Editorial Associate

Seeking: an analytically-minded book nerd who reads more than anyone they know
 

Book of the Month is looking to hire an Editorial Associate to assist the editorial team on selecting and promoting the best new books to our members and media audience. If you are a smart, driven person looking to help readers discover new books they will love, then this could be the job for you.

This is a great next job for candidates with 3 years in marketing or publicity at a book publisher who want to gain experience in the consumer-facing aspects of the book business and are interested in technology-driven growth companies.

 

Job responsibilities include: 

  • Track and obtain relevant upcoming manuscripts for BOTM consideration and assist in title selection
  • Organize and input contacts, sales numbers, and other data into spreadsheets for review
  • Assist in content production, including sourcing contributors, drafting copy
  • Assist in book production, merchandising, and other processes
  • Coordinate with marketing, creative, and product teams to produce editorial assets
  • Support the Editorial Director in publisher and author relations

 

About you:

  • Three years of experience in book publishing, editorial, or a related field.
  • Avid reader. You have a deep knowledge of contemporary fiction, authors, and successful commercial literature (even within genres you personally find less compelling).  You are able to read at least three books every week.
  • Well-developed book taste.  You are equally passionate about which books you love and about understanding which books our members will love, and can balance both sensibilities. 
  • Strong communicator. You assert your opinions strongly and clearly.
  • Exceptional writer. You will assist in the editing and drafting of editorial content, so strong writing skills are key.
  • Ambitious. BOTM is a growth-oriented company; this position is fast-paced and we are seeking a candidate who is career-minded.  
  • Analytical skills. An ability to do math and feel comfortable in spreadsheets is required.
  • Presentation skills.  You are great with Powerpoint, Excel and similar programs.
