Archive Job Description

Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web.

We’re looking for a Managing Editor to help us tell compelling and insightful stories about design, the modern web, and the no code movement in a way that spreads awareness and affinity about Webflow.

About the role

  • Location: SF or US remote
  • Full-time

As a Managing Editor, you’ll …

  • Drive and manage production for the Webflow blog, including editing, staging, and publishing articles (and ebooks) from freelancers, agencies, content managers, and employees.
  • Plan and maintain the editorial calendar, triage incoming blog requests, and seek new contributors and voices from our passionate community.
  • Assign stories and set the editorial strategy with the Director of Content.
  • Collaborate with our Organic Growth team on executing our SEO strategy for the Webflow blog.
  • Work with stakeholders (Organic Growth, Product Marketing, Community Marketing, agencies) to ensure content supports campaigns, goals, and launches.
  • Ensure the quality of our posts remains consistently high.
  • Request design assets from our Brand Studio team for posts.
  • Coordinate the distribution of blog posts with our Social Media and Growth teams.
  • Work with our copywriter to maintain and refine the style guide for our voice and tone.

That said, these responsibilities are just the start! At Webflow, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly. And this isn’t just a philosophical bent: we actually give you 4 hours a week (10% of the work week) to pursue passion projects outside of your role responsibilities.

About you

You’ll thrive as a Managing Editor if you:

  • Have experience managing a content operation at a fast-growing company with a mix of full-timers, stakeholders, freelancers, and agencies.
  • Understand how to produce content for multiple audiences and how to make a piece of content more engaging or creative.
  • Have experience using a modern CMS (obviously ours is in Webflow, but if you don’t know it we can teach you how to use it).
  • Can quickly turn around an outline or an edit when needed (and you can pitch in and rewrite on occasion).
  • Have developed editorial processes that make everyone more productive and effective.
  • Are a self-starter who can deeply collaborate with others and communicate proactively.
  • Have a growth mindset, a willingness to own problems, comfort with ambiguity, and a healthy balance of humility and confidence.
  • Bonus: Are interested in design and the no code movement.

If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of the role’s requirements.

About us

At Webflow, we believe that our success will be defined not only by what we do — but also by how and why we do it. So, here is the Webflow “why” and our “how”:

Our dual missions — one for the world, one for us

  1. For the world: To empower everyone to create for the web and spark an unprecedented wave of digital innovation.
  2. For ourselves: Lead fulfilling, impactful lives.

Our core behaviors (how we act)

  1. Start with customers
  2. Practice extraordinary kindness
  3. Be radically candid
  4. Move intentionally fast
  5. Just fix it
  6. Lead by serving others
  7. Dream big

Our commitments to you

  • We’ll pay you! This is a full-time, salaried position that includes equity
  • We’ll invest in your physical and mental well-being with health, dental, and vision benefits and a monthly stipend for health and wellness expenses
  • We’ll pay you to take a vacation … seriously. We’ll give you a $1,000 bonus for taking your first vacation with us that is more than 5 days
  • We offer flexible parental leave
  • We provide remote employees with the equipment they need to create a great remote work environment
  • We will offer you the support you need to help you grow as an impactful Managing Editor and a human being 

Ready to apply?

If you share our values and enthusiasm for empowering the world, we’d love to review your application! We promise we do take the time and care to review every application we receive. However, as much as we wish we could interview everyone who submits an application, we cannot guarantee an interview or feedback due to the unprecedented volume of applications we are receiving today. We are rooting for you, and hope you do consider applying.

Note: You’ll need valid U.S. work authorization to join us.
