We’re Hiring: Senior Editor

TPM is currently hiring for four editorial positions, one existing position and three new positions: Senior Editor, Prime Editor, Assistant Editor and a third reporter to join our Investigations Desk team. I’ll be posting job listings for all of these positions shortly. But I wanted to start with the Senior Editor listing, an existing position based out of our New York office.

Listing after the jump.


TPM is seeking a senior editor to lead a team of reporters in deep, immersive, fast-paced coverage of US politics, policy, and related coverage areas. The position requires strong leadership and diplomacy skills, the ability to engage and inspire your team, and the desire to work in a highly collaborative setting on new and innovative ways to tell stories.

Outstanding news judgment, a strong grasp of US politics, the ability to juggle stories of multiple lengths and varying levels of complexity, and a sharp sense of humor are all required. The senior editor will have a significant role in helping to direct overall news coverage and manage the editorial team.

A minimum of seven years of professional editing and/or reporting experience is required.

The position is based in either NYC or DC. It offers health insurance coverage, 401(k), and three weeks paid vacation per year. To apply, send a resume and cover letter to jobs (at) talkingpointsmemo.com. Include the subject line: “Job App: Senior Editor”.

Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
