Music magazine seeks experienced editor
Job Status:  Full-time
Ad Expires: 
October 18, 2013
Job ID: 1528515


Are you a seasoned, professional journalist?

Established major music magazine seeks experienced editor.

Candidates must have at least five years experience as a senior or top editor on a magazine, daily lifestyle desk or major news weekly with the ability to apply their journalistic skills to a consumer music magazine catering to guitarists.

Applicants should demonstrate well-developed editorial skills and an ability to work on print, digital and web-based platforms.

This is a challenging, but rewarding job that asks you to manage multiple projects, including print, web, and digital production and video shooting and editing.

With guidance from the Editorial Director, you will follow a blueprint that meets the needs, interests, and playing abilities of our readers. Working closely with the small staff and a large pool of expert freelance writers and editors, you will develop ideas for stories; assign and edit articles; write headlines and other display copy; build on our social-media strategy; and, in conjunction with the art department and other editors, shepherd your stories from concept through print and online publication.

SEO experts, marketers, or recent college grads need not apply--this is a position that requires a skilled, experienced, professional journalist who knows what it means to roll up their shirt sleeves and get the job done.

Send cover letter, resume and at least 3 writing samples.

This is a full-time, in-office position in the San Francisco Bay Area.
