Responsibilities

Bravo Digital is looking for a seasoned content creator to help drive growth around two of its key lifestyle verticals.

You’ll be brimming with editorial ideas around relationships and pets and will help craft the distinct voice and tone that Bravo brings to our Personal Space and Unleashed content.

Overseeing a full-time associate editor and a team of freelance contributors, you’ll be responsible for all aspects of editorial planning to ensure that each vertical is publishing timely, relevant and sharable content every day.

Reporting to the Senior Producer, News & Lifestyle, the ideal candidate will have experience in either the relationships or pets space and will be strongly rooted in digital-first publishing.

Understanding and utilizing Web metrics and data to inform editorial decision making is not just encouraged, but expected. You’ll also be well versed in publishing content to different digital platforms (Facebook, Pinterest etc) and will have an understanding of how to forge and foster editorial partnerships with 3rd-party publishers.

While you’ll be charged with the oversight and growth of these two verticals, you’ll be equally comfortable assigning stories to freelancers as you are writing content around fast-moving, buzz-worthy story opportunities. A hands-on operator will thrive in this role.

You’ll work closely with other content creators across Bravo to leverage our talent and IP for each vertical when it makes sense to do so. In addition, you’ll be comfortable thinking about advertiser-friendly content packages and opportunities to help drive sponsorships.

Responsibilities include:

  • Manage and maintain Personal Space and Unleashed on Bravotv.com

  • Manage daily story assignments and freelance contributors

  • Edit copy, coordinate relevant media -- photos, video, etc. -- and publish in a timely fashion

  • Create and publish blog posts, photo galleries, video playlists, and other content experiences within Bravo’s CMS

  • Develop digital tentpoles, franchises, and rich video concepts within the relationships and pets space

  • Manage distribution/promotion of relationships and pets content through social media, on-air, and other platforms

  • Monitor and analyze real-time user activity (both on Bravo platforms and on social media) to identify opportunities to promote or create content

  • Identify and help recruit potential content partners whose voices align with Bravo’s

  • Implement SEO best practices on all generated content

Qualifications/Requirements

Additional Job Requirements:

•Interested candidate must submit a resume/CV through www.nbcunicareers.com to be considered

•Must be willing to work in New York, NY

DESIRED CHARACTERISTICS

  • Ability to conceive of compelling, shareable features and franchises that endure beyond the standard news cycle

  • Experience creating successful sponsor-integrated content

  • Experience creating digital content for new / emerging platforms

  • Working knowledge of video production a plus

  • Deep understanding of Bravo voice and brand characteristics a plus
