Senior Content Manager & Editor
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.
