This highly influential and much-read journal is looking for a smart, talented web editor to further dial up the digital end of things. It’s a great place to work, full of super-high-caliber people, and the content is always fascinating. This is your chance to wield real editorial influence on a magazine read by movers and shakers the world over.
Reporting to the company’s executive editor, you’ll contribute to the overall editorial strategy and coverage choices, as well as being the principal strategic architect of all things web. On a day-to-day basis, you’ll manage all of the website’s editorial activities, devise its content, set its priorities and supervise its execution by junior editors.
Of course you’ll always be conceptualizing features and other products for the site; much of this will be driven by what your close monitoring of the analytics is telling you. You’ll always be thinking about how the print publication, the website and social all fit together and function in step to increase the audience and thus revenue. Your overall goal will be to detect the conversations of greatest moment out in the world and convince the public that your site is the place to go for extremely well-informed details about what’s happening.
As a manager, you’ll hire, retain and mentor a talented team of editors, keeping their work on time and budget, and seeing to their satisfaction and professional development.
Hired Gun Proﬁle
You’re an insightful and creative editor, the kind of person who’s always able to find a fresh angle or a new way of presenting ideas. Your colleagues are always impressed by your seemingly instinctual knowledge of your audience (and although some of that indeed comes from your gut, it’s largely due to your careful study of the analytics). Your experience covers digital publishing, social media and multimedia editing, and ideally contains some writing or editing of national and/or foreign affairs.
Unlike some editors, who best thrive behind a closed office door, you’re outgoing and collaborative as well as a strong and concerned leader. You’ve spent a few years honing your management skills and enjoy the role of supervisor and mentor almost as much as the editorial work itself.
This employer prefers intellectual firepower, so don’t be shy about putting forward anything that speaks to your fancy brains.
This is a wonderful opportunity, with a great employer, to shape global discussions, shed light on pressing matters, and enhance an already legendary franchise.
