Job Description

Our vision at SmartRecruiters is to connect people to jobs at scale. We want to be the source of truth and inspiration for all Talent Acquisition leaders across the globe. Our editors have major impact in this mission as they own the creation and curation of editorial content and they broadcast our message to HR leaders around the world. We want millions of people reading your work so your ability to translate our message into meaningful dialogue between us and influencers in both HR and business will be critical to our collective success in this endeavour.

The best candidates for this role are typically editorial or content managers with experience in the technology start-up space.

As soon as you land at SmartRecruiters, we’ll be relying on your expertise to:

  • Develop and conceptualize the overall editorial strategy
  • Plan and drive the production of all user-facing editorial, including newsletters and social media campaigns
  • Measure and evaluate the performance of editorial content
  • Create and manage our new Hiring Success blog
  • Create an Influencer program – this will include analysts, HR Technology and Talent Acquisition Leaders
  • Maximize press exposure – write or co-author articles (Forbes, etc)
  • Own the relationships with top journalists (both HR and business)
  • Own our social channels globally


Before you get here, this is who you are and what you’ve done:

  • Minimum 2 years of experience in the PR/Journalism space – although more experience would also be great
  • Demonstrated skills in creation of high-quality content (i.e. not “SEO text”)
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English is a must
  • You are creative, resourceful, and highly detail-oriented
  • A good understanding of the underlying business case for content marketing
  • You’re tech savvy and embrace new technologies
  • Able to write scientific reports / white papers
  • Ability to build a partnership program/ recruit guest-writers

You like to get your hands dirty and produce quality work with minimal supervision. Ideally you’ve got a track record of success in this space. Education is nice but drive, ambition, and dedication trump diplomas here.

You will join us during arguably the most interesting stage of our company. This is an opportunity for you to take on full ownership of a key area and bring it to life. Your work will have a direct impact on getting the product off the ground.

We’re an international team with offices in Berlin, Krakow, London, Spokane, and San Francisco.

  • Contract: Full-time (40 hours/week)
  • Starting Date: ASAP
  • Location: Berlin Mitte
  • Salary: Based on experience
