Night Editor 2

Description:

Night Editor, VTDigger

VTDigger— Vermont’s statewide, nonprofit news outlet — is seeking an editor with proven digital publishing experience to anchor its night desk. This person will work with a team of editors and reporters to publish thorough, accurate, accessible, well-written copy with a top-notch visual presentation. 

We expect excellent editing chops, organizational and communication skills, and attention to detail. You will be responsible for final reads, minor rewrites, fact-checking, identifying errors and omissions, conforming to VTDigger’s style, and working with reporters to ensure the fairness and accuracy of stories. Given VTDigger’s commitment to better serving the communities we cover, we’ll expect you to edit with a lens of equity and inclusion. 

You will be responsible for the presentation of stories on VTDigger’s website and you’ll have a variety of responsibilities related to social media, newsletters, graphics, opinion and obituaries. When news breaks after hours, you’ll determine what steps to take and may cover it yourself. You’ll report to a senior editor and collaborate with all of VTDigger’s editors to ensure that standards and deadlines are met — and to improve our work processes and organizational culture. 

This position requires afternoon, evening and some weekend work. 

Compensation & Benefits: The salary range for this full-time role is $55,000 to $60,000 annually (commensurate with experience). We offer industry-leading benefits in a positive and flexible work culture. These include 5+ weeks of paid time off plus holidays, parental leave, generous employer contribution to medical insurance, available group vision and dental insurance, and employer-provided EAP, life and disability insurance. We offer a 403(b) retirement plan with employer contribution.

Interested candidates should submit a resume and cover letter and complete this online form for consideration. See the full job description here. The deadline to apply is June 10, 2024, at 11:59 p.m.  

We encourage members of communities that are traditionally underrepresented and misrepresented in the media to apply to join our team, including those who are Black, Indigenous or people of color; women; LGBTQ+ people; and people with disabilities.
