Job Description

​​About the Role:

Hims & Hers is looking for a Sr. Editor who is nimble, collaborative, and passionate about helping people find credible and authoritative knowledge to help them feel better. This Sr. Editor will primarily guide the blog editorial for Hims in the sex and hair health categories.

​​About You: 

You’re up to the challenge of impressing readers while also knowing how to dance with Google’s web crawlers. Your editing is strategic and tactful, and you really care about making sure every reader feels taken care of. You want every article to succeed and you’re obsessed with optimizations to achieve SEO goals. 

You’re adept at keeping up with hard deadlines, making pivots on the fly and are as committed as we (and our writers) are to taking sometimes complex topics and distilling them into simple, easy-to-understand narratives. People are looking for answers to often uncomfortable questions, and we want them to trust that they can get solid, credible information from us, with no judgment. We also want to make sure Google recognizes our information as credible, valuable, and essential for our readers. Alongside the SEO Growth Managers, the editor will be responsible for elevating our content both in the eyes of Google and our readers. 

These articles will be most peoples’ first touchpoint with the brand, so smart, accessible and engaging content is key to starting that journey on the right foot.

You Will:

  • Edit compelling, accessible, authoritative content across the Hims & Hers blogs consistent with content briefs and medical research packets provided for each assignment by our in-house editorial and SEO teams. 
  • Ensure that articles include a mix of footnotes and reference lists, and follow a comprehensive SEO report (Experience with Frase, Clearscope, Ahrefs, etc. heavily preferred).
  • Always be looking for ways to improve our editorial workflow to achieve targets. 
  • Make sure we’re achieving SEO excellence while maintaining high editorial quality. 
  • Get buy-in from stakeholders on tactics to achieve our editorial and authority goals, including coordinating rewrites with MD reviewers and our legal department. 
  • Be the advocate for brand tone and establish editorial guidelines to inform our style from a high level.
  • Always put the reader first: edit for the customer. What do they need to know to feel better? How can we provide them with rock-solid information that will enable them to trust us as a brand? What unique value can Hims provide that other publishers cannot? Whenever possible, we strive for a unique perspective. 
  • Identify new opportunities for existing content to improve SEO performance.

You Have:

  • 7+ years of editorial experience, preferably for both brands and publishers, preference for publishers with a strong SEO strategy.
  • Excellent time management and ability to meet weekly deadlines.
  • Proven track record editing excellent content about complex topics. 
  • Strong creative, conversational editing style with a passion for good authorial voice.
  • Experience using insights and strategic thinking to shape priorities.
  • Experience driving complex projects in a fast-paced environment.

Our Benefits (there are more but here are some highlights):

  • Competitive salary & equity compensation for full-time roles
  • Unlimited PTO, company holidays, and quarterly mental health days
  • Comprehensive health benefits including medical, dental & vision, and parental leave
  • Employee Stock Purchase Program (ESPP)
  • Employee discounts on hims & hers & Apostrophe online products
  • 401k benefits with employer matching contribution
  • Offsite team retreats
