Managing Editor bei Brightmode


Message Lab is a fast-growing content marketing agency that combines journalism, data, and design to create content that resonates with audiences. We have a strong point of view on how editorial, design, and data work together in the service of a singular goal. It starts with identifying great stories that support the ideas our clients care about and bringing them to life in a range of formats. Our work spans the gamut of a modern publication—from full ground-up publications to individual high-end interactive storytelling pieces, and everything in between. We focus on partnering with our clients to find what they really need to get the job done and use our top-tier skills in strategy, editorial, design, and analysis to deliver.

We run a number of programs and publications for a roster of business and technology clients (including Google, the Gates Foundation, SoftBank, ServiceNow, and others), creating and producing well-sourced, deeply-reported stories. Our editorial team comes from the WSJ, NY Times, Bloomberg, and similar places, and we hold the work we’re doing now to the standards of those publications. To be clear: We’re an agency that does work for companies. You should be someone who thinks that’s interesting and an opportunity to learn exciting new skills (which we don’t expect you to have right away). We have a team focused on using analytics to understand and improve reader engagement who you’ll be expected to work closely with—another great opportunity to learn.

We improve people's experience with our clients’ brands and help rid the world of content no one cares about.


Message Lab is seeking a Managing Editor to lead our editorial team. In this role you will manage and collaborate with team leads across various departments such as design, operations, strategy, analytics and audience building to uncover new opportunities. The ideal candidate will have strong editing skills, a strong editorial vision, and a nose for the right stories. We’re looking for someone who is curious and excited about guiding clients and our team to identify the right kind of story to tell and the right format to tell it in—not every story wants to be a 2,000-word reported feature. 

This is an opportunity for someone with a deep appreciation for marketing, practical experience using a journalistic toolkit in a services setting, and an enthusiasm for talking to clients and prospects about the benefits of doing this. You’ll be a part of helping us define the vision, use case, and creative process for SEO content, emails, copywriting, reports, and other assets that aren’t traditional journalism but, when done well and utilized properly, can provide value to our clients’ audiences.

This role will report directly to the CEO of Message Lab.

Role location: Fully remote (within the United States). Message Lab is fully remote and we require employees to be available and online during our core business hours (10 a.m.-to-2 p.m. Pacific Time), regardless of their physical location.
