Join Our Team: RADII.co Executive Editor

Founded in 2017, RADII provides a unique and insightful look into today’s China, cutting through the noise to uncover dynamic stories that upend clichés and create a deeper understanding of China’s role in creativity and culture across the world.

To further our mission in bridging the gap between China and the rest of the world, we created RADII.co — a mobile-friendly experience that aims to change the way younger readers experience and learn about China. We believe that this new, open-minded generation of change-makers are the key to further greater understanding between cultures, and so we designed this platform with them in mind.

The Executive Editor for RADII.co will report to the CEO, and is expected to manage and curate the RADII.co platform daily with engaging, insightful content that captures a growing audience of young readers all over the world. He/She will also work closely with the Managing Editor in the coordination of content resources and the Product team to maintain and develop the RADII.co platform.

In this role, the candidate will set the long-term editorial strategy, will be responsible for commissioning, writing and editing, as well as working with data and Marketing teams to iterate on and implement editorial strategy based on data and internal feedback. The ideal candidate is a pro-active, strategic-thinking, and well-rounded project manager that is up to date on current user research and media trends, and can weigh in on all aspects of a developing platform.

This candidate should passionately devour news related to and outside of China, and have their finger on the pulse of trends and stories that resonate with young readers. He/She should also have a knack for commercialized and sponsored content, and be willing to work with Marketing and Business Development to generate marketing campaigns and sponsorship opportunities that are in line with RADII’s mission and target audience.

Most importantly, the candidate should have a strong desire to carry out RADII’s mission of creating new bridges of cultural understanding via original, incisive, and youthful reporting on today’s China.
