At The Infatuation, we’re on a mission to create the most trustworthy and useful restaurant recommendation platform. We serve our users by creating content that provides both utility and entertainment and we package it all up in delightful digital products.
In October 2021, The Infatuation was acquired by JPMorgan Chase, the largest bank in the U.S. The acquisition affords us the backing of a major institution, as well as the ambition for The Infatuation to become a household name. With these new resources, we will be expanding and growing more quickly than we ever have before.
The Infatuation is expanding our travel content and is hiring an Editorial Production Assistant to help coordinate the publication of restaurant guides in cities around the world. In this role, you’ll work with our travel team to find and contact freelance writers and photographers, schedule photo shoots, prepare content for publication, and keep travel projects on track. The ideal candidate is organized, extremely detail-oriented, communicative, comfortable with cold emailing and follow ups, and interested in learning the fundamentals of digital editorial production.
What You’ll Do:
Work with the Senior Editor and Director of Editorial Operations to keep the calendar on schedule and adjust as needed.
Research and reach out to freelance writers and photographers in our travel cities, and coordinate with other departments to onboard them onto Infatuation systems.
Contact restaurants to schedule photoshoots and request photography.
Upload guides for publication using The Infatuation’s content management system (Contentful), including selecting photos and proofreading.
Coordinate with marketing and creative to distribute content across various Infatuation channels.
Who You Are:
You’re interested in the operational and production side of a growing digital media outlet.
You’re organized and able to manage multiple projects at once, adjusting priorities and changing focus as needed to accommodate deadlines or scheduling issues.
You’re comfortable cold emailing and/or calling, following up, and communicating with patience. Proficiency in language(s) other than English is a plus.
You’re detail-oriented and can ensure production values are always high, have the ability to spot inconsistent formatting and typos easily, and an eye for photos that will grab the reader and tell a story.
You’re enthusiastic about travel and food!
You’re comfortable with technology. Experience with a content management system (such as Contentful), G Suite, and a project management system (such as Asana) is not required, but helpful.
