Overview

AE

 

 

The mission of the Angels & Entrepreneurs Network is to inform individual investors of the rewards of startup investing. We provide education, guidance, and support to help our members make the best investment decisions possible. We connect them with like-minded individuals through our online network. We give them direct access to the entrepreneurs that we believe will be running future unicorns – startups worth $1 billion or more. We walk our members through every step of the investing process, from discovery to due diligence to exit strategies.

 

Angels & Entrepreneurs was the first of its kind – and remains one of the fastest-growing and most well-known publishing subsidiaries in this space (if not the most).

 

Our team is looking for a dedicated, driven Associate Editor to support the editorial team. The right candidate will have a demonstrated ability to create and improve editorial content under tight deadlines.

Writing and publishing unique, impactful content is the main component of this role; however, the successful candidate will have other tasks, like editing/proofreading, social media, site moderation, and more as needed.

 

Here are a few of the key traits we’re looking for in a candidate:

  • The ability to generate bold, exciting, and original written copy
  • Excellent proofreading and problem-solving skills
  • The ability to work independently and make sound, confident decisions when appropriate – while still being open to collaboration and teamwork
  • Innate curiosity; a thirst for knowledge – the best copy comes from this!
  • Motivation to grow and develop as a writer and marketer
  • Knowledge (or at least enthusiasm) about the startup world
  • Organization, attention to detail, and the ability to monitor and meet deadlines

 

Here are a few reasons you might be looking for us:

 

  • Tremendous potential for growth in this role
  • A positive, entertaining, and efficient work environment
  • Competitive pay, benefits, etc.
  • The opportunity to work with startup founders on the bleeding edge of technological innovation
  • Access to some of the world’s top angel investing experts, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs and more
  • A creative atmosphere where great ideas are rewarded

Responsibilities

  • Write, edit, proof, and publish weekly email updates for three subscription investment services.
  • Manage portfolios and legal backup for subscription investment services.
  • Take ownership of member website, writing and editing copy and content for each service to make sure it is correct, up to date, easy to use, and answers common member questions; write web copy.
  • Support editorial team with writing/editing/proofing as needed.
  • Work with a Managing Editor and Franchise Director to:
    • Update, edit, aggregate content, and eventually concept and write investor reports, both for promotional use (for new subscribers) and as extra fulfillment (for current subscribers).
    • Help facilitate the launch of new promotions and new products through research, brainstorming, and content generation.
    • Write and edit content to support various marketing efforts for their subscription newsletters.
    • Research, write, edit opt-in reports, premium reports, welcome/retention gauntlets, renewal efforts, and other special messaging.

Qualifications

  • Bachelor’s degree in Business, Finance, English, Communications, Journalism, or Humanities desired – but qualified candidates with any Bachelor’s may apply.
  • Willingness to relocate to Baltimore, MD and work in our offices in historic Mount Vernon – at the time of this writing, we have a hybrid model (3 days in office each week, 2 days from home).
  • 2-3 years writing/editing experience preferred.
  • Excellent oral/written communication skills.
