Senior Features Editor

Storia is looking for a Moscow based Features Editor, who is ready to blend into our international team and create his own team providing viral editorial content for us. We are launching Storia in the Russian market with iOS, Android and Web at the end of March. 

Ideal candidate must be deeply immersed in the Internet culture, recognized as a social media and blogging expert in Russia and have experience as an editor. You will leverage their bipartisan relationships—perhaps gained via working as an Internet media editor —to create editorial viral content and to build an in-house yong, dynamic editorial team as well as to recruit bloggers and celebs to publish their viral content on Storia.  

You are to be good at finding new tendencies and intuitively know the right person to contact about writing at the right time. You are to work hand-in-hand with the editorial team and to apply your network of authors and writers of viral content. Besides, you will work with the bloggers and their social media editors to onboard them to Storia, come up with the right ideas, and trouble-shoot. And to follow up by making sure they’ve had the best experience possible on the platform — and think of Storia first when they have something they want to say.  


Key Responsibilities: 

  • Create editorial content, attract talents to create viral content that will drive consumers to share and interact;  
  • Develop innovative and integrated editorial content strategy, hold it on and work with concrete content plans; 
  • Coordinate planning and execution of social media campaigns; cultivate and grow online audiences through strong community management;  
  • Work with journalists, editors, bloggers and  publishers; 
  • Tap into trends and events to maximise impact of digital viral content; 
  • Designing and creating engaging written and graphic viral content for Storia and its social media channels and communities; searching for new interesting stories and updating Storia’s Discovery section; 
  • Documenting and evangelizing best practices for interesting stories on Storia.  


Desired Experience and Skills:

  • Experience in working as an Internet media editor is preferable; 
  • Experience in working with partners (bloggers, celebrities and media); 
  • Ability to deliver content in the form that would be interesting to the users; 
  • Deep knowledge of, and experience using, social media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Medium, Tumblr, Pinterest and more; 
  • Previous experience merging CRM and social strategy across multiple media verticals; 
  • Fundamental knowledge of social advertising opportunities across the major social platforms; 
  • A sophisticated, authoritative and naturally engaging style of writing; strong communication and presentation skills;  
  • Strong organizational skills and ability to meet tight deadlines; 
  • Fluent Russian and English.
