What We are Looking for

As an Editor at All About Cookies, you’ll be responsible for crafting high-quality B2C content that helps millions of readers make smarter, easier decisions about digital security and consumer tech solutions monthly.

You’ll also use your understanding of SEO best practices to ensure all our content is optimized for ranking and monetization.

You will work closely with freelance and in-house writers to mentor them on writing best practices while providing constructive feedback. You should have strong writing skills in the event that content needs to be substantially rewritten or replaced, and feel comfortable researching and testing a wide range of digital security products. You should be comfortable working with basic HTML in a CMS. Knowledge of SEO best practices, including keyword research and on-page optimization, is ideal.

  • Ensure content is accurate and clear to the reader while following SEO best practices
  • Demonstrate subject-matter expertise across digital security and consumer technology topics
  • Work with, mentor, and provide constructive feedback to writers ensuring they deliver their best work
  • Ensure all content adheres to our style, sourcing, and compliance guidelines

  • Serve as an ambassador of All About Cookies as needed
  • Grow and foster the All About Cookies brand as a top destination for digital security and tech recommendations and information
