Hiring: Features Editor

TPM is hiring a Features Editor who will work out of our New York City office. This is not just a new opening. It's an entirely new position, one of we've never had before. So we're very excited about the hire and very focused on finding just the right person.

Almost all of our news staff - editors and reporters - is focused on the kind of rapid-fire, iterative coverage of politics and news you know us for. We've created this new position to focus entirely on new areas we're expanding into - opinion, features, longform articles, most of which of which will come from outside contributors. That means the time pace and the range of topics the Features Editor will work on will be significantly different from the rest of our editorial staff. This is an exciting an opportunity to help us expand TPM in a challenging, fruitful new direction.

See our listing after the jump.
