Job Description

The Texas Observer is looking for a digital publisher to oversee the growing online presence.

The Texas Observer is seeking a digital editor to oversee our growing online presence. We are a 68-year-old National Magazine Award-winning Texas institution that was doing longform before longform was cool. We are also increasingly a daily digital must-read covering Texas politics and culture with an emphasis on social justice, inequality, race, LGBTQ+ issues, and immigration.

As the digital editor, you are in charge of web-only stories, from short daily items to in-depth investigations and features, and maintaining the web schedule.

This position requires someone capable of stewarding all aspects of editorial production from story conception to line editing to writing headlines. You will work with the editor and managing editor as well as the reporting staff and freelancers to ensure the website is a healthy mix of smart commentary, fearless reporting, and timely news.

You will collaborate with the audience development manager and digital associate to coordinate social media promotion and SEO. You will also assist with magazine production, including proofing and light editing duties.

You must be a mission-oriented professional with an ability to work independently and think on your feet.

The digital editor must be based in Texas or willing to relocate.

Qualifications include

  • Excellent reporting, writing, and editing skills and three to five years of experience reporting and/or editing
  • Knowledge and passion for all things Texas, especially news and politics (or a willingness and ability to learn quickly)
  • A proven ability to juggle multiple and varied story projects, including both features and short, timely news items
  • An eagerness to seek out and develop young writers from across a diverse state
  • Familiarity with WordPress or other content management systems and social media, particularly Twitter

Benefits

  • Salary: $60K-$65K depending on experience
  • Medical, vision, and dental insurance.
  • 14 days of paid time off.
  • Up to three months paid family leave, plus
  • 401(k) company matching.
  • Support for professional training and attending industry conferences.

Please send cover letter, resume, and three writing samples to jobs@texasobserver.org by April 22.
