Description:

Aging Media is a growing boutique business-to-business media (B2B) company that covers the $7.1 trillion business of aging.

We are seeking a high-energy editor to launch a brand new publication covering the rapidly growing hospice and palliative care industry. This is currently a $20+ billion a year industry and will only grow as the baby boomer population continues to age.

You will lead our coverage of the hospice industry, from breaking news to in-depth original stories that analyze trends. You will develop the editorial direction, monitor your beat, cultivate relationships with stakeholders, hunt down important stories and collaborate with your team.

This is a unique opportunity to work with well-funded and dedicated entrepreneurs who have already built four of the leading B2B publications in aging services. While we prefer that the candidate is based in Chicago, we welcome remote workers with a proven track record of success and relevant experience to hospice and palliative care.

What you can bring:

  • Proven writing, reporting and editing skills
  • Ability to interpret and analyze business concepts, industry trends and major news stories
  • Ability to build relationships with important sources and report on complex subjects
  • Strong digital news knowledge
  • Deadline-oriented time management skills, with the ability to turn around stories on tight deadlines
  • Bachelor’s degree or better in journalism, English or similar field
  • At least 5+ years experience writing, reporting and/or editing in the healthcare or related field.

Benefits:

  • Competitive compensation
  • Health, dental, vision benefits
  • Short-term disability and 401k match
  • Dynamic, fun and hardworking environment
