  • Work with the Chief Editor to ensure content quality and improvement across all channels, sourcing or trialing new editors when necessary.
  • Contribute to the implementation of Notion and other project management initiatives that support scaling teams and opening more channels.
  • Manage budgets and tracking profitability for new and existing channels.
  • Leveraging the reach and teams from existing channels and identify content opportunities for opening new channels.
