The Active Times aims to be the world’s best source of authoritative, inspiring, enlightening content for living the active, adventurous life. Whatever your passions in outdoor and endurance sports, travel and adventure. The Active Times provides the tools and information you need to do your best – and enjoy the ride. We tell the stories, recruit the experts, and assemble the information you need to get motivated and do it right. We’re passionate and great gear, expert technique, interesting people, and amazing venues close to home and around the world. We bring them all together – and connect the community – in a smart, visual, accessible way.
The Active Times has an exciting, career opportunity in its editorial department. We’re looking for an editor to mine the active sports community – from the local running path to the Eiger’s legendary North Face – for the latest on the sports, adventure, locales, health and fitness, people and gear that encapsulate the active lifestyle.
Specific duties include, but are not limited to:
Pitching, researching and writing how-to’s, gear reviews and occasional news items and trend pieces for multiple daily posts; building stories for content partners; helping to increase the contributor base across all channels and develop and engaged community of like-minded athletes and adventurers.
Knowledge of, and participation in, the active lifestyle – specifically running, fitness, hiking, climbing and adventure travel – is a distinct advantage. We want people who live and breathe the active life and, by extension, are members of the audience they’re speaking to. The perfect candidate also has real world journalism experience – be it on a newspaper, magazine or website staff. He/she is a social media wunderkind or web savvy type who’s not afraid of a bit of HTML. Most importantly, though, the successful applicant is smart, hardworking, hungry to learn and eager to prove himself/herself at a performance-driven, growth oriented startup.
