Job description

Bisnow is seeking a seasoned, razor-sharp Central U.S. Editor preferably in Houston or Chicago to help lead, report and build our burgeoning commercial real estate news operations.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Provide editorial planning and hands-on execution for day-to-day coverage of Chicago, Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth and other markets, long-term packages and special projects for Bisnow.com and our large stable of newsletters.
  • Manage a team of full-time reporters and freelancers, including organization and professional growth.
  • Assign articles and line edit online articles, newsletters and morning briefs.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • Minimum five years of experience working on an editorial team, including experience managing a team of reporters.

  • Basic Google Analytics skills.
  • Basic SEO knowledge.

What Are The Benefits?

  • We have a competitive compensation structure that rewards those who work hard well
  • Vacation is important and we want you to take it. We’re also not into bureaucracy so tracking vacation sounds insane and that’s why we decided years ago to offer unlimited vacation
  • Health, dental, vision, commuter, short term disability and 401k benefits are included for all of our full-time employees
  • You’ll get to work with incredibly smart, passionate, driven, ambitious, kind, caring and mindful people and will rarely experience an overload of policies, bureaucracy or toxicity (the latter, we do not tolerate. Period).
