Job description

Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers people to create incredible experiences for the web, without coding. 

We’re looking for an editor to help us make the Webflow blog a leading web design and development publication, increasing awareness, adoption, and retention through inspiring, helpful content.  

About the role 

 

  • San Francisco (remote considered)
  • Full-time

 

As the editor of the Webflow blog, you’ll … 

  • Help define and oversee implementation of the editorial mission and calendar for the Webflow blog and ebook library
  • Manage and grow a pool of talented freelance, community, and internal writers
  • Elevate the incredible creative work of the Webflow community through compelling stories and informative best-practices content
  • Work with the marketing team to improve distribution of Webflow blog content through SEO, manual promotion, and content partnerships
  • Support distribution of content focused on the work of teams like Product Marketing, Growth Marketing, Education, Product Design, Community, and People
  • Ensure the quality and usefulness of our content through your editorial acumen and content strategy chops, through everything from high-level planning to detailed developmental and line editing

That said, these role responsibilities are just the start!  At Webflow, we encouraged you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly. 

And this isn’t just a philosophical bent: we actually give you 4 hours a week (10% of the work week) to tackle passion projects directly related to Webflow. 

About you 

You’ll thrive as the editor of the Webflow blog if you:

  • Have (at least) strong working knowledge of the web design and development industry and its principles, best practices, and core concerns
  • Are familiar with Chicago, AP, and/or Yahoo! style guides
  • Can quickly internalize and ensure adherence to brand voice, tone, style, and messaging guidelines
  • Understand that content quality is vital, but also needs rigorous distribution effort 
  • Can spot a mangled sentence, typo, or unnecessary double-space-after-period from at least one mile away 
  • Have a bone to pick with at least one phrase in this job description

However, even if you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that meeting just 50% of a role’s requirements puts you in the running. 

About us 

At Webflow, we believe that our success will not only be defined by what we do — but by how and why we do it. So, here is the Webflow “why” and our “how”: 

Our dual missions — one for the world, one for us

  1. For the world: To empower everyone to create for the web and spark an unprecedented wave of digital innovation.
  2. For ourselves: Lead fulfilling, impactful lives.

Our core behaviors (how we act)

  1. Start with customers
  2. Practice extraordinary kindness
  3. Be radically candid
  4. Move uncomfortably fast
  5. Just fix it
  6. Lead by serving others
  7. Dream big

Our commitments to you 

  • We’ll pay you! This is a full-time, salaried position that includes equity
  • We’ll invest in your physical and mental well-being with health, dental, and vision benefits and a monthly stipend for health and wellness expenses 
  • We’ll pay you to take a vacation … seriously. We’ll give you a $1,000 bonus for taking your first vacation with us that is more than 5 days 
  • We offer flexible parental leave for moms and dads
  • We provide remote employees with the equipment they need to create a great remote work environment 
  • We will offer you the support you need to help you grow as an impactful Managing Editor and a healthy human being 

Ready to apply?

If you share our values and our enthusiasm for empowering the world, we’d love to hear from you!

Note: You'll need valid U.S. work authorization to join us.
