Digital Privacy News (DigitalPrivacy.News - @digitalprivacy) launched in 2020 and has already established itself as a quality source of privacy news. Our mission is to deliver independent information and news coverage of “all things privacy.” We are seeking an Editor in Chief to take us to the next level.

The successful candidate must have excellent news judgement and be able to quickly identify and pursue a wide range of stories that will engage and enlighten our readership. The position also requires the candidate to possess strong headline writing and editing skills, a keen eye in choosing compelling images that help tell and support the story. A personal interest and passion for the topic of people's online privacy is a big plus.

Candidates should also be able to demonstrate a strong track record of news gathering, editing, breaking exclusive content, knowledge of modern news gathering tools and resources, and experience with talent scouting and management of freelance writers.

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

Applicants will need to provide a covering letter with your application detailing the reasons why you would make an excellent candidate for this role.

Important to our mission is that the portal is funded by the foundation. There is no advertising, sponsorship programs, or the like. You will not be managed by a dashboard of data on clicks and SEO stats. Your job is not to “create demand.” It’s not about being data-driven about our readers – the problem is that there is too much data already! Your job is to help build the best information and news site for all things Privacy. 

Hiring manager is founder and president Peter Magnusson, formerly head of Google Cloud, VP of App Development at Snap, and Senior VP of Oracle Public Cloud (LinkedIn:PeterSMagnusson).

The job is full-time, salaried position, with competitive benefits. Occasional night, weekend, or holiday work. Preferred location is in our midtown Reno, Nevada, office (we can cover relocation expenses), but we are open to remote team members. We are an equal opportunity employer.

Please fill in application form (forms.gle/1oL2iVofJXpCZSiQ9) and email your cover letter and resume to careers+86063 (at) magnusson (dot) institute
