    S&A Logo

    Do you dream of becoming an Editor-in-Chief? We need someone with a strong editorial voice and personality to help shape the editorial direction of our new companies and keep these new companies from making mistakes that harm their subscribers. 

     

    This Editorial role will be intense – you’ll try new things, learn from best practices, hire talented employees and have to be a “utility player” during the earliest stages of a business’ development to ensure a smooth growth from startup to stable business.

     

    Make no mistake, our goals are aggressive. 

     

    The ideal Editorial Manager candidate will be based in Baltimore and while this is a startup role which requires wearing many hates, the goal is that this role will be a springboard to an Editor-in-Chief role in one of the affliates. To that end, we are seeking a hardworking, versatile and particulary entrepreneurial team player.
