We are seeking a high-energy editor to help us lead coverage of the dynamic skilled nursing and long term care industry for Skilled Nursing News. This is currently a $160+ billion a year industry and will continue to evolve as the baby boomer population continues to age.

This is a unique opportunity to work with well-funded and dedicated entrepreneurs who have already built five of the leading B2B publications in aging services. While we are based in Chicago, we are open to remote candidates in the United States and are looking for the best fit for the role.

Proven writing, reporting and editing skills
Ability to interpret and analyze business concepts, industry trends and major news stories
