  • Surface compelling, untold stories and respond nimbly to cultural conversations with stories that will generate buzz

  • Seek, manage, and grow relationships with both established writers and up-and-coming voices

  • Brainstorm large-scale projects (site, social, and video-based) that reach new audiences, engage loyal ones, and make waves in the industry

  • Lead the staff in the absence of the editor in chief and/or executive editor

  • Work with data and analytics to help the executive editor determine site strategy

Who you are:


  • Minimum 5 years of experience editing or writing in journalism, publishing, creative services, and/or content creation
