About National Journal

Celebrating a brand that spans weekly and daily print magazines, over 60 events a year, and one of the most dynamic and expanding digital properties in the Washington, DC market, National Journal’s mission is to provide original insight, fresh perspective, and breaking news at the intersection of politics and policy. Engaging this serious editorial tradition in the context of a rapidly transforming media enterprise, National Journal provides the most influential leaders in government – on Capitol Hill, in the Executive Branch, and The White House – and the industries that surround them, with trusted perspectives on the issues that they “need to know”.  

Job Description

Atlantic Media seeks a production editor for National Journal Daily—National Journal Group’s daily publication for Capitol Hill insiders. The position involves design and layout of the print edition—published while Congress is in session—as well as updating the publication’s website and digital edition. Familiarity with photo and graphic layout is a must, as are solid writing and editing skills and a keen eye for detail. Evening work hours are required.

Responsibilities Include:

·         Create attractive designs for daily publication.

·         Update website and send email alerts.

·         Edit daily event listings for space, content, and style.

·         Work closely with in-house editorial staff as well as an off-site press operation under tight deadlines.

Qualifications of the Ideal Candidate:

·         A bachelor’s degree in English, journalism or graphic design.

·         At least three years of experience in journalism and publication design.

·         Strong knowledge of Adobe CS5.5 and press operations.

·         Experience in K4 and Nstein content management systems and an interest in politics is highly desirable.

·         Ability to manage staff and multiple projects.

·         Grace under pressure and strong organizational skills.

Core Attributes:

·         Force of Ideas - At the center of Atlantic Media work are the ideas within our writing.  We believe that ideas – to the good and not – have consequence.  Our highest work is bringing rigor, insight, intellectual honesty, to that ultimate purpose of separating the bad from the good, giving voice, argument, and flight to the latter.

·         Spirit of Generosity- Atlantic Media seeks in its ranks a spirit of generosity – a natural disposition in each colleague toward service and selfless conduct.  Atlantic Media writing should be cut from the same cloth – critical on the merits but informed by charity and forbearance in measuring motive and personal character.
