Join Marketing Land as deputy editor
We're looking to hire a sharp editor with serious digital publishing chops and deep understanding of today's digital marketing challenges.
The Deputy Editor supports the Editor-in-Chief with the day-to-day editorial management of our content, which includes tasks such as story planning, staff assignment management and editing for voice, authority and clarity. The Deputy Editor is also a reporter who creates news and feature copy daily for the brand.
