Description:

Webinar Producer/Online News Producer, edweek.org

Education Week is seeking a creative, versatile Web producer who can bring fresh ideas, an eye for detail, and great time-management skills to a talented news and information operation. Edweek.org, an award-winning digital news site, serves some 500,000 unique visitors a month and provides an array of first-rate content for education policymakers, frontline educators, and wider audiences.

Published by the independent, nonprofit Editorial Projects in Education, Education Week spans multiple platforms that also include a weekly print edition, a daily e-newsletter, specialized e-newsletters and special reports, video and multimedia, social media, virtual and live events, and nearly 50 staff- and guest-written blogs.

In this job, you will manage the production of Education Week's growing webinar series, in coordination with the director of programming for live and virtual event, other departments, staff moderators, and guest presenters. While technical training for webinar production will certainly be provided, it is important that you posses the essential technical and project management skills to lead this cross-departmental effort.

As part of the online news production team, you will also share in some daily production responsibilities for edweek.org.

Depending on your qualifications, you will also have opportunities to participate in or lead other projects, including those involving writing, video production, social media, and/or multimedia presentations.

You must be able to self-manage, multi-task, and meet daily deadlines while maintaining content quality, technical integrity, and journalistic standards. Online news presentation techniques and technology are constantly changing, and our producers are expected to bring new ideas, enthusiasm, grace under pressure, and an entrepreneurial spirit to the job. Excellent customer service skills are also required. You will have a voice in projects and opportunities for project ownership in a fun, collaborative team environment.

Qualifications: 

  • Experience with digital news production, content management systems, and blogging platforms
  • Strong communications and time-management skills
  • Experience in hosting, moderating, or producing online events strongly preferred
  • Ability to field client and audience questions with skill, patience, and tact
  • Writing and copyediting experience and knowledge of AP Style are a plus
  • Knowledge of or interest in education news and policy is a plus
  • Some experience with HTML, CSS, Photoshop, and Dreamweaver is a plus
  •  

    Salary is commensurate with experience and comes with good benefits. We offer a congenial workplace in Bethesda, Md., a vibrant suburb just outside Washington, D.C., within walking distance of the Metro subway system and the bike-friendly Capital Crescent Trail. The building includes a staff fitness room.

    To apply: Send cover letter, résumé, and samples of your work to websearch@epe.org. Editorial Projects in Education is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
