Hi there!

We're Zapier's editorial team, on a mission to teach everyone to be more productive at work. We do this through the Zapier Blog and Learning Center, sharing the best tools and productivity tactics with more than 1 million monthly readers.

We're seeking a Managing Editor to oversee our blog on productivity at work and our App Directory's editorial content (example), covering the best tools for work. In this role, you'll serve a readership of more than 1.25 million monthly visitors and 3 million Zapier product users.

You'll manage a team of three writers on staff, take responsibility for executing and evolving our editorial strategy, and oversee day-to-day operations of the content production. You'll work closely with our product team, too, as they build out new pages and redesign existing pages that better serve our readers' needs.

If you're excited about growing a publication and library of content that helps people be more productive at work—the Zapier mission—and you're passionate about growing writers' careers, you'll thrive in this role.

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.

Zapier is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace dedicated to pursuing and hiring a diverse workforce.

About You

  • You have at least five years of experience overseeing an editorial strategy, publishing calendar, and day-to-day team operations that have yielded traffic growth from your site's target audience.
  • Software and online tools are a professional interest. You're excited to explore new services like Coda.io, set up your first workflow in Airtable, or investigate Mattermost.
  • Productivity at work is a priority. You are driven to be efficient and effective in your job and are eager to help your audience do the same.
  • You're familiar with SEO best practices. You're eager to dig into data that helps you plan new pieces and expand existing content.
  • You're a team player. You realize that the work you do contributes to the marketing team's goals and company's mission: to help everyone be more productive at work.

  • Execute and evolve the Zapier Blog and App Directory editorial strategy
  • Manage three writers on staff
  • Recruit and oversee freelance writers for our blog and directory
  • Oversee production schedules, editorial calendars, and story generation for our blog and app directory
  • Plan, assign, and edit content for our blog and app directory
  • Write content for our blog and app directory
  • Put SEO best practices to work, including keyword research and tracking
  • Promote editorial content in our email newsletters, on social, and on other channels
  • Oversee our syndication program of publishing our content elsewhere, and do the same for guest authors on our blog
  • As part of our All Hands Support initiative, help customers have the best possible experience with Zapier

How To Apply

We have a non-standard application process. To jump-start the process we ask a few questions we normally would ask at the start of an interview. This helps speed up the process and lets us get to know you a bit better right out of the gate.

After you apply, you are going to hear back from us, even if we don't seem like a good fit. In fact, throughout the process, we strive to make sure you never go more than seven days without hearing from us.

About Zapier

For the past six years, Zapier has been helping people across the world automate the boring and tedious parts of their job. We do that by helping everyone connect the web applications they already use and love.

We believe that there are jobs a computer is best at doing and that there are jobs a human is best at doing. We want to empower businesses to create processes and systems that let computers do what they are best at doing and let humans do what they are best at doing.

We believe that with the right tools, you can have big impact with less hassle.

We believe in small teams. Small teams are fast and nimble. Small teams mean less bureaucracy and less management and more getting things done.

We believe in a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment. All teammates at Zapier agree to a code of conduct.

Our team of 200+ is distributed because it lets us work with the best people. You don't have to be located in the USA either. Some team members live in the United Kingdom, Thailand, India, Nigeria, Taiwan, Guatemala, New Zealand, and Australia.

  • Work with awesome companies around the world. We partner with great software companies all over the world and you'll constantly get to interact with people from these great companies.

*While we take care of our international folks as best we can, currently, healthcare and retirement plans are only available to US-based employees.
