Los Angeles, United States

Ranker is growing! Do you like reading and talking about makes the internet buzz? Do you love lists and listicles? Are you constantly sending links to your friends and arguing the merits of the lists? If you are, we want to meet you!

We're currently looking for the right person looking to join our Content team as our new Associate SEO Content Editor in charge of our lists.

The ideal candidate has some professional experience working for a content publisher like Ranker, in which you’ve proven your ability to develop efficient systems and execute. You are always problem-solving ways to save time and improve quality. You are a self-starter who will embrace our start-up culture, and throw yourself into making our company a huge success.

But perhaps most importantly, you know a lot about a lot of things, and have a fast mind. You think fast, type fast, and work fast. You can quickly rattle off trivia, and when you need to look it up you are able to do so quickly.  

As our Associate SEO Content Editor - Lists, you will:

  • Take ownership of existing lists as well as oversee new additions added to lists
  • Oversee freelance writers and check accuracy and authority of their information
  • Develop processes and systems to scale the operation
  • Edit copy for grammar and readability

What we’re looking for:

  • 0 - 2 years commercial work experience in a content editorial role, preferably for a content publisher
  • Broad knowledge of a ton of different topics, ranging from pop-culture, anime, sports, the newest shows on Netflix, etc...basically a one-stop shop of random trivia that that Internet loves to talk about, and the ability to come up with a decent ranking of various topics
  • A good understanding of how people search for things (ie what people put into the Google search bar when they’re looking for trivia)
  • Bachelors degree from a 4-year college is a must; a degree in Communications, English or similar is helpful, but really, we just want to know that you’ve done what it takes to get through college
  • Must already be local to the Los Angeles area (we're located in the Mid-Wilshire district).

Bonus points for:

  • SEO experience is a MAJOR plus, particularly those with modern SEO practices and familiarity with doing keyword research and understanding how to create content around it. You understand how people search for things, how to incorporate keywords into content without stuffing, and can create ideas for content based on what people are searching for on Google.
  • Experience with web analytical tools (ie Google Analytics)
  • Experience working for a startup or similarly fast-growing company - you already know the drill of what it’s like to work in a very casual, fast-growing environment

What's in it for you:

  • Be part of a fun, fast-growing, mid-stage media startup
  • Competitive compensation including salary ($30K - $40K+), bonuses, and meaningful equity
  • Full benefits package, including medical, dental, vision, paid time off
  • Work in a very casual workplace conveniently located in the Mid-Wilshire district, minutes from Beverly Hills, Miracle Mile, and the 10 Freeway

If you’re interested:

In addition to a current resume and salary requirements, we’d like to know more about why YOU would be a great fit for the role. What we are looking for often doesn’t show on a resume. With that said, the best way to get our attention, particularly if your resume doesn’t show it, is to demonstrate in your application, cover letter,  or in other attachments why you fit the unique characteristics of this role. For example:

  • Send us links to blog posts or other online writing that showcase your breadth of knowledge
  • List all the topic areas that you are either an expert, or “well-versed” in (be as granular as you want)
  • Describe any kind of large projects you managed and the kinds of efficient processes you developed
