Description:

Do you love to discuss the nuances of authentic representation in pop culture? Do your friends call you “very online”?

Familiarity with Jewish culture and traditions is helpful. This is a full-time, remote position with full-time benefits. The salary is $60,000-$65,000 and working hours will be roughly Monday to Friday, 9-5 EST.

Hey Alma is a feminist Jewish culture publication and online community bringing you a diversity of voices. We publish daily articles about pop culture, politics, news, identity, holidays and more, all through a Jewish lens. We believe in using our platform to raise the voices of all Jews, but especially those who often don’t get heard enough in the organized Jewish world, including Jews of Color, queer Jews, Jews by choice, and Mizrahi and Sephardic Jews. Hey Alma is a publication of 70 Faces Media, which also publishes Kveller, The Nosher, JTA, New York Jewish Week, and My Jewish Learning.


What you’ll do:

  • Manage Hey Alma’s submissions inbox and make editorial decisions

  • Play a key role in envisioning and executing special projects, series, etc.

  • Contribute to all aspects of daily production, including writing headlines, providing feedback on social content and images and helping to maintain editorial calendar

The ideal candidate will:

  • be an experienced editor with a thoughtful approach to the big picture and an eagle eye for grammar and style 

  • be able to package stories from visuals to headline

  • have significant experience writing, assigning and editing

  • be someone who follows along with the discussions taking over social media and is excited to bring fresh perspectives to the forefront
