Culture Trip is a global hyper-growth startup operating in travel, media and entertainment. We create stories that reveal what is unique and special about a place, its people and its culture. In-house creative teams work with a global network of more than 300 freelance creators to produce articles, videos, photography, illustration and animation.  

From just a dozen people in late 2016, the team has expanded to more than 250. This diverse group of software engineers, product designers, data scientists, editorial experts and content creators are spread across offices in London, New York City and Tel Aviv. Alumni of companies including Google, Facebook, Expedia, Lonely Planet, Spotify, Bloomberg, Viacom, TripAdvisor and the BBC have joined recently. A recent Series B funding injection from PPF Group of $80 million has further propelled rapid growth. Monthly unique visitors to the site have gone from 4 million to nearly 20 million, cross-platform social followers have increased from 1 million to 7 million, and app downloads have leapt from 50,000 to 2 million. Culture Trip videos have been viewed more than 2 billion times. Culture Trip, founded by Dr Kris Naudts, has been named by Forbes as one of the fastest-growing companies to watch.

Everyone working at Culture Trip is driven by a shared vision: to inspire people to go beyond their cultural boundaries and connect with the world around them. We want to bring the world to everyone and in doing so bring everyone closer together.

Culture Trip magazine is a quarterly publication distributed in London and around the UK. The magazine is a fundamental part of our brand, marketing and editorial strategy and gives the Culture Trip brand a tangible platform to share our beautifully curated written and visual content. First published in October 2018 and now coming up to the fifth issue, the magazine continues to grow in strength. 

We are seeking a highly proactive and experienced project director to manage the production, logistics and distribution of the magazine in the absence of our Publishing Director. The candidate that we are looking for will have high-level experience of managing large scale projects, ideally within a publishing environment and have some knowledge of print media, but above all will be highly organized, creative and used to working in a fast-paced environment. 

The successful person will be part of Culture Trip’s award-winning editorial team and report directly to the Vice President of Creative Production. They will work alongside cross-functional teams across written content, design, illustration and photography whilst liaising directly with external print and distribution suppliers to ensure that the project runs smoothly from start to finish of each new issue. The project manager will be the first point of contact for the magazine and must be abreast of all the happenings at all times
