Overview:

Pearl Publishing Media Group (PPMG) is currently in search of a qualified Managing Content Director (MCD) to oversee production and editorial for all of its assets, including print publications, signature events, and digital content (website, newsletter, and social media).

Current Portfolio Includes:

DiningOut Magazines (8 markets nationwide, 2-3 issues per year per market

DiningOut Passbooks (4 markets with 3 new markets planned in the next 12 months)

DiningOut Signature Events Top Taco Denver, Top Taco New Orleans, Chicken Fight Denver, and The Convoy Food Truck Festival at Velorama; additional festivals being added for 2018

Websites DiningOut.com (for all markets); ChickenFightFest.com; TopTacoDenver.com.

In The Mix Newsletters, featuring event, magazine, and Passbook content

Position responsibilities:

The Managing Content Director (MCD) will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of the business as relates to content creation and production, including managing a small staff of in-house editors, art directors, and external freelancers; overseeing the Passbook Manager; remotely liaising with publishers/producers in various markets; periodically attending media events; and working directly with festival producers to ensure that all deadlines and quality standards are met. In general, the MCD will be responsible for determining appropriate content for print and digital media, both for editorial and marketing purposes.

With the help of a traffic manager, the MCD will ensure all three facets of the PPMG brand—events, magazines, and Passbooks—are editorially supported by the in-house editors/art directors and share a cohesive brand mission.

Requirements:

Candidates must have strong writing and marketing skills, experience with project management, a desire for creativity, a love of the food and restaurant culture, and a roll-with-the-punches attitude. DiningOut/PPMG regularly utilizes WordPress, Adobe Creative Suite, and Mac systems for production; familiarity with these titles/hardware would be extremely beneficial. As this role will focus increasingly on digital content, basic knowledge of best SEO practices and web publishing is also desired.

This position will continue to evolve as the business evolves. It is crucial that the MCD welcome new challenges and work with the company owners to solve them. As you can imagine, this position is simultaneously fun and challenging. Entrepreneurial spirits are welcome; close-minded, set-in-their-way individuals are not.

Salary range is $45-55K to start. Please send a cover letter, two (2) writing samples, and a resume to josh@diningout.com for immediate consideration.
