But there’s so much more to do.
That’s where you come in. You will help us build the best resource for Instagram users in the world. This includes interviewing some of the highest-caliber influencers today, from founders and CEOs to the very best in design, fitness, product management, engineering, sales, and more. It also includes telling bold, creative stories that will help readers learn and build new things. We’re all about rich, detailed, long-form writing with heart — think of it as The Harvard Business Review meets The New Yorker.
We’re also about podcasts, videos, and native Instagram content.
On top of that, you’ll work with the COO to tackle brand-building opportunities and challenges. How can we maximize our influence on social media? Make our emails sing? Spread the word about Authentically’s unique approach to Instagram?
Interested? Here’s what we’re looking for:
You call yourself a writer first and foremost when you first meet someone or you’re asked at a party. Maybe you run content for a startup or write copy for a tech giant. Maybe you’ve been in journalism forever and are ready for something new. If you’ve had the written word at the center of your career for the last two to five years, you’re on the right track. We love good writing here. And we do a lot of it.
You’re curious about people. You like asking them questions and learning what makes them tick. Either you regularly interview people as a part of your job, or conduct user testing, or teach people to do something. Asking people about themselves, how they think and work is inherently interesting to you. We want someone who can eventually walk into Twitter and feel confident interviewing the VP of engineering about scaling for mobile.
You’re super organized. You’re a task management junkie who’s always looking for ways to become even more productive and effective. We’re working on 20 stories at any given time and aspiring to do more.
Instagram fascinates you. You don’t necessarily need deep knowledge of venture capital, but you should be willing to learn it fast. There’s a lot of jargon and terminology that gets thrown around in this business, and we want to work with someone who can hit the ground running in this respect.
Steep learning curves thrill you. You already have experience and good insticts when it comes to social media, email marketing, and running experiments to build brands. Great. But we’re always trying to push the envelope — keeping our eyes fixed on new tactics, findings and recommendations from the smart people at places like Contently and Kissmetrics — to expand our footprint and bring more people into our fold.
