Company: The Recorder
Associate Editor
Job Status:  Full-time
Ad Expires: 
April 4, 2013
Job ID: 1472970


The Recorder, which covers the business of law and legal affairs online and in print, is looking for an associate editor. This is an environment where being first is good, but being smart with credible analysis and sharp observations is essential.

Editors work collaboratively with a half-dozen reporters to break news, develop enterprise stories and execute investigative pieces that often drive what the financial wires and mainstream press chase later. As part of ALM, the parent of The American Lawyer magazine, The Recorder also is a leader in giving our audience of lawyers and judges high-value data-driven reports. 

The associate editor supervises reporters and manages some standing features and special reports. We’re looking for someone who can help reporters do great work, isn't afraid of social media and reader engagement, has ideas on how to improve story presentation online and in print and can geek out with some spreadsheets. 

An interest in the law and legal profession is a must, but a legal background is not required. We are looking for candidates with two years of editing experience, preferably in a digital first environment, but will consider reporters who want to break into editing.

ALM places a high value on employees and strives to be an employer of choice. To that end we offer competitive salaries, professional growth opportunities, and a comprehensive selection of benefits that include: medical, dental, vision, 401(K) and life insurance options.  

Qualified candidates should submit resume, cover letter, salary requirements and representative editing clips to for immediate consideration.  Only candidates selected for interviews will be contacted.  No phone calls or agencies please.  ALM is an equal opportunity employer that encourages and values diversity.  M/F/D/V
