Hiring: Features Editor
TPM is hiring an Features Editor. This is a full-time position, based out of our New York City office, tasked with overseeing opinion, longform and freelance contributors. The position includes a mix of story-assignment and story-editing as well as working with the Managing Editor to manage the editorial calendar and story budget. Applicants must have a broad familiarity with a range of topics, including but not limited to politics and current affairs, and the ability to work with writers to create quality content which engages, challenges and delights readers.
This is a new position created to continue TPM's expansion into new areas and types of coverage outside our core focus on rapid-fire iterative coverage of politics and breaking news. As such the Features Editor will play a key role defining TPM’s voice and approach in these new areas.
Candidates must have at least five years of professional editing and/or reporting experience and must be ready to work in a highly collaborative environment and at the fast-paced metabolism of a digital news organization. Deep familiarity with the digital news space, along with a real familiarity with TPM and solid news judgment, are each a must.
