Engagement Editor, Branded Content

At Freethink Media, we believe the daily news should inspire people to build a better world. While most media is fueled by toxic politics and negativity, we focus on solutions: the smartest people, the biggest ideas, and the most ground breaking technology shaping our future. 

Across our two flagship sites, Freethink and Big Think, we publish over 50 new articles and short documentaries every week to a community of more than 13 million followers and subscribers.

What You’ll Do

Can you write headlines and social copy that instantly grab attention online? Can you manage tens of social channels, optimizing content for each platform to build true communities? Do you obsess over data and analytics, using them to consistently drive strategy? Can you manage multiple client-facing projects simultaneously with a laser-sharp eye for detail and absolute correctness?

Turning complex stories into clear, compelling hooks isn’t easy, and neither is building the communities to consume those stories. That’s what this role is all about.
