Are you a wordsmith with a penchant for crafting the perfect headline? Do you dig new technology? Does the excitement of content marketing keep you up at night?

Propecta is a fast-paced, highly creative, marketing agency, and we're looking for our next superstar editorial team member to support our growing client base, primarily in IT/tech and B2B areas.

Today's SEO depends substantially on content that is creative, engaging, helpful, and meaningful to website visitors. The Associate Editor will collaborate with staff and clients to research and conceptualize impactful content concepts, and coordinate with a team of freelance writers to manage content production timelines through to completion.

The right candidate is comfortable providing direction and feedback to others, and confident in sharing ideas with both team members and clients. Even though this is a remote position, you would be collaborating with others on a daily basis.

Because many of our clients are in the technology sector, we need an editor who is comfortable with learning about emerging--and sometimes complex--IT and tech topics. Experience in a B2B environment is a big plus.

As a content editor at Propecta, you will have the opportunity engage in the complete content process from strategy and ideation to fulfillment. Primary responsibilities include:

Commissioning content drafts from our Content Team, and editing drafts to fit client needs, improve readability, and adhere to SEO best practices.
Working closely with other Propecta team members and our clients to create strategic and comprehensive SEO-based content marketing strategies.
Conducting research into keywords, high-performing content, buyer personas and journeys, and competitor sites, in order to inform and improve content strategies.

This position is primarily remote, although the ideal candidate would be within driving distance of our company headquarters in Lake Geneva, WI, for a two or three in-office days per month. (Note the initial training period requires a heavier in-office time.) The position is full-time, and includes health benefits and PTO.

Core Responsibilities:
Produce content that is of exceptional quality, aligns with the reader's needs, protects client voice, and utilizes Propecta's SEO best practices.
Handle each step of the content production process, including topical research and planning, writer assignment, editorial review, and posting to websites.
Perform detailed research into keywords, client and competitor site content, and other online elements to help develop competitive content strategies.
Manage freelance writers throughout the content production process and ensure client specifications, quality standards, and deadlines are met.
Work collaboratively with other staff and clients to build and refine content strategies for each project.
