Startup Europe. Grown up reporting
As Sifted continues to expand its membership activities, we are looking for a community and subscription manager. This role will be crucial to the company’s growth in the years ahead as we seek to grow the Sifted member community of investors, corporate innovators and startups.
Sifted is a new media platform, backed by the Financial Times, reporting on the world of technology and startups in Europe. Two-and-a-half years after launching, our high-quality journalism is a must-read for many founders, investors and people working in startups across the continent.
Our team of reporters, based across Europe, aren’t chasing the latest funding announcements or product releases; plenty of other sites have got that covered. We are telling the stories that should be told — big startup trends, compelling company profiles and the everyday lessons that come from growing a business and messing up along the way.
We have grown from a standing start to over 600k monthly unique visitors, and 100k newsletter subscribers, and have a lively social media following, but there is much more to be done to both grow and consolidate our readership. Having recently launched membership, we want in particular to build stronger relationships with our most dedicated readers — while also attracting a broader audience to both our great journalism, our wide range of events and other commercial activities.

We’re looking for someone who has at least 2 years’ client facing experience in a comparable role and the ability to work with a wide range of products / services used by a mix of investors, startup founders, corporate innovators and service providers to the European early stage ecosystem.
Ideally, you will be comfortable getting involved in many different types of projects, and excited to work in an environment where things move fast and often change.
Core skills for the role include:
We have a small-company mindset, but big company goals, and can draw on many of the strengths and benefits of a world-respected brand, the Financial Times. We’re friendly, hard-working and passionate about what we do. We have a flat structure, collaborate across disciplines and everyone has impact across many areas of the business. We value feedback, honesty and clear communication.
Base salary of £25-35k

£1,000 annual learning budget to spend on your own development and learning

Monthly team lunches for our all-hands meeting and seemingly endless snacks
Regular team socials… (eg. pub quizzes, dinners, rounders games)
