The Bangor Daily News is seeking a smart, creative, digital news editor.
This key role is part of the News Desk, which is the digital hub at the heart of the newsroom responsible for packaging, publishing and promoting all our content and managing our immediate breaking news coverage.
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 how people consume news -- and why -- in 2021. You know how to curate and edit captivating videos. You write quick, compelling stories and headlines that get to the point. You can aggregate content around breaking news and topics that matter to Maine. 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 large, and growing, 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 plan.
If you think you might be our next great hire, please submit your resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
