The Houston Press has an immediate opening for a managing editor. We're looking for a journalist with exceptional writing, editing and management skills who can meet the daily challenges of our rapidly expanding online content while supporting high-quality print work.
The ideal candidate will be able to work well with others, generate written and video story ideas and help plan coverage for weeks in advance. The managing editor, working in conjunction with the editor-in-chief and the web editor, supervises the day-to-day operations of the editorial department and helps staff writers and freelancers produce long-form features stories and daily blog posts.
The interview process will include an editing test.
