Description:

Bring your print and digital media experience to this opportunity where you’ll build your resume with exposure to a truly digital-first operation in a group that is leading the way in determining how the new media landscape is evolving. As the Deputy Features Editor -- what would have been considered the other “half” of a features department editing team in a previous world -- you’ll be leading a team of veteran reporters who cover high-interest areas such as home and gardening, food and drink, pop culture, etc. You’ll help to create stories that will draw high readership online, coach the team in engaging the audience through social media, and finding the news in these subjects while mixing in a healthy dose of useful information and fun.

We want stories that can’t be found anywhere else and that our readers will care about and engage in. If you’re a journalist with a diverse array of interests and insatiable curiosity who has a keen sense for the news of the moment, an instinct for stories that will get people talking, and a desire to give people information that will help them indulge in their passions, hobbies, and interests, then this could be the right role for you!

The Plain Dealer Publishing Co. has transformed itself into a digitally focused newsroom where stories, photos and other materials are produced that drive cleveland.com, and our print editions in the daily Plain Dealer newspaper, as well as the weekly Sun News editions, which target specific geographic areas.

To be a good fit for this opportunity you will have:
  • A bachelor’s degree in journalism, communications or a related field, or the equivalent experience
  • Multiple years of professional experience in print and digital media, including a proven ability to identify and oversee the reporting and writing of stories and online packages; reporting experience would be a strong plus
  • Successful management and/or team leadership experience with multi-disciplinary teams
  • Mastery of social media and digital interaction; experience working with video and social networking/functionality is highly desirable
  • A sense of urgency to get the story now, balanced with the experience and discipline to know when a story is ready for readers
  • A demonstrated ability to conceive story ideas and build a culture of ideas on a reporting team
  • A solid track record of developing projects and managing them from inception to launch
  • Experience with online metrics reports and analyzing their implications
