Entertainment Lead, Partnerships

IGN

IGN’s content team is looking for a senior editorial lead to help discover, vet, and bring in new content opportunities through partnerships with brands our audience loves across movies and TV. This role will assist in spearheading our biggest entertainment partnership efforts, including bringing in exclusives on both large and small scales, leading on junket and red carpet coverage strategy, and leading our editorial efforts around our other event beats like SDCC. 

IGN’s editorial team is made up of all kinds of people that share a common love of games, TV, movies, comics, tech, and all things geeky. We strongly encourage people of every race, gender, sexual orientation, and background to apply.

Responsibilities

  • Oversee partner strategy with studios, networks, personal publicists to leverage access to content opportunities that best suit our staff and audience interests.

  • Maintain and introduce new contacts for exclusives, partnerships, and other collaborative content opportunities while abiding by our editorial standards.

  • Work with content team leads in execution, encouraging collaboration with the executive editors and platform leads to put the right opportunities in the right format in the right place for the right audience 

  • Work with our editorial events manager and senior manager of partnerships to prioritize which conferences, conventions, and other events the IGN team’s coverage efforts will be best placed and how, and assist in bringing in new and exclusive content to fit within the scope of our planned coverage around those tentpoles.

  • Track and coordinate coverage opportunities against industry trends, identifying key franchises and topics through metrics analysis and community sentiment that you determine we should be focused on pursuing

Required Skills

  • You have notable experience in taking high-level conversations and turning them into big partnerships, exclusives, and event coverage opportunities. 

  • You’re embedded in the world of entertainment but can also understand IGN’s specific audience and their interests and vet the best content and content opportunities that speak to both.

  • You have strong and established contacts in the entertainment industry across movies and TV.

  • You have strong editorial opinions and journalistic standards.

  • You enjoy collaborating with a large team of talent and can balance your own project ownership with delegating and working cross-departmentally. 

It would be extra awesome if…

  • You enjoy working on charity efforts and connecting our audience to important cultural moments in various ways to help us ensure we’re using our platform for good.

  • You have good on-camera presence and can speak extemporaneously on entertainment-related topics.

  • You’re familiar with the gaming industry and enjoy participating in and contributing to gaming content, too.

  • You’re based in Los Angeles or San Francisco - or can get to our offices in those cities.

If you think this sounds like the job for you, please apply here and make sure to provide a resume, and cover letter. (If you’re having any issues uploading multiple documents, feel free to combine them into one.)
