Senior Editorial Manager

Why join Campfire Labs?

At Campfire Labs we’re passionate about telling stories that inspire. But we’re motivated by a larger social mission. As an employee-owned benefit corporation we’re on a mission to make people’s lives measurably better. That means putting our mission, employees, and customers before profits.

We’ve pledged 50% of our profits and equity to non-profit projects that reduce poverty and prevent anthropogenic climate change. We also fund investigative journalism through our grant program.

As an employee-owned company we pay everyone on our team competitively and offer the most generous stock and profit sharing programs in any industry. Who said you can’t earn a good income and do good too?

Job description

The best brands in the world come to us to achieve things they can’t achieve on their own. We’re looking for a Senior Editorial Manager that can help us push beyond the status quo and tell stories unlike anything on the internet today.

In this role you’ll be responsible for helping our customers tell amazing stories, managing and growing our writer network, and helping launch our own publication.

Help customers tell amazing stories 

  • Help customers think about content production from a narrative-perspective and produce stories unlike anything they’ve produced before

  • Make creative briefs that give writers clear direction on the stories they produce

  • Find freelancers in our network (or outside) that have experience with the subjects at hand and onboard them to the projects 

  • Edit drafts and provide feedback on stories

Manage and grow our writer network

  • Recruit writers and improve our existing recruiting process 

  • Vet writers and ensure that only the best join our network

  • Create a standardized process that streamlines the story production process

Help us launch our own publication

  • Work with our leadership team to launch a publication that readers and customers can love

  • Come up with story ideas

  • Manage a network of freelancers and produce stories under budget

What we’re looking for

  • Minimum of 3 years in a related position — You’ve written and edited content for magazines that cover business, technology, brand, and/or design. Alternatively, you’ve been the Head of Content or Content Marketing Manager for a great brand. 

  • Exceptional writing skills — You can take rough ideas and turn them into compelling, narrative-driven stories that readers love.

  • Great communication skills — You follow up and follow through. You communicate clearly and consistently. 

  • Systems thinking — You think about how to make processes scalable, and you can streamline projects that involve multiple people and ideas. 

  • Bias towards action — “Get shit done” is your default mode. You enjoy autonomy and are self-motivated. 

  • Attention to detail — You cross your t’s and dot your i’s and hate typos (you’ve probably seen a couple on this page already).

  • Values alignment — You believe in what we’re doing and want to help us build a company that makes a real social impact.
