Open to remote work / New York, New York
NewsGuard is seeking an energetic and entrepreneurial journalist to oversee our special reports, newsletters, and other content not-yet-imagined. NewsGuard has produced “Nutrition Labels” for more than 6,000 news and information sites, while publishing impactful newsletters and special reports on issues such as how major consumer brands support misinformation sites through programmatic advertising and how Q-Anon spread to Europe. We are now looking for an ideas-driven editor to take charge of our special reports and other non-label content.
The ideal candidate to lead this effort is well-versed in media and journalism and has a record of accomplishment in launching editorial projects that adhere to the highest standards of accuracy and fairness. This editor will drive what promises to be a growing part of our business, overseeing content from inception to completion, generating ideas, creating production schedules, editing copy, and coming up with new ways that our content, data, and resources can be leveraged to create new value. Salary commensurate with experience.
Candidates will also:
+ Have excellent editing, writing, and reporting skills
+ Have experience navigating social media platforms and apps for online disinformation
+ Approach the role in a non-partisan, non-ideological manner
+ Be eager and willing to work for a fast-paced, early stage startup where the product and processes are continually evolving
+ Be committed to NewsGuard’s mission and vision
While the ability to work from our NY offices is a plus, it is not a requirement—remote options are possible.
