The Stranger, Seattle’s only newspaper™, is looking for an experienced and energetic editor to lead its news department. Managing a team of three reporters, the news editor will be responsible for creating smart, engaging stories, setting the tone for news and political coverage in the fastest-growing large city in America™. The news editor should know how to connect with audiences in an online, fast-paced environment and have an already-established presence on social media.
The ideal candidate should also have a firm understanding of how city government works, know their way around public records requests, and be unafraid of taking stances. Familiarity with Seattle city politics is a plus, as is prior reporting experience. Send a cover letter, your résumé, and a few writing samples to firstname.lastname@example.org. Women, people of color, LGBTQI, and other underrepresented people in media are encouraged to apply. No phone calls, please!
