Can You Believe It?! it's a Freelance job

You're probably not one to take a job just to make your friends jealous, but in case you are, CMD is hiring a Freelance Managing Editor - Tech in Portland, OR, USA.


One of the original and largest agencies born in the Pacific Northwest, we forge brands that live at the intersection of innovation and culture. We are 125 storytellers representing a wide spectrum of disciplines but united by one vision: Create. Great. Together. Each day, we put our values into action while expertly adapting to changing landscapes and priorities. We value equity and diversity because we believe having different perspectives produces the best creative work and fosters an open-minded workplace.

The main function of the managing editor role is to ensure the consistent delivery of results-driven technical content for a high-tech Fortune 100 client. We are looking for a strategic thinker who is also an experienced editor and writer who can balance a workload of leading a team of writers, conducting research, setting strategy, and tackling heads-down writing assignments. The best candidate is experienced at developing technology-focused content toward developer and IT leadership audiences, messaging for products and solutions, and online content geared toward generating qualified leads. You are well-versed in talking to and extracting insights from subject matter experts (SMEs) and translating deep technical data into relatable stories. Given the health crisis, our office is currently closed and our team is working remotely.
