About Rapid Media
We are an established paddlesports media company with four paddling magazines, a new annual paddling buyer’s guide, an even newer monthly digital paddling magazine, an international paddling film festival and a whole bunch of online media properties. Visit www.rapidmedia.com to get a better feel for our media properties.
We have partnerships with the American Canoe Association, Paddle Canada and Outdoor Retailer. We were the first paddling and fishing magazines, and first magazine in Canada, in Apple’s Apps Store.
Right now our main focus is connecting all the dots—building stronger editorial connections between readers and our magazines, online, apps, and social media channels. And to do so we need help.
You will be joining a tight-knit team, consisting of a publisher and:
- Four editors putting together Rapid, Adventure Kayak, Kayak Angler and Canoeroots magazines
- Reel Paddling Film Festival World Tour coordinator
- Director of sales
- Advertising and sponsorship coordinator
- Designer and production coordinator
- Digital project manager
- Circulation manager
- Account manager
We are based in the beautiful Ottawa Valley; Palmer Rapids to be specific. This is a full-time, in-house position. You must be willing to live here or travel here during the week, at least until we get to know each other and are comfortable with alternative arrangements.
Our office is on the bank of the Madawaska River, five minutes downstream from class II-III+ Palmer Rapids, less than an hour from the mighty Ottawa River, and right in the middle between Algonquin Park and Calabogie Peaks ski resort. We paddle regularly and go swimming from the dock at lunchtime.
