Three Ships partners with brands to expand their digital channels and add incremental customers.
Our approach to digital marketing is supported by years of success in creating performance-driven content, media investment management, and conversion rate optimization.
We love digital marketing and helping consumers make better buying decisions.
About The Role
We are seeking a Performance Editor with excellent editorial and organizational skills to be part of our growing team on the home services and home improvement side of the business.
You’ll be responsible for delivering publication-ready content that is on-time, fully optimized for SEO and meets our marketing goals. You also enjoy writing; you may help create content, concepts and articles.
You will have the opportunity to not only manage production of cutting-edge content, but you will also learn to report on the performance of your articles to determine the impact of your work. You maintain a high bar of excellence for each piece of content that gets your stamp of approval.
You’ll partner closely with leaders in our SEO, paid media, CRO, and technology practices to build our brands, grow audience and meet business objectives for our content.
As a Performance Editor, you will:
Ensure we have a strong understanding of what it takes to win organic search on our targeted keywords. (Who are our competitors? What is Google rewarding? What do readers need to know?)
Oversee content production – translate this knowledge into clear, well-written articles and assignment briefs for freelancers. Tightly manage content creation so it is on time and on budget.
Edit and proof articles for editorial excellence as well as SEO and CRO best practices. Each piece must be optimized, targeted to meet our marketing goals and delivered on time.
Load and publish articles in our content management system with a strong eye for CRO to maximize on-page conversions.
Demonstrate a meticulous approach to your work, with a highly organized process and unfailing eye for detail.
Track, measure and report on production status via a weekly forecast. Work with our content and SEO teams to use these and other performance metrics (traffic, conversions, revenue, etc.) to inform our content strategy moving forward.
Obsess over what type of content wins in search engines – read, learn, and follow search engine best practices; be a subject matter expert on what type of content wins; bring that point of view to our meetings.
Help build the culture of a thriving and fun growth-stage company.
What We're Looking For
Strong communication skills: You are a strong verbal and written communicator with the ability to build and influence relationships and compose effective communications.
Strong analytical skills: You are able to quickly understand data and use it to influence decision making.
Ownership mentality: You treat each content piece like it is your own and stand behind every word. You are comfortable putting your head down and producing excellent work without constant supervision.
Problem solving and agility: You thrive in an environment where there is no playbook for success. You can adapt to different tasks and shift priorities as needed. You have an entrepreneurial spirit and are energized by doing work that hasn’t been done before.
Exceptional attention to detail and organizational skills: You maintain a methodical process and high standard of excellence in your work, while balancing multiple projects and meeting tight deadlines.
An inherent drive to be excellent: You are not satisfied with average. You are enthusiastic and committed to doing whatever it takes to get the job done at a world-class level and don’t check out because it’s 5pm or a weekend.
Culture buy-in: At Three Ships, we Act with Focus, Get After It, Build the Team, and Grow Without Limits; these are our values, and we expect you to live them every day.
What your resume shows
Bachelor’s degree in Journalism, Communications, Marketing, English or related field preferred.
At least three years of digital editing or content production experience (experience in SEO-focused content preferred but not required).
Why you should join us
Results: At Three Ships we have 11 consecutive years of profitability and a track record of successful growth in the digital marketing space.
Stability: We are privately owned, have a holding period of “forever,” have no debt, have significant cash to invest – we’re “rock solid” financially.
Exposure: You will have a front-row seat in growing a business. Your teammates have built and sold companies, managed 100s of employees, and run campaigns with Fortune 500 brands.
Market Landscape: The mattress and sleep industries are highly relatable industries that are transforming at a rapid pace. There’s no better time than now to be building a business in this industry.
Career Growth: There is no cap on growth, promotions or the opportunity to own and put your stamp on important projects. Prove your value and you will be rewarded accordingly.
Learning: We are a small and mighty team but also have the advantage of tapping into the Three Ships ecosystem and working with subject matter experts in creative, branding, content strategy, SEO, paid media and more. The opportunity to grow new skills and learn from smart people is endless.
Fun: The team has a high bar for excellence, but also a real interest in each other and making work fun.
