APW is hiring! And I am super excited about it, because this time we’re hiring for an editorial role, AKA, for my department. I’m always delighted when we get to announce that we’re hiring (which is reasonably rare, given that we’re a self-funded small team). But a new job opening means that we’re going to get to meet someone awesome and add them to our team.
Over the past year, APW has really grown… which mostly means we’ve become less understaffed and finally gotten to sleep more. We’ve continued to diversify, moved into office spaces in East Oakland, and generally grown into our current status as one of the largest wedding publishers online. (WHAT? You guys did that!) The team here at APW is about as good as anyone could ask for, and I am thrilled that we get to add another member to our roster. And that that person could be you.
At least, it could be you if you thrive on precision and meeting deadlines, because this particular time, that’s what we need.
This job is part time, between 10 and 15 hours a week, and while we’d love to hire someone local to Oakland, California, people working remotely are invited to apply. And as always, a special shout out to WOC. We’re always looking to add your perspectives to our team.
APW is hiring a part-time assistant to help our content team run our editorial calendar. This is a great long-term, flexible freelance position, for someone seeking a consistent (and fun) office a few days a week. We’re looking for someone who is great with deadlines, detail-oriented, a fast worker (and learner), and savvy with Internet research. This person should generally like the world of Internet publishing and have a soft spot for weddings. We’re looking for someone in the Bay Area, but are open to remote U.S.-based hires, if you’re an outstanding fit.
WHAT THIS JOB IS ABOUT
You’d be the right hand to our editor-in-chief, making APW’s content do it (and do it well.) Duties include: making sure every post is checked, double-checked, and triple-checked; researching cute crop-top wedding dresses (#bestjobever); optimizing posts for Google; writing articles; and making our EIC’s life a little bit easier. This is a part-time job, and will probably stay that way. So if you’re looking for a gig with flexibility, this may be it.
WHAT YOU’D DO
APW publishes two posts a day, five days a week. Sometimes more. Your job would be to support the work of the EIC in making that happen. You’d be responsible for:
WHO YOU ARE
Here are some things that should describe you:
Here are some things that might describe you:
A Practical Wedding is the web’s largest independently owned wedding publisher, serving feminism, fun, and glitter to the wedding space since 2008. We’re an entirely self-funded company that runs on advertising dollars. Our all-women team is based mostly out of our East Oakland office, with some remote staff. Our office works hard (in emergencies, we hunker down and crush deadlines), but also we prioritize healthy lives and making it home for dinner (almost every night) and out to a dance class (some days). We are unapologetically intersectional feminists, and we are constantly working to make the wedding space inclusive and celebratory of all love.
THE FINE PRINT
Location: Oakland, CA, working in our office in East Oakland, or Remote
