Job description

So What is Bisnow Media?

Bisnow is the largest producer of news and events within the commercial real estate industry across North America, Canada, the UK and Ireland. Like any other industry, executives within CRE need to be informed and connected to do their jobs well. And in CRE, doing your job well means doing smarter deals and more of them.

Bisnow Media's mission is to inform, connect and advance the commercial real estate community to do more business. We aspire to be the most data-driven and humanizing digital media, live events and intelligence platform in the galaxy — and through this effort, drive the industry to do smarter business. From events and news to branded content and video, our singular voice, attitude and perspective reaches 18 million all-digital readers and more than 100,000 industry insiders who attend our 300+ Bisnow events each year. Operating in more than 50 cities across North America and Europe, we tend to think globally, but strive to connect people hyper-locally.

Bisnow is seeking a seasoned, razor sharp West Coast Editor in Los Angeles or San Francisco to help lead, report and build our burgeoning commercial real estate news operations. We’re in the business of delivering intelligence at the intersection of international commercial real estate and politics, sports, entertainment, business, technology and beyond. We are seeking a thorough editor who has a deep understanding of the commercial real estate market and is enthusiastic about amazing office and apartment buildings, brick and mortar retail, restaurants, architecture, design, technology, construction, urbanism and lifestyle trends.

What The Role Entails

  • Provide editorial planning and hands-on execution for day-to-day West Coast CRE coverage, 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.

  • Line edit online articles, newsletters and morning briefs.

The Ideal Candidate Must Have

  • Clear, friendly, hyper-organized, goals-based management style

  • Demonstrated experience as a skilled, thorough and conscientious storyteller

  • Experience editing and recruiting high-caliber writers and editors

  • An eye for quality journalism, as well as stories with viral/share potential

  • Excellent news judgment

  • Deep familiarity with the competitive set in the West Coast CRE news space

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).
