Journalism Job

Media Organization: Spanfeller Media Group

Company Description

SMG is a fast growth media company conceived of and for the digital age. Media by definition is about content. This is true online or off. But end users expect more of their content experience online and that is what SMG sets out to deliver in each of its industry leading sites.

In many ways the company is looking to revolutionize how premium content is created, shared and monetized.

The Daily Meal was the first site launched by SMG in the early months of 2011. Since then it has proven to be one of the fastest growing content sites ever and THE fastest growing site within the food space.

The Active Times was launched in late June of 2012 and is also experiencing unprecedented growth.

In each case our editors strive to provide our readers with the best content available in the respective fields of each site and to do so at a scale well beyond anyone else in the category. By delivering insightful journalism, great professional-grade video and in depth data we hope to delight and fulfill all our visitors’ expectations and informational needs.

In the coming months SMG plans to launch many more world-class entities in other high interest mass vertical content arenas.
