Ideate me now on the cross verticals, tentpoles and pitches

I'm grateful to a correspondent at the leading edge of digital for this job ad, which needs no explanation. Ideate is apparently back in use, having first emerged in the 17th Century.

BuzzFeed is seeking a managing editor to join the Creative team based in New York. BuzzFeed Creative specializes in native advertising and continuously innovates how brands tell their story in the social space. We have also recently launched a suite of longform products, including original reporting. 

We’re looking for a seasoned editor with cross-vertical experience to pitch ideas, manage a freelance network, and do original reporting in addition to fact-checking and editing. This position will focus largely on ideating article pitches for RFPs with a wide range of editorial focus. He or she will also be tasked with proactive pitching based on holidays and tentpoles with a strong awareness of what is trending in multiple editorial verticals such as tech, science, DIY, and culture (food, music, entertainment). 

As we are constantly innovating and building upon our offerings, the managing editor will be accountable for consistently growing and developing compelling content while maintaining our high journalistic standards. The ideal candidate is passionate about journalism, loves to experiment with article formats, and pushes the envelope with fresh ideas. He or she should be very comfortable with collaboration and experienced in giving editorial feedback and guidance. A love for reading, writing, and storytelling is a must!
