About Us:

With 150 million monthly unique users and offices in New York, Hamburg, London, Sydney, Melbourne and Warsaw, BAUER XCEL MEDIA is one of the world's fastest-growing digital media companies. Our New York office houses the digital division of Bauer Media Group US and it's here that we publish LifeandStyleMag.com, InTouchWeekly.com, CloserWeekly.com, FHM.com, J-14.com, TwistMagazine.com, M-Magazine.com, WomansWorld.com, FirstforWomen.com, and SoapsinDepth.com.

Bauer Xcel Media is not your typical digital publisher. Despite our powerhouse brand portfolio, our teams are small but mighty. We move quickly. We are programmatic first. We create all of our own content, fully independent of our print magazine counterparts. Our editors own the complete lifecycle of our content from idea, to story, to social media posting, and beyond. You'll find us in a shared start-up space where we have lots of hard-to-beat perks like a roof deck, beer on tap, ping pong, and an all-around collaborative spirit that's energetic and downright contagious.

Our team is fast and efficient and we believe that our spirit is a result of a flexible work environment that encourages a healthy work-life balance. Happy employees matter to us.
