According to the job posting, the Vine editor's primary responsibilities will be to discover and profile Vine's best content creators and find new outlets to share the videos. The concept is somewhat reminiscent of Tumblr's Storyboard project, which featured original editorial profiles of influential Tumblr community members, but folded earlier this year.
Vine and some outsiders seem to be showing interest in cultivating the app's version of the YouTube celebrity. Internet marketing guru Gary Vaynerchuk recently announced he would be starting a talent agency just for budding Vine stars.
