Editor – Top Crop Manager

At Annex, we believe that good things happen when like-minded people come together to create and connect. This belief is at the heart of the work we do. That means finding people who like to work hard and have fun doing it—the kind of people who get excited by a new challenge, but who always find time for a good laugh.

Annex is a 100% Employee-Management Partnership and our employees share in the ownership and success of the company. We prioritize the well-being of our employees. Everyone enjoys flexible working hours, a comprehensive benefits package, progressive vacation entitlement, additional paid days off throughout the year, opportunities for continuing education, profit sharing, and all the necessary tools to excel in your role. Our modern offices offer a hybrid schedule of two common days in-office (Tuesdays & Wednesdays) and three days remote, or wherever in the industry you happen to be that day. Plus, you’ll love our 35-hour workweek, which ends at 1:30 pm on Fridays.

If this sounds like an environment you would thrive in, Top Crop Manager is looking for an experienced editor to drive the technical content for this premier agriculture brand that our audience has come to expect from us. We cover topics such as crop production, plant breeding, fertility and nutrients, R&D to technology, market trends and business management and of course, all things in between. We reach our audience through print, websites, enewsletters, podcasts, social media, video, and our own series of live and virtual events. You will also get to be part of a larger agriculture team that collaborates on innovative projects and supports each other as needed.

What you will do:

  • Embed yourself in the industry to ensure our readers are in the know when it comes to industry news, business and trends, forward thinking brands and sector experts, products/technology and industry happenings.
  • Develop products around industry-leading content, choosing the best platform to make these “must-read” brands.
  • Partner with freelance writers and industry contributors, edit copy from industry experts, and ensure the quality and timeliness of print and digital content.
  • Drive our digital products, including websites, e-news, social media, video, webinars, podcasts and more in our quest to reach our audience wherever they are.
  • Host and attend industry events (live and virtual) to better connect with your audience.
  • Help create content and marketing around existing and new conferences.
  • Build and foster relationships with industry associations and partners.
  • Innovate and act on emerging trends and needs within the media world and new technologies in agriculture.

What the ideal Annex candidate looks like:

  • In addition to a degree/diploma in journalism or related field, you have five or more years’ experience in editing, writing or journalism.
  • Experience covering technical research or business sectors is an asset.
  • Proven comfort with all forms of media communication, including print, websites, video, podcasts and social media.
  • A valid driver’s license and enthusiasm for limited travel within and outside of Canada.
  • Ability to work together to achieve the best results and proven can do/will do attitude. You take ownership over all you do.
  • Great organizational abilities, as well as strong computer skills.
  • Track record of going above and beyond to deliver the unexpected.
  • Ability to adapt in a constantly evolving media business, with a shining work ethic.
  • Capable of working remotely from a home office as well as in one of our office locations as required.
  • You have an interest in farming (ag background is an asset, but not required).

What we offer:

Besides what we’ve already mentioned above, you will be joining Canada’s leading B2B media company, where our values and unique culture help us consistently outperform the industry. You’ll also get the chance to work with a media group that knows the business inside and out. You will appreciate the autonomy to get the job done, as well as the support and encouragement to launch your best ideas.

If all of this sounds like the perfect next step in your career, please send a cover letter, resumé, and links to writing samples to, talent@annexbusinessmedia.com.
