Digital Editor - Express Desk

Job Description:

The Boston Globe is hiring a digital editor for its Express Desk. We’re looking for someone with a wealth of energy and ideas who wants to join the all-star team behind some of the most distinctive journalism we produce here at the Globe.

The editor will be responsible for managing the Globe’s publishing on digital platforms. This includes writing and editing breaking news stories, handling wire stories, determining placement for enterprise stories, helping launch and disseminate major projects, and otherwise being a linchpin for a wide array of digital publishing efforts.  

We prize versatility in our digital editors: We need someone who can write, edit, and bend even the most stubborn CMS to his or her will. 

In addition, the editor should be someone who:

  • Possesses expert news judgment and feels comfortable making major news decisions independently.
  • Has excellent hands-on technical skills with content management systems and other publishing tools.  
  • Writes phenomenal headlines and has a knack for distilling complicated concepts into a handful of clear, crisp words.
  • Has deep experience publishing to digital platforms, whether it’s your site’s homepage, social media accounts, newsletters, alerts, or another avenue through which readers travel.
  • Is fluent in audience analytics -- not only how to interpret them, but also how to use them as a tool to make decisions.
  • Thrives as part of group setting, juggling multiple tasks at once and collaborating with your colleagues in a fast-paced environment.
  • Shows creativity. You constantly think about unorthodox ways to tell stories and convey the news to people. You thrive being at the cutting edge of technology and journalism, and want to help push this industry into the future.

Requirements:

  • At least 2-4 years of experience as a journalist
  • Excellent headline writer
  • Strong editor, for both copy and clarity
  • Able to produce clean, informative copy quickly and on deadline
  • Experienced reporter familiar with sourcing and journalistic standards
  • Hands-on experience with content management systems and other publishing tools
  • Skilled at multitasking and juggling multiple, fast-moving storylines at once
  • Experienced with social media and other alternate platforms
  • A team player who thrives working in a group setting
