Description:

The Casper Star-Tribune, Wyoming’s statewide newspaper and top media organization, is seeking a copy and social media editor with high standards and strong organization and communication skills to join our news team.

In the role, you’ll work on our copy desk and with a regional design center to ensure the daily newspaper is compelling, clean and produced on time. You’ll also assist in our array of special sections.

But this isn’t an old-fashioned copy editing job: You’ll be on the front lines of our digital efforts as well. On a typical day you will be responsible for optimizing stories for the web and keeping our social media channels humming. And the right candidate will be eager to play an active role in producing digital content, working independently or with a team of journalists.

A commitment to quality, including an eye for detail, is a must. You’ll need strong editing and time management skills as well as the demonstrated abilities to meet a variety of deadlines, work well under pressure and collaborate with others in the newsroom and in other departments. 

We’re looking for someone with critical thinking skills, good news judgment and a strong grasp of grammar and AP style. Hours include evening and weekend work.

You’ll join a vibrant newsroom that emphasizes enterprise stories and projects – we’re hardworking but know how to have fun. We take pride in being our state’s largest and most important media voice.

Outside the newsroom, Wyoming offers endless outdoor opportunities. We’re at the base of a beautiful mountain range where you can hike in the summer and ski in the winter. World-class camping and fishing spots are just a short drive out of town. Casper boasts a small-town feel with big city offerings of restaurants, shopping and the arts. And if you’re missing the big city, Denver is an easy drive.

The Casper Star-Tribune is a Lee Enterprises news organization with a daily circulation of about 17,000. We offer an excellent benefits package, including medical, dental, vision, paid holidays and vacation. We are an equal opportunity employer. You can see our website at www.trib.com and learn more about our company at www.lee.net.

If this sounds like the job for you, then upload a resume and a cover letter explaining why you’re the best candidate at www.trib.com/workhere. Please include work samples. If you have difficulty uploading your work, you can send it to Digital Editor Alan Rogers at alan.rogers@trib.com.
