Current Affairs is looking to hire someone to fill the position of Online Editor. The editor’s job will be: reviewing pitches, recruiting new writers, working closely with writers to shape and improve their articles, and ensuring that high-quality, exciting reading material is posted daily to the magazine’s website.
We are looking for someone who is either resident in New Orleans or willing to relocate (basic relocation expenses will be covered). Applicants elsewhere who cannot relocate will be considered but we would strongly prefer someone who can work out of our office.
Salary is $45,000 annually plus health insurance costs. All Current Affairs full-time staff are paid equally. We believe in making working conditions fair and non-exploitative, and we are flexible with when and how you work. As a small media organization trying to survive and thrive in a highly competitive landscape, though, we need someone who will work hard and truly believes in what they are doing. We do not expect or require more than 40 hours a week, but while you are here, there is much to be done and we need someone who applies themself fully within the existing team environment. We recognize that we are asking a lot for the compensation being offered but it is our expectation that as the magazine grows, compensation will grow accordingly.
