We are looking for a sharp editor who’s ready to take on growing a blog that already gets hundreds of thousands of visits per month. This is an exciting role for someone who has already worked their way up the ranks, writing engaging content, and managing and coaching writers. The goal is to drive editorial/content strategy and run experiments to identify high impact initiatives to support high level business objectives.
We use our aThemes blog to promote our own products (WordPress themes), but it also generates a significant amount of affiliate revenue. We believe it has a lot of potential and are investing in building our content department out as its own business unit.
Our aim is for our blog to be one of the top blogs in the WordPress space. And we need you to lead that charge.
Don’t worry, you won’t be alone. You’ll work closely with the CEO and will have a talented team of freelance writers, a technical editor, SEO specialist and a designer to help you. Plus you will have the ability to recruit more writers as the blog grows.
Bonus points if you have experience with technical content and/or doing content outreach.
There are three overarching goals for this role:
1. Increase organic blog traffic
2. Increase affiliate revenue earned through the blog
3. Consistently update and publish high quality content to position the aThemes blog as a top blog in the WordPress space
You’ll share your vision and execution plan with the CEO for how to accomplish these goals.
You’ll lead the following three areas:
We are ideally looking for someone who can commit 20 hours a week to start, with the opportunity to grow to a full-time role, depending on your skill set and our needs.
You can live anywhere in the world but we ask that at least 4 hours of your working hours overlap with the 9am-5pm CET (Central European Time) workday so you can interact with the rest of the team.
Do you want to join our team as our new Head of Content? Then we'd love to hear about you!
