The visual tone of each story is a crucial element to our editorial process, and establishing the right tone is one of the photo editors’ primary responsibilities.

The editor will work closely with Granite’s editor in chief and site editors to develop a visual style for each of our stories. While the editor must work well independently, they should also be eager to participate as part of a collaborative team via Slack, email, and on conference calls.

This is a permanent full-time staff position, including benefits. This is a remote job with occasional trips to SF. Must be U.S. based.

  • Meet deadlines, be organized and detailed, communicate clearly and consistently, and take pride in their work.

  • Exhibit comfort with editing photos and visual graphics, as well as building GIFs.

  • Enjoy making photo selections within AP Images and Getty Images with a creative eye (avoiding often-cheesy stock photos)

  • Have good attention to detail and strong project management, file-organization and archiving skills.

  • Perhaps most importantly, get stuff done.
