ABOUT THE JOB

In These Times, a nonprofit, monthly print magazine and website that has covered politics, social movements and culture from the left since 1976, is looking for someone to join our management team as the Associate Publisher. This person will be a key part of helping grow the organization and navigating the changing world of media, in which our model of nonprofit, reader-supported journalism is becoming increasingly important. This is an ideal role for someone who is passionate about social change and progressive media, as well as the ins and outs of how nonprofit media functions, survives and thrives. 

We’re looking for someone with at least 3 years of experience as a business manager or project manager. Experience working with nonprofit media and/?or political or social justice organizations is a plus, but not required. 

This is a full-time position with great benefits, and a starting salary of $54,000. The job is based in Chicago, in our spacious office right off the Western Blue Line, though we are temporarily working remote due to Covid-19. The deadline to apply is Monday, April 19. 

ABOUT IN THESE TIMES

Inspired by the socialist newspaper Appeal to Reason (which at one point reached nearly a million readers), historian James Weinstein founded In These Times in 1976 as a vehicle to inform and orient movements for social justice, and to move the Democratic Party left. As an independent, nonprofit publication, In These Times has always relied on reader support to produce honest, hard-hitting investigative and political journalism. 

Based in Chicago, In These Times produces a national, monthly print magazine and website dedicated to supporting movements for economic, social, racial and environmental justice, with a special emphasis on workers’ rights and investigative reporting. 

We’re looking for someone eager to work with a passionate, smart and dedicated staff to help build the organization to the next level, while never losing sight of the magazine’s greater political mission.

SALARY AND BENEFITS

This is a full-time, 40-hour a week position with generous benefits, including 100% paid medical and dental insurance, employer matched SIMPLE IRA plan, three-months paid parental leave, 16 paid holidays and 4 weeks paid vacation. In These Times is a News Guild union workplace, and this is a management position. 

Annual salary is $54,000.

The job is based in Chicago, in our spacious office right off the Western Blue Line, though we are temporarily working remote due to Covid-19.
