A quick note to say: Cup of Jo is hiring! We’re looking for an editorial assistant. This is a full-time position based in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. Here are the details…
Cup of Jo is a media company centered around our award-winning women’s lifestyle site. We cover fashion, beauty, design, culture, travel, food, relationships and parenting. We have a global community of more than 1 million unique readers per month — bright, funny women, who are deeply engaged with the site. Our team members are creative and collaborative. Cup of Jo has top-tier partners and a wide-ranging impact, and yet our small team atmosphere allows us to be nimble, take ownership of new projects and move quickly in fun directions. We always strive to be inclusive and authentic. As Olive Kitteridge said, “There’s no such thing as a simple life.”
About the role:
We’re looking for a smart, energetic editorial assistant to join our team of editors. You will collaborate with our editors to bring story ideas to life across multiple channels. You’ll meet with our team to brainstorm fresh and compelling post ideas, and conduct research and scout candidates for our series (house tours, beauty uniforms, weeks of outfits). You’ll write short posts and captions. You’ll also help with art direction by assisting on photo shoots and with photo scouting. You’ll communicate with companies and PR organizations; some market work required. You’ll also offer administrative support in the office, as needed; you will approach both big and small responsibilities with enthusiasm.
About the ideal candidate:
* A quick learner who is eager to grow
* Curious, efficient and solution oriented
* Strong communication skills, both verbal & written
* Very organized with a strong attention to detail
* Avid reader of blogs and online media; explorer of all corners of the Internet
* Bonus: 1-3 years experience in online publishing or at a lifestyle magazine; experience with WordPress
Cup of Jo is an equal opportunity employer. We’re happy to offer a competitive salary (the range for this position is between $45,000 and $55,000, depending on experience) and medical/dental benefits, plus a generous vacation plan. We work from a bright, comfortable, friendly Brooklyn office with excellent snacks.
If you’re interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a letter about yourself, a resumé, and a link to your online presence (Instagram, Linked In, etc.) We’ll be reviewing the applications over the next few weeks and will be in touch shortly. Thank you so much for your time, and very much looking forward to hearing from you. xoxo
