Description:

The Bangor Daily News is seeking a smart, creative, digital news editor.

 

This key role is part of our digital hub at the heart of the newsroom, which is responsible for packaging, publishing and promoting all our content. 

 

Digital editors curate the bangordailynews.com homepage and social accounts for maximum audience and news value; write and edit headlines; execute quality control on all site content and ensure our site is fresh, compelling and aimed at meeting the needs of our statewide audience. 

 

If you’re the right person for this challenge, this is how we would describe you: You are an aggressive self-starter who loves the pace of digital news. You understand SEO, and how to present content on different social media networks. You get how people actually read the news, and are obsessed with meeting, and exceeding, their expectations. Chances are you have unusually strong opinions about grammar that almost no one else cares about. (Don’t worry. We care.)

 

You’d be joining a digitally focused statewide news organization in its fourth generation of local ownership. We believe that there’s a bright future for local newsrooms that invest in good journalism and put their audiences first. This role is a key part of that vision. 

 

If you think you might be our next great hire, please submit your resume and cover letter to jdyer@bangordailynews.com.
