Senior Content Manager & Editor

| Greater LA Area

Centerfield drives more than two million sales each year for residential services, business services and telecommunications brands such as AT&T, Charter Spectrum and Frontier Communications. Our technology platform, Dugout, and leading consumer guides engage with in-market consumers to help them purchase the right product or service, including internet connections, TV plans, phone, and security, for their home and business.

The Consumer Guides team at Centerfield Media is looking for a Senior Content Manager and Editor to join our growing organization. The Consumer Guides team at Centerfield builds web sites that consumers love, such as BroadbandNow.com, where anyone can find and compare local internet service providers.

The Sr. Content Manager and Editor should be passionate about writing, editing and producing a ton of content – whether it’s working with our in-house analytics team to produce a data-driven report, editing a freelance article on a highly technical or niche topic, or authoring a guide that helps consumers make an important decision. Importantly, this position should have proven results of taking a complex social, political, economic or technical topic – and produce something that others love – such as being noticed by an important technical journal or going viral in the press.

Centerfield has been awarded a Los Angeles Best Places to Work 2014-Present, and named one of Inc5000’s Fastest Growing Private Companies. Located at the heart of Silicon Beach in Playa Vista, Centerfield has built its company culture around a fun work environment and participation in charitable events.

An Insider's view of Centerfield

How does your team reward individual success?

We have a bonus program that's based on individual performance and the best part about it is that it's paid quarterly so you're constantly getting a bonus check. We also have a quarterly all-star award which is rewarded to someone once a quarter who went above and beyond - and not only do they get a plaque but they get a cool prize too.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe in our office is friendly, laid back and casual, but don’t let that fool you-everyone is always hard at work! You can tell people care about their individual performance as well as their contribution to the company’s mission. While consistently busy, we still make time to socialize and catch up with each other and have fun!
