Job Description

Morning Brew is a media company that covers the business news and narratives shaping our world. The companies, the people, the workplace, the economy — we nerd out on this stuff, and we’re dedicated to helping our audience navigate it all in a way that informs and entertains.

The Morning Brew team is clever, creative, and growing fast. Want in? Read on.

OVERVIEW

We are looking for an editor to lead and shape coverage of Tech Brew, our publication that covers how companies are investing in, using, and creating technologies to drive their businesses forward. This is both a strategic and hands-on role that will allow you to shape the future of this publication. If you like the challenge of setting editorial strategy and helping reporters execute on stories, well, we’ve got the gig for you.

Tech Brew’s coverage aims to help our almost 500,000 subscriber-base make sense of the innovative technologies that can and will have a material impact on everything from corporate strategy to production to sales, and all points in between.

By exploring technologies and innovations that executives across industries are working on, Tech Brew contextualizes the what, the how and the why companies approach technology.

The outlet is a combination of original reporting and aggregating and curating the most important and interesting information, all in service of the mission to help readers across various industries make better decisions.

Morning Brew is based in New York City but this role is remote-friendly for all candidates.

HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL BE WORKING ON

– Manage day-to-day operations of the Tech Brew newsletter production process, including assigning/approving stories, editing pieces, and writing headlines.

– Manage, coach, and develop a team of three reporters.

– Generate, develop, and execute ideas for non-newsletter products and other special editorial projects.

– Serve as a strategic liaison with growth, engagement, integrated marketing, and sales teams.

– Write stories if and as needed.

– Enforce Morning Brew editorial guidelines, editing content for high-level substance, Brew tone and voice, and standard copy.

– Support optimization of existing content processes and establish new ones where needed.

– Support analysis of audience trends.

QUALIFICATIONS

– At least 8 years of professional editorial experience

– At least 5 years experience managing a team of writers

– Ability to write in the Morning Brew style (engaging, informative, clever)

– Flexible worker who is equally motivated by strategic, long-term thinking and hands-on execution.

– Ability to intentionally experiment with, iterate on, and make hard decisions about new product offerings.

– Excellent communication skills with a mindset for collaboration.

– Ability to operate in a high-pressure environment with tight deadlines.

– Understanding of how to leverage multiple platforms (email, social media, etc.) to engage with the target audience.

$100k – $110k a year

Final offers for this job will be made within the parameters of the salary range provided, commensurate with experience. Total offer package to include benefits highlighted under our perks section below.

WHAT ELSE ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

Character and integrity rank pretty high on the list. Our team is guided by our core values:

HOW WE TREAT EACH OTHER

Respectful Candor: We believe that engaging in timely, constructive, and open discourse is an act of respect that makes for a more transparent and productive work environment.

Empathy: We establish a strong partnership of trust with our co-workers and partners. We build human connections in order to understand each other.

Inclusivity: We strive to celebrate and welcome people of diverse backgrounds and cultures. Differing perspectives help us make better decisions and have more fulfilling experiences.

HOW WE TREAT OUR WORK

Curiosity: We learn every day through deliberate inquiry and exploration. We re-examine assumptions to be a better company, offer better products, and become better colleagues.

Accountability: We celebrate our successes and own our failures. Taking responsibility for our actions allows us to learn from our experiences.

Bias Toward Action: We know speed matters in business so we embrace quick and calculated risk-taking. We understand that many actions are reversible and therefore we are solutions-oriented, even when facing obstacles and challenges.

Challenger Mentality: We don’t allow ourselves to be comfortable with our success. We are hungry to become the best and create more value for our audience.

Clarity of Purpose: We understand the “why” in our work, which helps us to operate at our highest level of performance and efficiency.

 

PERKS

While being surrounded by a bunch of cool people who look great in crewnecks is its own reward, we have plenty more to offer:

 

🌴 Unlimited PTO: And by “unlimited,” we mean absolutely unlimited.

🏠 U.S Remote-work friendly: Work from home, work from a coffee shop, work from your friend’s sofa, or work from…

🏢 Brew’s Brand-New HQ: Pick an adjustable standing desk or cozy corner and load up on free coffee (duh) and snacks at our new two-story office space in NYC’s Flatiron District.

💰 401(k) employer match: We want to help you prepare for the future, now. 

⚕️ Premium health, vision, and dental plans: Your health matters!

🛋 Mental health benefits: Personalized plans and programs to promote your mental well-being.

💞 Extra help when you need it: Including a care concierge, plus free access to One Medical and the Calm app.

👪 Family planning: Want to join #brewparents? Generous paid parental leave and fertility coverage for eligible employees.

☕️ Employee Resource Groups: Black Coffee, LGBTQ Brew, AAPI Brew, Cafe Con Leche, and Grounded

👨‍💻 WFH stipend: Customize your home office, on us!

🏋️ Gym and workout class reimbursements: It pays to be healthy.

🎓 Annual learning credit: Want to learn something new? We’ll reimburse you.

Morning Brew is deeply committed to fostering a transparently inclusive workplace environment, and people of color, women, people with disabilities, veterans, and LGBTQIA+ candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. Our company-wide mission is to reach very diverse audiences, and so, we are committed to having teams and leaders that reflect this mission.
