- Develop and test strategies for how to continually improve the quality and reach of your content, as judged by readership growth, 3rd party references, and contributions to site traffic

– BA degree, preferably in Journalism or English
– 3+ years of reporting / journalism experience
– You absolutely love to write and publish
– A genuine interest in covering and serving the markets we cover
– Ability to link all activities to key metrics and audience growth objectives
