Editor In Chief

The editor-in-chief manages our team of story editors. They oversee the editorial process, making sure story editors adhere to best practices and interact with writers in a timely and welcoming manner. As the head editor, the editor in chief acts as a bridge between the editorial team and the rest of the organization. They also recruit, interview, and onboard new story editors.

Editor

The editor will work with individual writers to tell their personal stories of post-traumatic growth. They help develop the story told by each writer, offer advice and encouragement, and set deadlines for completion and publication. An excellent editor and communicator with a passion for storytelling would be best suited for this position.

Web Strategist

The web strategist acts as a website developer for our WordPress domain. They use their skills in digital marketing, Google Analytics, SEO, and UX/UI design to inform strategic decisions about the contents of our website. Experience with WordPress, HTML, and digital marketing is preferred.

Website Manager

The website manager oversees front- and back-end web operations, developing content and additional pages for the website as our organization grows. They optimize the website for goal conversions and SEO. Like the web strategist, experience with WordPress, HTML, and digital marketing is preferred. Basic skills in Photoshop and/or Canva are welcome but not required.

Communications Consultant

The communications consultant will critique and then rework our existing internal communications. They’re tasked with creating a comprehensive communications strategy for our remote team. This position is perfect for an innovative and independent short-term volunteer who has experience with managing remote teams.

Their main responsibilities include: coordinating integrated marketing campaigns across our digital channels (web, email, and social media) and planning partnerships with organizations and influencers who align with our mission.

Social Media Content Creator

Using graphics, videos, GIFs, etc., they transform our stories into bite-sized content for social media platforms.

Social Media Community Manager
