Description:

 

NowThis News, a fully funded news company that’s building the news channel for the mobile and social generation, is looking to fill a key senior editorial position to oversee our app, newsletters, content pages and more. The Multi-Platform Editor position is critical to our company’s development as we create new products and grow our audience. 

NowThis News launched on iOS in November of 2012. Since then we’ve built multiple versions of our iPad and iPhone app, reached millions of viewers through our desktop web experiences and continue to grow every day as we develop existing platforms and introduce new ones. We’re building an exciting team lead by former executives from CNN, ABC News, Vice Media, The Huffington Post, BedRocket Media, AllThingsD and more. 

What We're Looking For:

The Multiplatform Editor will be the head of our “news desk” and be in charge of overseeing app production, article pages, our Rebel Mouse web presence atnowthisnews.com, newsletters and additional front facing products. The perfect candidate can plan out how our Inauguration coverage will come together across our platforms, while making sure that we’re meeting daily traffic goals and developing new ideas to expand our audience. In other words, we’re looking for a self-starter who can grow with our quickly expanding company. She or he needs to wake up every morning with a passion for covering and producing the news in innovative ways that fulfill NowThis News’s mission as the network for the mobile and social generation.

Specific Requirements:

  • Flexibility. This is a startup. We work extra hard when there is breaking news or a major event to cover.
  • An unwavering commitment to the facts.  Perfect grammar and spelling is key for this job.
  • At least two years experience in an editorial management role at a news organization.
  • Experience working with content management systems for the desktop web and mobile products.
  • A passion for developing audiences across mobile and desktop websites, social accounts, through SEO and additional strategies.
  • A love for the news business and the startup world.

Compensation:

This is a full-time, salaried position based in our New York offices. We work at a demanding startup pace that requires all-hands on deck during occasional nights and weekends.
