The New York Times has long published exceptional service journalism that provides straightforward, sound advice on what tocook, where togoand what tobuy.
Now we are turning to a creative editor to give us guidance on how to expand those efforts.
We’re looking for a senior editor to create a unified vision for our service journalism and to steer the operation. You’ll work closely with newsroom leaders and with product teams to define a coherent mission for consumer-focused journalism across The Times. This editor will oversee Well, Smarter Living and Guides, and will be the primary liaison with Wirecutter. In addition, this editor will work closely with Food, Travel, Culture and other desks to ensure a harmonized approach to the way we give about life and living.
The ideal candidate will have 3-5 years of experience leading an editorial team. They should be a self-driven leader with a proven track record of operating effectively with multiple teams. Ideally, this person will also have partnered with cross-functional groups: story and visual editors as well as product managers, designers and engineers, among others.
We are eager to hear ideas about how to expand and better our already inspired service report. We invite applicants to share their ideas and thoughts about how to make Times service journalism more engaging and relevant.
The New York Times is committed to a diverse and inclusive workforce, one that reflects the varied global community we serve. Our journalism and the products we build in the service of that journalism greatly benefit from a range of perspectives, which can only come from diversity of all types, across our ranks, at all levels of the organization. Achieving true diversity and inclusion is the right thing to do. It is also the smart thing for our business. So we strongly encourage women, veterans, people with disabilities, people of color and gender nonconforming candidates to apply.
