Job Description

Title: Managing Editor

  • Location: US National
  • Classifications: Remote Full-Time

Yelp is looking for a Managing Editor for our burgeoning Content Marketing team. The ideal candidate thinks like a marketer and acts like a journalist. He/she/they also believes that the best B2B and B2C marketing is really all about H2H (human to human). Does this sound like you? Read on…

As the first editor on the Content Marketing team, you’ll work with freelance writers, agencies, and other contributors inside and outside of Yelp to develop content that generates more consumer and business owner traffic to Yelp. The goal is to make more meaningful and helpful connections with business owners and consumers in all categories—from restaurants and nightclubs to plumbers and landscapers.

This is a unique opportunity to join a rapidly growing marketing organization, contribute to Yelp’s growth, and help local businesses succeed. This is a remote position and does not require a physical presence in Yelp’s San Francisco headquarters. We will consider candidates located anywhere in the United States.

Interested? Please submit a resume, portfolio, and brief cover letter that tells us why we’d be crazy not to hire you.

Where you come in:

  • You will manage the production of and edit articles and posts to drive SEO traffic to the Yelp consumer site, the Yelp for Business site, and the business blog
  • You will help manage the production of (and occasionally research and write) other types of content to inspire and build trust with the business owner audience, including: educational articles, guides, and customer stories
  • You will collaborate with colleagues in marketing, PR, product, customer success, and sales as well as external entities—including customers, partners, freelancers, agencies, and vendors—to create and distribute content
  • You will work with teams that request content to understand their goals for the project, identify a concept, and ultimately create content that will achieve those goals, appeal to the defined audience, and stay true to the Yelp brand
  • You will help implement, manage, and maintain all the behind-the-scenes guides, systems, and processes that keep us running like a well-oiled machine: editorial calendars, content audits, style guides, analytics, etc.
  • You will serve as an editor for content contributors around the organization and other members of the content team
  • You will foster a culture of creative excellence; explain the thinking behind writing/editing decisions; and share best practices with other writers and non-writers

  • You have an enormous amount of empathy and humanity, with a deep understanding of how words make people feel
  • You have a healthy respect for deadlines: the ability to prioritize progress over perfection and the drive to see projects through to completion
  • You are excited about all aspects of content development: idea generation, research, writing, gathering input and buy in, editing, collaborating with designers, and the ultimate thrill: clicking “publish” and seeing your work in the wild
  • Bachelor’s degree in communications, journalism, or marketing is preferred
