A bit about the team
You’ll be part of our Organic Content team, which means you’ll work with people who care a LOT about publishing great work. We’re on a mission to dramatically improve the quality of our blog content. With the goal of making the Semrush blog the best place in the world to learn SEO.
That makes this an opportunity to sharpen your skills. You’ll get plenty of feedback, and you’ll participate in group workshopping sessions (they’re fun, we promise). But if you aren’t interested in growing as an editor, this role probably won’t be a good fit for you. It also won’t be a good fit if you don’t already have excellent editing skills. At Semrush, you’ll be encouraged to slow down and focus on quality. But we are a business with goals to meet. Finding a balance between these two forces will be a key to success in this role.
