Our company, Endemic, INC currently operates http://nerdywithchildren.com/ and we have plans to launch a new site in the next few months. We're looking for a Digital Content Editor to join our team (http://nerdywithchildren.com/about).
We're looking for a person who can help us build Endemic, INC into the superior powerhouse that we know it can become. Currently, we are a team of two co-founders, a couple interns, and a handful of freelance writers. We launched Nerdy With Children in August 2012 and are now planning to launch Nerdy With Pets. The co-founders are not editors and we need someone to step into this role and take the reins of our editorial dept with a long term commitment in mind. As we’re located in the U.S., this position is only open to U.S. and Canadian residents for timezone reasons because you will be working remotely.
Managing our team of freelance writers.
Editing, writing, publishing quality content that our audience will fall in love with.
Curating products and developing story ideas that will be featured.
Assisting us in content strategization.
Managing Editorial Interns
Helping us come up with awesome ideas.
Step 1: A degree from a University in Journalism or Communications.
Step 2: At least three to five years experience in an editing position. Preferably in the online publishing industry.
Step 3: You're a passionate nerdy-geeky person who would love to write about kids and pets. If you dream of attending ToyFair, making quilts, meeting Nathan Fillion, or searching Etsy for cute dog sweaters then we want to talk to you. (Our next website will focus on pet products)
Step 4: You have some knowledge of Wordpress, HTML, basic CSS, social media and a fundamental understanding of SEO. Basic graphic design skills are a big plus, but not required.
As a bootstrapped startup we are looking for a person who is willing to take on this responsibility in exchange for equity (negotiable) rather than salary. Monetary compensation in addition to equity is absolutely possible once things progress, but for now we are doing this without outside investment and are therefore looking for someone who is interested in owning a piece of the business in exchange for their involvement.
