Content Acquisition Lead
NewselaMarketingFull TimeRemoteRemote

The Role

The Content Acquisition Lead will own the prospecting, outreach, negotiation, and signing of new content partnerships (e.g. Bloomberg, The Guardian, etc.). You will also have a direct hand in shaping the future roadmap of Newsela’s content. As our business and market needs grow, you will be responsible for making available the content that students ultimately see. Reporting to the Director of Content Business Strategy, you will work closely with our Content Editorial, Product, Data, and Marketing teams to ensure that Newsela is building relationships with the best content partners in the industry.

Why You’ll Love This Role

From determining the future of what students read, to negotiating with big name organizations, to securing new partnership deals, you will own an enormous piece of the end user’s experience. The deal you close one week may directly result in thousands of students reading an article from that partner the following week. Your work will directly affect how teachers and students interact with Newsela, and in turn help deepen the impact of our mission to make reading accessible and engaging for all learners.

Why We’ll Love You

You have 3+ years of experience building out a robust, well-documented pipeline of prospective partners. Navigating networks to reach (and elicit a positive response from) a cold contact is a challenge you eagerly accept. You have honed your written and verbal communication skills. Further, you excel in a style of negotiating that forms a foundation for long-term partnership, whether it be via an email with a nonprofit education coordinator or via an in person meeting with the CEO of National Geographic. You’re seasoned in gaining cross functional buy-in for your strategy from the data team to the editorial team. Experience in education, content licensing, or media is a plus!
