Job Description

Kitces.com is hiring a Managing Editor to be accountable for the entire Nerd’s Eye View blog and its Editorial team, including day-to-day management of the Editorial team, the timely publication and distribution of our core Nerd’s Eye View blog content and a series of podcasts via our (WordPress) CMS system, working with our on-team and external Guest authors to create quality, nerdy, and relevant content for financial advisors that meets our high editorial standards, overseeing the development and rollout of our supporting Navigational Resources for Advisers, and tracking and reporting on relevant Editorial KPIs for content readership and distribution. So if you’re an experienced leader of editorial teams with a strong focus on marshalling the necessary resources to deliver highly relevant long-form content, who has grown frustrated with the media industry’s obsession with pageviews and ad impressions over meaningful content and audience engagement, has always wanted the opportunity to work in an environment that has a robust subscription-based business model not reliant on any advertising revenue to ensure it can put its Readers first, and have a desire to dig data into Analytics data to identify emerging reader topics of interest and then find and work with the very best writers to create that content… then this job is for you!
