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.
We offer competitive salaries and benefits. Qualified candidates should send a cover letter, a résumé and clips to: HPfirstname.lastname@example.org
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
