Lifestyle Content Editor


 

Are you into the ideas, people and places fuelling city cycling culture around the world? Do you believe in the idea of “Bike to Life in Style”, everyday.

We need the connected and the curious. The storyhunters and producers. As Lifestyle Content Editor, you’re going to collaborate with a committed team to conceive, pitch and write articles about the city cycling lifestyle for Model Cyclist. This could be affairs, brands, culture or the experience.

  • Rock-solid writing chops and a keen eye for detail
  • A strong editorial foundation in fact-checking, research and copyediting
  • Ability to conceive and produce shareable stories with good linking strategy for SEO
  • Working knowledge of WordPress (and basic HTML would be a plus)
 

Product Curator


 

Do you have an eye for design and a keen sense of style? Can you effortlessly pull together an outfit that takes you from bike to life in style?

We need a fashion-forward city cyclist to keep our audience in-the-know with the most stylish, thoughtfully designed and crafted apparel, accessories and other city cycling lifestyle products. If it’s for the look, for the lifestyle or for the bike, the Product Curator needs to find it to feature on Model Cyclist.

  • Strong fashion and editorial sense to curate new finds, create lookbooks and product guides
  • An ability to research and write concise, compelling product descriptions
  • Manage Pinterest account
  • Working knowledge of WordPress (and basic HTML would be a plus)
 

Community Growth Specialist


 

“Hi! We think you’re doing some amazing things for city cycling. Can we talk?” On day one, this is how our emails started to people we wanted to interview for Model Cyclist.

We need the Community Growth Specialist to be our voice on social media. It’s a blend of getting our stories out there on our social media channels and engaging with city cyclists connected to Model Cyclist or who we find in the online community. We actually don’t care what platform people engage with us on–we want to be where they are with the right content and context.

  • A strong editorial foundation to be able to draw stories from our lifestyle and product content as well as curate relevant city cycling articles or videos from other sources
  • Create content specific for social media using tools like Buffer, Adobe Spark, free image websites
