Miami, FL, USA Virtual Req #4
Recurrent Ventures Inc. is an innovative digital media company that is challenging the media landscape with its proprietary approach. Its best-in-class brands like Popular Science, Domino, Outdoor Life, The Drive, Donut, Dwell, Task & Purpose and more, engage a combined audience of more than 60 million monthly visitors. Initially founded in 2018, the portfolio rapidly expanded and today we have more than 15 publishing brands across automotive, home, outdoors, science, technology, and military verticals. Recurrent Ventures is virtual first, with headquarters in Miami and offices in New York, San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
The Drive is one of the internet’s most-visited automotive outlets, serving nearly 10 million passionate readers a month with the latest industry news and analysis, culture stories, new car reviews, must-read features, and DIY advice.
The Drive is seeking an experienced Editor to lead our daily news operation with a focus on wide-ranging output, original reporting, and our signature intelligent and irreverent voice.
As a key member of The Drive’s editorial leadership, this editor will plan and line edit the majority of our daily news content to ensure rigorous, creative coverage of the automotive world at large. The ideal News Editor will possess a sharp understanding of current industry product cycles, a hunger for breaking news, familiarity with internet car culture in particular, and an awareness of traffic trends and competitor positions. Areas of focus include product announcements, electrification, motorsports (F1, NASCAR, and IndyCar), viral social media moments, automotive history, transportation policy, technical deep-dives, and more.
The Editor must demonstrate the ability to assemble a comprehensive, timely, and flexible coverage plan reflecting these priorities with an eye on audience growth. Experience with traditional reporting techniques – filing public records requests, pulling court documents, cold-calling sources – is strongly preferred. The Editor will directly manage staff writers and contractors, enforcing deadlines and providing actionable feedback. As time allows, they will also be called upon to contribute across other content areas, including car reviews and service journalism.
The Editor will report to the site’s Deputy Editor.
