JOB DESCRIPTION

 

Narcity.com is currently looking for a motivated and experienced Associate Editor to join our rapidly expanding editorial team. The editor will play a major role in our daily operations and focus on our growth in Texas, specifically in Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio.

We are seeking a storyteller who loves Texas and wants to express it through the creation of engaging and relatable content. We cover everything from politics to real estate to sports to restaurants — whatever is trending in the Lone Star State.

The Associate Editor should have a strong network of sources and have a knack for finding unique angles. This person should have a record of breaking exclusive stories and be passionate about working with young and enthusiastic writers.

Narcity editors are as excited about discovering unicorn-themed coffee shops as reporting on the chaos of this morning’s commute. Our journalists are ambitious and independent thinkers who know what millennials care about.

We want Narcity to be the best source of information for our communities, whether that means breaking down new legislation, spotlighting extraordinary local characters, or spreading the word about urgent public health issues that everyone should know about.

Before applying, please visit our site to get a feel for what we’re looking for. Here are some examples of our favorite articles:

 

POSITION TYPE

This is a remote, contract position based in Austin, but the editor must be able to work closely with writers across the country. Compensation will be commensurate with experience.
