The Daily Gazette Co., publisher of three daily newspapers in the Capital Region of New York state, is seeking a full-time paginator/designer/copy editor to work on the production of our publications.

The best candidate will be equally adept at closely editing local copy, designing pages and paginating. We ask our designers/paginators to ensure that our papers' layouts highlight our local journalism with an appealing visual style. Proficiency with Adobe InDesign is required, as is familiarity with AP Style. Prior newspaper design experience is preferred.

The position's responsibilities will include designing section fronts and inside news pages, writing headlines, editing locally produced copy and aiding in the fact-checking process. This person will be involved in the layout of multiple newspapers serving different communities, and will work closely with both news and production staff – so the candidate must have organizational skills and flexibility, and the ability to work on tight deadlines.

This position requires at least occasional work on all areas of the papers including news, features, opinion and sports.

Although the position will be primarily responsible for our print publications, experience with website work is a plus. Night and weekend work will be required.

To apply, candidates should send a resume, brief cover letter and work samples to Daily Gazette Editor Miles Reed at
