Vox Media is hiring a

Growth & Development Team Coordinator

Washington, United States

Vox Media is a technology-driven media company. We're solving the problem of developing high-value digital journalism, storytelling, and brand advertising at scale—and empowering the most talented web voices and their audiences with Chorus, our modern media platform. We develop the highest quality content, conversations, and applications for a monthly audience of over 150 million passionate people around the world.

Our Growth & Development team is focused on ensuring that Vox Media grows its brands like we grow our products: understand how they resonate with users, run experiments, iterate, measure, repeat. G&D is responsible for facilitating brand growth through understanding audience metrics, developing audience-focused content plans, developing strong visual identities for all our brands, and engaging in innovative, experimental storytelling across all platforms.

We're seeking a driven and highly organized Growth & Development Team Coordinator to help us continue building and maintaining our team that sits between editorial, revenue and product.  You're a resourceful, friendly, and pragmatic problem-solver. As a resource and advocate for our analysts, editors, videographers, designers, engineers, and product managers, your mission is to represent them outside the company, do everything you can to help them to focus on their work, and ensure we continue to recruit and onboard the best talent to keep growing the team.

Overall responsibilities

Our coordinator’s overall mission is to keep the Growth and Development department happy and focused. Our department is at the intersection of all other areas of the company, and as we grow we need to stay committed to giving them the best-possible experience for our employees and collaborators. They should have all the tools they need to do their jobs, a good space to work, a sense of connection to the team and our goals/mission, and avenues to express their concerns, feedback, and ideas. This should be at the front of the Coordinator’s mind at all times.

Daily responsibilities:

  • Create strong, united cultural systems across all of Growth and Development to ensure our teams feel like they’re a part of one cohesive department. (Facilitate knowledge shares, all-hands, etc).
  • Handle various essential administrative tasks (paid time off, budgets, equipment purchases, travel, off-site and other event planning, etc.)
  • Ensure clear and timely communication across the department, and with other departments.
  • Facilitate efficient and effective meetings and transparently communicate relevant information to the department and stakeholders.
  • Build relationships with all members of our team in DC, NYC, and various remote locations.
  • Provide support to staff who take on speaking engagements, hosting classes/students/guests
  • Help guide our hiring process and run logistics for hiring and onboarding 
  • Serve as Growth & Development’s primary point of contact for the Product, Editorial, Finance, IT, Legal, and People & Culture teams

We encourage candidates of all experience levels to apply. If the above doesn't seem like an exact fit for your skillset, please get in touch anyway and tell us why you want to work with us. And while this is a DC-based position, we're willing to consider extraordinary candidates based in NYC—make your case!
