Red Alert Politics is looking for a detail-oriented managing editor to join its news team. The managing editor will be in charge of the day-to-day operations of the publication, including, but not limited to, story selection and direction, copy editing, reporting and intern mentorship. The position requires some travel and night/weekend work, in addition to possible media appearances. The managing editor must have a ‘buck stops here’ mentality and be comfortable making the tough calls on a daily basis. This individual will answer directly to the editor-in-chief.
The ideal candidate will have two years of professional journalism experience, preferably in an online, 24-hour news cycle format covering national news and politics. He or she must demonstrate a comprehensive knowledge of AP Style, social media management and SEO. Lack of copy editing experience is a deal breaker.
Please send three reporting clips, three references, a resume and any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Managing Editor.”
