Editor

We’re excited to add another exceptional Editor to our fast-growing content marketing team. Content marketing is a critical driver of growth for Slack’s business, and our editors are an essential part of that strategy. They set the vision for our award-winning blog, manage the end-to-end editorial workflow in a highly collaborative environment, generate data-driven insights to improve content, and much, much more.

Responsibilities:

  • Edit individual articles and related content assets with a high degree of visibility and interactivity with internal and external partners. You’ll work across a truly diverse range of digital content, including SEO-friendly blog posts, product tips, customer stories, case studies, ebooks, guides, landing pages, video scripts and other content relevant to Slack’s mission and customers.   
  • Act as a standard-bearer for readability and impact, ensuring all copy serves the needs of the end-user, from line edits to full structural revamps.
  • Develop and coach writers, both in-house and freelance, with clear, candid and empathetic feedback
  • Leverage analytics and relevant research to guide decisions about what to write.
  • Optimize existing content using engagement data and best practices.
  • Manage key relationships with partners to refine narratives and reinforce messaging.

Requirements:

  • 5-7 years of experience in a hands-on editing capacity within a fast-paced content operation, inside or outside the enterprise software world. You might currently work on a marketing or communications team or at a wide-circulation digital publication. It’s less about where you come from and more about your skills and potential for growth.
  • A strong “test and learn” mindset. There may not be a playbook in place for everything we want to accomplish. That should energize you.
  • Keen ability to translate technical concepts into copy that is clear, concise, and human — and a strong track record of coaching others to achieve the same standards.
  • Exceptional communication, prioritization, and time management skills. You love deadlines.
  • Experience managing editorial calendars.
  • Success working cross-functionally on integrated marketing campaigns or a demonstrated willingness to apply your current skill-set to this type of effort.
  • Ability to work independently and globally with colleagues and partners in AMER, EMEA, and APAC.
