Lessiter Media, a prominent name in the niche publishing industry, is on the lookout for a dynamic Content Editor to join its award-winning team. This role is pivotal in shaping the editorial content for the company’s business-to-business titles that serve farm equipment dealers and manufacturers. With a strong emphasis on both print and digital media, the position offers a unique opportunity to delve into the agricultural sector’s latest news, trends, and best practices, thereby helping subscribers advance their agri-businesses.

The Content Editor will collaborate closely with managing editors to produce a variety of content, including feature articles, podcasts, and video segments. The role also involves on-camera reporting for the acclaimed On The Record broadcast, a staple in Lessiter Media’s content portfolio.

The role demands a curious and inquisitive mindset, with the ability to transform industry trends and data into actionable content tailored for a niche audience. Flexibility, adaptability, and a growth-oriented attitude are essential, as is the ability to work under pressure and meet tight deadlines.
