us grow and scale the business.
Working as part of a small team, you will take on a variety of important tasks for the company. This includes:
- Advertiser and Partner Research – As we launch and operate sites, we need to find potential partners and advertisers. You will be responsible for searching for companies who are potential advertisers, finding names and emails of appropriate contacts, working in our CRM system, coordinating with Sales and Partner Development, and running reports. Research may also include telephone and email communication with potential advertisers to have them include their content on our sites/newsletters. This includes presenting the specific site, benefits of working with the site, and details of implementing the relationship. These activities make a critical part of the business because they ultimately lead to launching sites and generating revenue.
- Social Media Marketing – Our sites have a social media presence. Your role will be to help grow our reach by following and engaging with appropriate individuals, monitoring activity, finding new opportunities to leverage social media, and reporting on effectiveness.

- Webinar Research and Setup – Some of our sites incorporate webinars, and we are looking to expand that number. Your role may include finding and contacting potential webinar presenters, evaluating their fit with the editorial theme of webinar and sponsor interests, managing/ scheduling the calendar for webinars and online events, and preparing presenters by collecting, reviewing, editing, rehearsing and disseminating webinar presentation material. May also include creating and/or editing PowerPoint presentations and acting as the webinar moderator, as well as reporting post-webinar logistics and posting the recorded webinar.
- Advertising Setup – You will upload ad content into the system, set up ads in emails, test that they are working correctly, send out test emails, and fix any issues.
