Assistant Managing Editor

We are looking for a dynamic, experienced Assistant Managing Editor with outstanding editorial planning skills to create, edit, and manage copy.

Are you someone who wants to make the world a better place? Do you want to create content that helps people, instead of selling them another product they don’t need?

Our mission

Diet Doctor was founded by Andreas Eenfeldt (M.D.) with the long-term goal of empowering people everywhere to dramatically improve their health. More than one billion people suffer from health issues related to type 2 diabetes and obesity, for which they're often personally blamed and rarely given the support they deserve. We aim to change that.

We’re fully funded by our members, so we don't need to show any ads, sell any products, or take any industry money. This also means that we have zero external investors, and are instead owned by the 40+ people who work here – and we offer all employees the possibility to acquire a stake in the company regularly.

What have we achieved so far?

  • Profitability for years, self-funded, no VC investment, and lots of cash in the bank.
  • The largest keto and low-carb site in the world.
  • About 5 million monthly visits, 66K paying members and 40+ full-time co-workers.

What you'll do

  • Manage day-to-day content to enable the Managing Editor to work on high-level priorities.
  • Work effectively and cooperatively with a dispersed international team of writers to assign and manage their articles, guides, and projects. Create, edit, fact-check, lay out, and proofread content.
  • Identify and report new content ideas, concepts, and improvements. Assist with content strategy and implementation.  
  • Work closely with the Managing Editor to develop and implement editorial, marketing, and promotion calendars, and best practices to optimize the creation process (SEO, style guide, publishing handbook, etc.).
  • Write and proof copy for other departments (call-to-actions, landing pages, newsletter copy, recipes, etc.) as needed.

What's in it for you?

  • Meaningful work: The opportunity to shape creative content at Diet Doctor — promoting world-class content that could dramatically improve the health of a billion people.
  • Meaningful relationships: Be part of a massively driven, ambitious, and kind culture filled with people who want to do good in the world. We try to optimize 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: You would be our first Assistant Managing Editor with big opportunities to take on challenging tasks and grow. We'll give you lots of responsibility but also the support you need to do great things and learn fast. We urge you to keep growing and the company will happily pay for courses or conferences you want to attend. 
  • Great compensation: Market-level salary, overtime pay, office bonus, and owning a meaningful part of the company through our employee stock offering (you've not heard of a better stock program).

Who you are

  • You have high standards, a strong work ethic, and superb writing and editing skills. You balance creativity with speed and accuracy.
  • 6+ years experience high-volume writing, editing, fact-checking, and project management at a major media outlet.
  • Native English speaker with excellent verbal and written communication, multitasking, and project management skills.
  • Love editing and writing fantastic content that’s both simple and inspiring. You excel at writing for SEO.
  • Thrive in a fast-paced environment. You’re a thoughtful and thorough self-starter, as well as a detail-oriented team player.
  • Belief in the importance of our values: trustworthiness, simplicity, inspiration, and goodness.
  • Degree in Journalism, English, or similar. WordPress and design skills a plus.
