Position: Co-Publisher & Digital Development Manager
Organization: EcoParent magazine
Location: anywhere in Canada

Founder Sam Stedman is ready to take a step back after a decade as the sole leadership at EcoParent. The organization needs fresh eyes and energy to drive another decade of growth. The role requires someone with strategic vision, diverse talents, an entrepreneurial spirit, and exceptional project management skills. Publishing experience may be an asset, but is far from required, as we're not a typical publisher.

The new business partner will step directly into Sam's (large) shoes. The role is that of business owner and publisher, with tasks ranging from sales to accounting, circulation management to HR, and lots and lots of project management. The transfer of duties will be gradual and metered, to ensure continuity, and to avoid unpleasant hiccups.

Sam will maintain some ongoing duties. In particular, he’s had exceptional success with grant writing, which is one of the more labour-intensive parts of the job…and one that he’d like to keep doing. The division of labour is negotiable, but the majority will fall to the new business partner.

The right person for this role must be prepared to have skin in the game. This is not just a job offer – it is the opportunity to acquire equity in an established business, and then take an active hand in growing that equity. The amount of equity – and the terms – are negotiable and flexible. The most important thing is finding the right person. Not only will this person have a wealth of skills, boundless energy, and a passion for digital projects, but they need to care about the mission, and the business, like an owner must.

At present, EcoParent is in the final stages of a monumental digital evolution, and we plan to launch a freemium mobile app in Q1 2023. This app will serve as the hub of a wealth of new multimedia content that we've already started to create (a podcast network, e-Learning courses, etc.). The right person for this role has to get giddily excited at the prospect of bringing an app into this world, and making it great!
