Lead Content Editor at StartEngine in Los Angeles, United States

StartEngine is seeking a content aficionado to lead its in-house creative services division. As StartEngine’s Lead Campaign Editor, you’ll write and design crowdfunding campaign pages on behalf of the ambitious startups who come through our doors. You’ll act as a reporter of sorts, interviewing the entrepreneurs who raise money on our site, and crafting their diverse narratives in ways that can yield more investment dollars.

Companies on StartEngine don’t fit a single mold or have a common background, so neither should you.

This role is not just copywriting or designing, even though you’ll do tons of both. The Lead Campaign Editor also manages the work of other content creators, ensuring that all campaign pages are up to code. We’re looking for someone who knows how to give creative feedback, and who’s interested in growing the creative talents of others. You should also have enthusiasm about our field, care about the growth of innovative companies, and possess that classic entrepreneurial spirit.

If you have a way with words, an eye for design, and the readiness to take on more accountability than most agencies privilege, we’d like to hear from you.
