Outbrain is looking for an Editor and Writer to join our content team. We are looking for an exceptional writer and editor who is organized, quick, hands-on, and experienced in delivering excellent content on deadline. This candidate should have experience with all forms of writing — CTAs, web copy, blogs, articles, case studies, white papers, video scripts, technical writing, infographics, and speeches. Ghostwriting experience is an added plus. Additionally, this candidate should have a solid understanding of hot-button topics and trends within digital media, AdTech, MarTech, B2B Marketing, and experience writing for personas.


The ideal candidate is someone who brings creative ideas to the table but is also willing to execute on others’ creative visions. It is important to note that we aren’t looking for someone who will just churn out SEO-driven copy (although there will be some of that too). Nor are we interested in candidates who use writing to primarily further their own platform. We want someone who is a true wordsmith and editor (and enjoys this role) who can work with multiple global stakeholders to deliver on some of our 2017 plans.


Outbrain has a big vision of becoming one of the world’s top destination brands for marketers. As the world’s largest content discovery platform, serving over 200 billion content recommendations a month around the globe and delivering results for the thousands of brands and publishers using our products everyday, we think we have a pretty good shot.


Added pluses for this position are basic design skills (Photoshop, InDesign, Canva, Camtasia), as you may occasionally need to create creative assets for blog posts in a pinch. Additionally, experience with WordPress and SEO best practices.


What We’re Looking For:


  • Ability to research and write exceptional copy of all forms.

  • Ability to quickly comprehend personas and create content targeted to them.

  • Organized, self-motivated, and efficient.

  • Exceptional attention to detail.

  • Experience with adhering to editorial calendars.

  • Experience with WordPress.

  • Experience using Google Analytics to measure content performance.

  • Someone who doesn’t mind getting their hands dirty.

  • Storytelling skills.

  • Creative eye.

  • Ability to weave a narrative out of new events and/or data.

  • Team player.

  • Thrives in change — adaptive and flexible to a quickly changing work environment.




  • Minimum 5 years of experience in a professional writing/editing position

  • Knowledge of AdTech, MarTech and a keen understanding of the digital landscape

  • Highly organized and skilled at project management

  • Portfolio of both short-form and long-form copy


If you meet our requirements and want to join a down-to-earth, supportive, and casual work environment, we’d love to meet you.


Please submit your cover letter, a writing sample, and your resume to be considered for this position.
