Executive Editor

Are you someone who wants to make the world a better place, who is not content to work for yet another company the world doesn't need? 

Our mission

Diet Doctor is a health company that aims to empower people everywhere to dramatically improve their health. We focus on lifestyle interventions — not medication or surgery. 

What are the important components of a healthy lifestyle for those with obesity or type 2 diabetes? How can people implement this lifestyle in a sustainable way?  

Currently, no major health organization in the world has an effective answer. We aim to change that.

Progress

  • We are currently self-funded and have no VC investment. Instead, our employees are invited to become co-owners via our employee-stock-offering plan.
  • We're the largest keto and low-carb site in the world.
  • We’re fully funded by our members, which means we don't need to show any ads or sell any physical products.
  • We have 75,000+ paying members and 60+ employees (from 20+ different nationalities).
  • We're one of the top-ranked nutrition websites in the world on Trustpilot and have strong Glassdoor ratings.

Our culture

At Diet Doctor, we aim to always live our four company values: trustworthiness, simplicity, inspiration, and goodness. 

Our goal is to make the world a better place by empowering people everywhere to dramatically improve their health.

We believe building a team of top performers — who live by our values and get great things done fast — will significantly increase our ability to make rapid progress toward our purpose. 

That’s why we're passionate about building a world-class team. Few things in life are as exciting and rewarding as working toward meaningful change alongside other like-minded people. 

The challenge

For Diet Doctor to take the next step on its journey, we need to expand our editorial team in Stockholm to include an Executive Editor. In this senior-level position, you’ll lead a team of top-notch editorial professionals — based in North America and Stockholm, Sweden. Diet Doctor’s editorial team is full of team players with a variety of skill sets and strengths. You’ll also report directly to Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt, CEO of Diet Doctor — and oversee and create top-quality written content for Diet Doctor.

You’ll be responsible for directing the editorial team toward creating world-class guides and content — and to collaborate with other teams, such as Growth Marketing, to ensure that our content has the best possible chance of ranking high on Google for SEO. On a daily basis, you’ll oversee the editorial workflow and help ensure that your direct reports have what they need to get their tasks done well. You’ll lead meetings, edit copy, and help to foster the skills of those on your team. 

What you'll do

  • Oversee a team of editorial professionals; help them to grow, flourish, and get great results.
  • Top edit evidence-based guides, articles, product copy, video scripts, etc.
  • Help to shape our messaging. At Diet Doctor, we want to make it simple for users to improve their health — and that often starts with how we write and present information. Your work will directly impact our style and tone.
  • Work closely with the Content Manager (who reports to you) to develop and implement editorial and promotional calendars, along with best practices to optimize the creation process.
  • Work closely with Growth Marketing to ensure the editorial team is SEO-focused.
  • Strategize how guides, our most important editorial product, can be optimized to add maximal value for the user.
  • Keep the team focused on the most important company priorities and initiatives. 
  • Set KPIs for editorial products — and help your team to stay on top of reaching these goals.
  • Provide inspiration to your team; get them excited about their work by recognizing their strengths/accomplishments, providing encouragement, and giving constructive feedback. 

What's in it for you?

  • Meaningful work: The opportunity to work alongside a team of hardworking editorial experts while having autonomy over a wide range of highly impactful responsibilities. An added plus? Diet Doctor’s mission is to help people everywhere to dramatically improve their health through lifestyle changes. 
  • Meaningful relationships: Be part of a driven, ambitious, yet kind culture filled with people who want to do good in the world. We try to optimize our teams' happiness by keeping track of employee satisfaction (Officevibe), using a minimalist workflow process (Kanban), minimizing meetings, and allowing for long uninterrupted blocks of work time.
  • Rapid growth:  We'll give you opportunities to make impactful decisions, while also providing the support you need to do great things and learn fast. We encourage growth and the company will cover the cost of courses or conferences you want to attend. 
  • Great compensation: We offer a competitive salary, overtime pay, office bonuses, and the opportunity to own a meaningful part of the company through our employee-stock-offering plan (no vesting period, and you're able to keep the shares as long as you want). Additionally, we provide relocation and visa support, free courses and books, free dinner if working late, and access to our company apartment in central Stockholm.
