Description:

In this position you will have the opportunity to showcase your creativity and great ideas as a key part of a new initiative on the cutting edge of digital journalism -- we are looking for professionals who can bring a fresh approach. You will lead a team of Curators pulling content from digital platforms and other sources, and transforming it into top-quality print stories and packages for both newspaper and magazine publication (you'll also make hands-on contributions yourself). Pivotal to your success will be your ability to collaborate effectively with stakeholders from several other areas of the organization. Our preference is that you already have supervisory experience, but this could be your chance to step up.

We are building a team of top talent in a truly collaborative environment in which you'll share ideas and explore the latest trends. Our new company is nimble and innovative, with an energetic culture and state-of-the-art facilities and tools. You'll help pave the way and your talents, determination, and drive will be key to your success.

To be a good fit for this opportunity you will have:
  • A bachelor's degree in Journalism, Graphic Design, Graphic Communications, Art or a related field, OR an equivalent combination of education and experience.
  • Solid newsroom experience as a Curator, Content Editor, Source Editor, or similar role.
  • A demonstrated ability to package news.
  • The ability to lead and supervise staff; supervisory and / or team leadership experience is strongly preferred.
  • Demonstrated news judgment that aligns with direction set by senior management.
  • Strong editing and proofing skills.
  • Working knowledge of online social networks (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter), blogs, wikis, and emerging communications technologies.
  • Knowledge of newspapers and other forms of print media.
  • Ability to relocate to Harrisburg, PA.
