We’re looking for our managing editor’s right hand, charged with shaping high-level editorial strategy for the company, and bringing in new writers. A demanding job for highly-creative former disgruntled English majors looking to actually make an impact (you don’t really need an English degree (we genuinely don’t even care if you went to college)).
Work with the managing editor on editorial strategy, pipeline, and workflow
Source and work with new writers — the key piece here, as we’re looking for someone capable of really owning an entire major branch of our coverage
Develop story ideas for and with staff writers, contributors, managing editor, and EIC
Fact-check, proofread, edit, and occasionally perform surgery on content before publication
Write and program for our social media accounts
Pitch and write your own pieces
Be on-call during off-hours when there’s an opportunity to jump on a story
Always be surfacing the weird, fascinating, and exciting new trends in information (drama)
Apply with a few writing samples and story ideas — we might want you to write one as part of the vetting process.
