The Free Press is growing fast. We need experienced editors who can respond quickly to news events, craft smart stories, and get the best out of writers. You may be a newspaper editor used to daily deadlines. You might be a magazine editor with a gift for narrative, hungry to tell stories beyond the mission of your current outlet. Or you might be someone who has done both—and is simply craving a new challenge.


    • If this sounds like you, here are the criteria to apply:
    • At least five years working as an editor. You must also be currently working as an editor at a newspaper, magazine, news show, or other outlet.
    • A background that demonstrates you have worked on tight deadlines and can do work that is both excellent and fast.
    • A passion for The Free Press: you’ve read our stories, you understand our mission, and you know just how you can bring value to our team.
    • An ability to coach writers—especially writers just getting started in their careers—helping them deliver their best work.
    • Eagerness to work in a start-up environment. You aren’t just breaking news; you are building a newsroom. Our team is composed of people who are enthusiastic, nimble, and collaborative.
    • If you’re interested, please send a short cover letter explaining why you’re the right fit; a handful of ideas (of new writers we should be engaging or stories we should be covering); and your résumé.
$150,000 - $200,000 a year
