Seeking Culture Editor: Salon

Culture Editor

Salon, the pioneering news website, is hiring a culture editor who thinks in big ideas, someone who can look beyond the latest hot TV show, film or publishing trend and identify the exciting ideas fueling them — before anyone else. You’ll work with some of the smartest critics and savvy young reporters anywhere and have the opportunity to shape and drive the national cultural conversation. The editor must be a polymath, comfortable with pop culture and the high arts, and have a strong grasp of the places where politics and culture intersect, and how each shapes the other. The successful candidate will know how to craft, assign and package stories for our sophisticated and highly engaged audience.
Strong candidates will live in New York City, and have:

• A minimum 4 years editing experience
• Experience assigning stories
• Experience managing others
• A strong familiarity with the Salon brand
• The ability to react fast, and creatively, to breaking news
• Strong connections in the freelance writer world
• The ability to work on longer, high-impact features
• Experience working in digital media and with social media
Resumes and a cover letter should be sent to jobs@salon.com
