About SevenFifty Daily

SevenFifty Daily is an award-winning online magazine focused on the business and culture of the drinks industry. We analyze the issues professionals are talking about, explore new insights and innovations, and promote work-life balance, enabling our readers to optimize their job performance and career potential. Covering the three trade tiers, we connect a global community of drinks professionals, creating a space for conversations and a platform for showcasing the people and ideas moving the industry forward.

 About the Role

We're looking for a self-directed Senior Editor for SevenFifty Daily (sevenfiftydaily.com). The ideal candidate will be an accomplished editor with a wide network of industry contacts and experience assigning articles about wine, spirits, and beer, and the greater drinks industry—from the brands and individuals making the products to the people selling them (sommeliers, cicerones, bartenders, retail staff). The Senior Editor will be an integral part of our editorial team. You’ll help us shape stories, as well as assign them to a diverse pool of writers. You’ll join us in our quest to achieve the highest quality possible for every piece of content we publish—yes, your editing muscles are going to get a workout. You’ll help us generate multimedia ideas (podcasts, videos, etc). And you’ll help us keep SevenFifty Daily running like a well-oiled machine. And don’t be surprised if we express our gratitude for your great work by toasting with a glass of something tasty on occasion. This role will report directly to, and work very closely with, the Executive Editor. This is a full-time position based in Manhattan and comes with competitive salary, stock options, and benefits.

What you’ll do: 

  • Propose article and editorial package concepts focused on ideas and innovations in the drinks business.
  • Manage weekly lineup for site content and longer-term editorial calendar.
  • Assign and edit stories for daily publication, working closely with art director, copyeditor, and producer.
  • Take the lead on developmental editing and line editing all content—across editorial and sponsored channels.
  • Oversee photo production for stories, working closely with the producer and art director.
  • Field public relations requests, general inquiries, and pitch submissions.
  • Monitor industry news and regularly pitch trending and breaking news story ideas.
  • Hire and manage freelance writers, seeking out a diverse lineup of expert voices.
  • Attend regular industry events on behalf of SevenFifty Daily, posting to social channels as needed.
  • Stay on top of competitive content and share relevant analysis and recommendations with the team.
  • Pinch-hit on new projects as necessary. 

Who you are:

  • Passionate about the drinks business.
  • Excited to tell us about your favorite wine, beer, spirit, or cocktail.
  • Eager to learn, even if you already know a lot about this stuff.
  • Curious and always looking for story leads and new voices from our industry to showcase.
  • An exceptional editor and writer with solid grammar skills—an affinity for clean copy, em dashes, and serial commas is a plus!
  • Dedicated to high-quality reporting and top-notch editorial, overseeing the publication of 3 to 5 longer-form articles per week, ranging from 500–2,500 words.
  • Extremely organized and able to meet multiple daily deadlines while thinking ahead.
  • An excellent communicator with the ability to interact positively with writers, social followers, readers, and internal teams.
  • Tech savvy with experience working in a CMS, doing photo research, optimizing content for SEO, and using project management tools (Slack, Asana, G-Suite).
  • Excited about a startup environment—as part of a small team, this role will be involved in all parts of running the publication.
  • Detail oriented, with an aptitude for on-the-fly copyediting and fact-checking.

What you have:

  • At least 5 years of experience working as an editor at a newspaper, trade journal, or consumer publication; journalism degree preferred.
  • Experience working in some part of the beverage alcohol industry.
  • Certifications from WSET, Court of Master Sommeliers, Cicerone program, or other drinks educational bodies (preferred).
  • A can-do attitude. 

What it’s like to work here:

  • This is an onsite job in NYC (no remote applicants, please).
  • We’re 50-ish people and growing, based in the Flatiron with a few remote colleagues.
  • We are former hospitality professionals excited about shaping the future of the drinks industry.
  • We like to take Pilates or spin, grab drinks, and eat good food together.
  • We also enjoy happy hours, bake-offs, book clubs, game nights, and fun group activities.

Perks & benefits:

  • Salary range between $75-90K annually
  • Company sponsored medical, dental, and vision
  • Meaningful equity
  • Unlimited vacation to rest and recoup
  • Learning opportunities (like wine master classes!)

 More About Us

For distributors and suppliers, SevenFifty provides robust educational and CRM tools and the means to share complete portfolios with current and prospective buyers.

An Insider's view of SevenFifty

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Anyone who has worked in restaurants knows that there's a specific kind of comradery, not to mention a sense of humor, that comes out of that environment. What I like about SevenFifty is that we share some of that sensibility. We work hard, we support each other, we like to have fun, and we have an appreciation for the industry we serve!

Jacob

Engineer

What projects are you most excited about?

I enjoy the consistency in my colleagues and what they teach me on a daily basis. There are always unforeseen challenges on the support side, but when you have a great team to help you, those challenges turn into things you look forward to solving. There’s always something to new to learn — that’s one of the reasons I enjoy working at SevenFifty.

Marcus

Customer Support Specialist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

We are modernizing an antiquated industry with technology by providing efficiencies that free-up the supply chain and enhance human relationships in a $50 billion space. I am fortunate to work with people that are at the top of their respective skillset (marketing, data analysis, engineering, journalism) and have a damn good time doing it.

Melissa

Senior Director, Distributor Platform

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Accessibility is not just availability. Early in one's career, managers and execs can seem distant and unapproachable. It's important to proactively create relationships with team members by being vulnerable and emotionally open. It's presence (no screens) during 1:1s. It's encouraging disagreement and adjusting my communication style as needed.

Noemi

VP, Engineering

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I'm one of a handful of remote workers on a team that works mostly at our headquarters, but I'm more connected to my teammates at SevenFifty than I've been to former coworkers with whom I've shared an office. I'm accessible throughout the day on slack and Zoom, and we meet monthly during all-hands + quarterly in-person at team week.
