Romper is seeking an Associate Entertainment & Parenting News Editor. The right candidate will have a passion for the Romper mission & be comfortable writing, as well as managing a small team of PT writers, to create daily content covering everything from celebrity & entertainment news to viral & trending parenting topics.
This role is only for someone who loves writing & working with other writers to hone angles, think critically, & draw a line from a single story to the bigger conversation. The ideal candidate will be well immersed in millennial parenting culture & fascinated by its intersection with the celebrity & entertainment world - from the newest boundary-pushing Sesame Street puppet & Cardi B's latest Insta, to how the most recent episode of This Is Us tackles breastfeeding.
Candidates should have a solid understanding of SEO & social media practices, & an ability to package stories for different platforms. An ability to use real-time analytics to help prioritize assignments is also key, as well as a dedication to independent thought, humor, & inclusivity. This editor will produce an average of 5-6 stories per day.
This role is based in New York City & remote applicants will not be considered.
