Meet PistonHeads, the leading premium car marketplace & the largest online motoring community in the UK. We use data & technology to give consumers the tools they need to find, buy, finance, or sell a car. With a substantial following & engaged audience, we're seeking outstanding talent to accelerate our growth.

As PistonHeads' Digital Content Editor, youll be working in a hybrid role, splitting your time between the editorial & marketing teams. On the one hand you will be required to produce irreverent, informative, & entertaining copy on everything from bargain supercars to overpriced hot hatches; on the other, you will be responsible for growing our social media following, supporting marketing campaigns & generating all-important leads to our classified dealers.

Your day-to-day responsibilities will vary depending on the specific demands of each department. Certainly, you will be expected to identify feature opportunities that appeal to an enthusiast audience & communicate them in a way that resonates with a highly informed readership. This will include everything from reporting the unveiling of an electric hypercar to highlighting a cheap V8 wagon in the classifieds. An understanding of the best SEO practice & how this content should be presented across our social channels is core to the role.

You will report to our Marketing & Community Manager & will be integrated into almost everything PH does & expected to generate ideas to grow traffic across the board. Alongside a fundamental responsibility for running social media, you will contribute to broader marketing strategy, & be expected to build, schedule & report on email campaigns. Experience of sub editing & B2B copywriting is an advantage; knowing the difference between a 993 & a 996 is requirement.

Not only will you be expected to understand & engage with PHers - the constituents of the site's vast online community - you will be one of them, too. Which will mean bringing your inquisitiveness, passion, & levity to work every day, & being an ambassador for the PH-way when it comes to coordinating & attending events. You will be based at home in the short term, with the flexibility to work up to three days a week in the South Bank area of central London in the future.

What you'll do:

  • 3+ years experience working in a journalism, PR or marketing role
  • Solid understanding of luxury & performance cars
  • Dedicated, creative & analytical
  • Experience in running social media channels
  • Ability to travel & work weekends occasionally

Who You Are:

  • Experience with copywriting & sub editing
  • Experience using a social scheduling tool, such as Hootsuite or Buffer
  • Experience using analytics tools such as Google Analytics
  • Experience using an email marketing platform, such as Marketo, Sailthru or Mailchimp

CarGurus Culture:

Research shows that while men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria, women & other marginalised folks tend to only apply when they check every box. So if you think you have what it takes, but don't necessarily meet every single point on the job description, please still get in touch. We'd love to have a chat & see if you could be a great fit.

At CarGurus, we invest in our peoples professional growth with everything from learning & development programs to tuition reimbursement. Want to work on projects that expand your skill set without sacrificing your work/life balance? You got it. We also strive to provide perks & benefits that employee actually care about like free lunch, commuter subsidies, & more. That includes equity in the companyour way of showing that we want you here for the long haul.

We work hard every day to build the worlds most trusted & transparent automotive marketplace, but trust & transparency dont just apply to our consumers. They extend to our talent, too. We aim to create a workplace where everyone feels they can bring the ultimate expression of themselves & their potentialwhere you dont just fit, you thrive. We dont discriminate based on race, colour, religion, national origin, age, sex, marital status, ancestry, physical or mental disability, veteran status, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

We recognize that flexibility plays a critical role in enabling our people to thrive in both their personal & professional lives. We currently welcome Gurus into our Cambridge, MA office on a voluntary basis but do not require employees to physically be in the office. We will adopt a hybrid working model when health experts & government officials in our local communities deem it safe to do so. Specific arrangements within this model will be up to team leaders discretion; we encourage you to discuss your questions & needs during the interview process.
