Birchbox is seeking an assistant editor to join its content team. Birchbox is a New York based startup that is part beauty sampling service, part e-commerce site, and part editorial channel. As a growing company, the assistant editor will be joining a small editorial staff and will be expected to write and research articles, blogs posts, brand copy, and product copy on a regular basis. Other duties will include building blogs and articles, analyzing site traffic, setting up sweepstakes, assisting with syndication, and helping us improve our social media strategy. This is a great opportunity to learn about all the different aspects of working for a website, blog, and startup, and develop a variety of necessary skills.
Requirements Strong writing and research skills are a must. Previous Photoshop, CMS, and blog experience are a major plus. This person needs to be a self-starter who knows how to prioritize, is incredibly detail-oriented, and doesn’t require a lot of structure or guidance. Ultimately, we’re looking for someone with enthusiasm and a desire to take on multiple projects at once.
Why Birchbox • It’s a chance to be at the start of something huge. We’ve only made a small dent in what we plan to do and we're doubling every three months, simply from organic growth. We are pursuing big dreams and we’ll give you the chance to explore yours too. • You’ll find an agile setting with very low barriers to getting things done. • You can dive into our crazy supply of beauty products – test them sometimes before they even hit the shelves (there’s plenty for men too!) • Good snacks. • We’re all about having fun. We are an energetic, innovative team that laughs a lot. • You’ll work in an environment of complete transparency. Our founders don’t have big fancy corner offices – they sit right next to our employees and everyone knows where the company is headed.
If interested, please email your resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a couple writing samples. Candidates of interest will be contacted directly to set up a time to come in and meet with the team.
