  • Fun-loving and optimistic : )

If you love the world of content publishing, and geek out on operations, systems, and workflows, I’d love to hear from you!


  • Cash compensation range: $80,000 – $120,000

Who We Are is one of the fastest growing food and recipe websites online. Going from 0 to 10 million visitors per month in less than 4 years. The website now sees over 100 million visitors per year.

But none of this would be possible without the incredibly talented team of writers, editors, photographers, graphic designers, and content specialists who built this website from the ground up.

I still can’t believe what an amazing group of people I get to work with each day.

We’re on a mission to become the #1 recipe website online. As the Managing Editor, you would play a big role in helping to make that happen.

We’re looking for someone who is BOLD, entrepreneurial-minded, and up for a fun challenge : )

Someone who gets a sweet satisfaction from seeing the traffic numbers go up AND has the operational and SEO knowledge to make it happen.

If that sounds like you, I can’t wait to hear from you!
