This has nothing to do with DC sports, so move along if you’re already gainfully employed …
Let’s get this out of the way: The position I’m trying to fill requires you to give up any hopes of going outside for an extended period of time over the weekends. We’re talking 8-10 hours every Saturday and Sunday.
Now, if you haven’t x’ed out of this post, the good news: This is a rather prominent editor position for SB Nation, which is poised to become “scary good.” (Some [me] would argue it’s already in that category.) In addition to the 200+ blogs within the network, you may have heard that we recently received a little bit of funding and hired Spencer Hall and Eamonn Brennan. Not to mention they hired this guy a few months back, so you know SBN means business.
Without going into too much detail, here are some basic requirements:
- As mentioned, must be available to work weekends
- Extensive blogging/writing experience; having done so on a national scale helps
- Editor/manager experience isn’t necessary, but certainly is a big plus
- Vast understanding of the sports internets; web savvy; strong editorial instincts; etc.
Email me if you’re interested. A resume and writing samples wouldn’t hurt.
