We're looking for a Managing/Production editor in the San Francisco office.
Are deadlines in your DNA? Can you manage up, down, sideways, and across time zones? Are you quick with an edit and graceful under pressure? Mother Jones is looking for a managing/production editor to coordinate and corral the work of reporters and editors in three bureaus, including overseeing the production of our award-winning print magazine. You should be a workflow genius, a skilled negotiator, ridiculously organized, flexible, meticulous, and a born collaborator. Your previous boss should call you charming AND ruthless. You should be comfortable managing staff bandwidth, overseeing fact-checking and legal review, calculating page counts, and rooting out errors. Pushovers need not apply.
And we've created a new, year-long documentary filmmaking residency (preferably in NYC):
If you're a filmmaker interested in partnering with an innovative newsroom focused on accurate, point-of-view narrative storytelling, the new Mother Jones documentary film residency may be perfect for you. This unique new program, supported by the Ford Foundation and Just Films, will give an emerging or early-career filmmaker a yearlong opportunity to embed in the newsroom, with a full-time salary and benefits, and the wraparound support of story editors, fact-checkers, social-media mavens, and crack lawyers.
Please see the links for the full job descriptions, qualifications and how to apply. I have nothing to do with hiring or vetting for either position and don't really know any more than what is on these pages. I'm just spreading the word.
