As an Acquisitions Editor for Criminology & Criminal Justice, you are responsible for strategically filling the pipeline with new content as well as expertly managing your list of active titles. This role lays the foundation for what we build and then market and sell in US College. New approaches and paradigms, author talent recruitment, and consistent updating and revising of core content is the lifeblood of our products and technology platforms. You pull together your knowledge of course markets, the competitive landscape, curricula, instructional design, discipline trends, and the author’s scholarly and creative process to chart a vision and strategy for your discipline that colleagues across US College can understand, support, and champion. You provide leadership at the discipline level, bringing alignment and clarity to our highly collaborative, cross-functional work.
You constantly look to improve your prospecting and list management skills in order to drive better results and root out inefficiency. You back up strategic insights with data analysis and market evidence and then use that knowledge to research, pilot, and implement editorial and market development efforts that drive adoptions and usage.
You work closely with product management, content development editors, product and field marketers, marcomm, and sales to develop and launch our products. An attention to detail and eye for quality are critical to your success, along with an ability to home in on a product’s unique value proposition in a way that clearly articulates how we solve student and instructor problems. You embrace a digital mindset and look for ways to innovate at the nexus of content and technology.
