Job Description

The Politics desk is seeking a new editor who will be a partner to the newsletter writer and who will also edit breaking news and politics pieces at night.

Newsletters have become trusted and popular forms of journalism, and the ideal candidate will care about newsletters as a medium for our reporting and writing and as an engaging product for readers. The editor will work collaboratively with the newsletter writer, providing ideas, research, experimentation and enthusiasm for the original content in the newsletter, and performing the line edit and coordinating art and design work with Photos and Graphics. The position requires an editor with excellent organizational and communication skills, an attention to detail and an openness to try new things as we create a new kind of politics newsletter.

The editor will also work with Times technology, analytics, product and newsroom colleagues to ensure that the politics newsletter provides the innovative experience that Times readers have come to expect on all platforms.

The editor will be the Politics desk’s crucial leader at night, working with the other team members, departments and the news desk on breaking politics news. The editor will do first and second edits on some stories, and will act as a liaison between Politics and the print hub at night.
