Job / Advertisement Description

Hi there! We’re looking for a curious, collaborative, and experienced editor to fill the role of Senior Editor, Content Services at Zapier.

There is no sales team at Zapier, so our mid- and bottom-of-funnel marketing work, produced by our Content Services team, is essential in generating revenue. Content Services fulfills content requests from across Zapier. As the team’s lead Editor, you’ll be the gate-keeper of excellence, the last-eyes-on for Zapier’s marketing content, mentoring our already powerful writers and contributing to the strategy of campaigns and other content activities. You’ll be working closely with your colleagues across Marketing, Email, Product, Advertising, and Video. This role does not work on our blog or social media, though it does collaborate with those teams, under  the shared Content & Communications umbrella.

The ideal candidate is comfortable with unrelenting copyediting, as well as substantive editing in a variety of formats and under tight deadlines. You’ve worked on mid- to bottom-of-funnel marketing content and want to make an impact at a leading company in the SaaS space. This role will report to Senior Manager, Content Services.

We know applying for and taking on a new job at any company requires a leap of faith. We want you to feel comfortable and excited to apply at Zapier. To help share a bit more about life at Zapier, here are a few resources in addition to the job description that can give you an inside look at what life is like at Zapier.
