As part of the most distinguished news source in the Pacific Northwest, The Seattle Times Content Studio is the division of the Advertising Department that creates custom content for our advertising customers, making deeper connections and fostering loyalty with content that goes beyond traditional advertising.
Our Seattle Times Content Studio team is expanding and in need of a qualified Assistant Editor to help traffic our written and video content. Ideally, you are detail oriented, organizationally minded (with the orderliness of a Project Manager), but have a background in content creation, article editing and video production. You will need be able to use our content management system (Wordpress), Photoshop, and be familiar with video editing software, such as Premiere. This role will require you to work seamlessly with our team, including the creative director, the branded content editor, freelance writers, freelance designers and freelance videographers.
On a daily basis, you will be juggling drafts of stories, posting branded content on the site, photo editing, managing our affiliate links, managing content for the special sections in conjunction with the Ad Pubs department, working with video production partners, interactive designers, and more. In addition, you will be working closely with Agency Services Account Managers and Account Coordinators to be sure you’re keeping everyone informed on the status of our STCS content. Being able to remain calm and stay positive will be key to success in this role.
Please note: while this is a remote position, occasional work in office may be required once normal operation resumes. Applicants should be current (or future) residents of the Puget Sound or Washington state.
