TLDR: We’re seeking a Director of Content to take charge of our content production, develop a long-term strategy for growth, and lead our team in executing that strategy. You will touch every corner of the Forte Labs content universe and be responsible for leading our media brand across all channels. The role is highly flexible, fully remote, and asynchronous except for occasional trips within the U.S., with a salary in the $80,000–$100,000 range.
At Forte Labs, our mission is to help people capitalize on the value of their knowledge and expertise and use it to achieve their ambitions and lead more fulfilling lives in the 21st century. We produce written and audiovisual content on “the art and science of knowledge work.” From teaching people how to effectively use productivity software to helping them develop self-awareness around how their mind works, to creating a system of knowledge management to leverage what they know (which we call a “Second Brain”).
Over the last 7 years, a little blog started on Medium has grown into a full-fledged media company:

What is the Director of Content going to do?
We are looking for an experienced professional to accelerate Forte Labs into a truly global, transformational media platform for personal productivity and knowledge management for the 21st century.
Every day in this role will be different. For example, a typical week could look like this: On Monday, you'll be preparing a newsletter to go out to tens of thousands of people the next morning. On Tuesday, you'll be producing an interview series for the podcast. On Wednesday, you'll be helping me revise our course content to improve the student experience. On Thursday, you'll be conducting research for an in-depth blog post. On Friday, you'll be coordinating with a video editor on the next YouTube upload. You will touch every corner of the Forte Labs platform.
The ideal candidate
I’m looking for someone who wants to build a transformative media brand with the potential to shape how people work and learn all over the world. Who embraces growth and change and sees their work as a means of self-expression and service, not just a paycheck. Who believes in our mission of using technology as a force for good. And who understands the critical role of written and audio-visual content in realizing our vision.
