Senior News and Culture Editor, MarieClaire.com – Hearst – New York, NY


Company: Hearst

Location: New York, NY

  • Full Time

Hearst

Hearst Magazines is looking for a Senior News and Culture Editor to join Marie Claire’s digital team. In this vital role, this person would be responsible for pitching, writing and/or assigning, editing, and publishing a robust lineup that runs the gamut from quick news items to juicy celebrity interviews to culturally resonant features to exciting new franchises. This position reports to the Digital Director of MarieClaire.com, and works closely with all departments.

We’re looking for someone who has a take on the latest celeb breakup and Trump’s impeachment proceedings; who can rattle off the list of former Bachelors as easily as they can name former White House employees.

The Senior News and Culture Editor can write quickly and with intelligence and humor, has endless ideas both big and small, and has serious internet savvy—someone who lives online and knows what readers respond to and what they don’t, and someone who cares about why.

Exceptional writing, editing, and brainstorming skills are essential, as are self-motivation and the ability to meet tight daily and weekly deadlines.

Responsibilities:

  • Pitch and write MarieClaire.com’s celebrity and politics news
  • Pitch and either write or assign/edit longer-lead and second-day stories and bigger features
  • Conduct celebrity interviews
  • Edit freelance writers
  • Determine which TV shows, movies, and events MC should be obsessed with right now
  • Coordinate with fact-checking and legal teams to ascertain stories meet all standards
  • Be intimately familiar with analytics, and program content accordingly

Experience:

  • Five + years creating content for a media property, preferably in digital
  • Three + years writing and editing entertainment content
  • Good judgment as to what works to drive audience and engagement
  • Excellent writing, editing, and brainstorming skills
  • Interest in women’s media, celebrity, news, politics, and women’s issues
  • Knowledge of SEO, Photoshop, and a CMS
  • Experience tracking real-time and long-term analytics
  • Bachelor’s degree


Note: For consideration, resumes must be submitted in .pdf format with a cover letter, salary requirements, and a link to a portfolio of work
