Jobs

We're looking for a few excellent people to join our team. That said, we will also accept not-so-excellent people who have country houses with pools that we can use during the summer.

All positions are based out of our New York office.

Managing Editor

We're looking for a New York-based Managing Editor to help our editorial team curate and create the best stories on the internet for the front page of Digg. The ideal candidate will be a news junky and internet-obsessed. A sense of humor, creativity, and outside interests are a must. You’ll be managing the team’s direction day-to-day, so experience and comfort managing others is key. If you’re a Digg reader, and you’ve always wanted to try your hand at steering the page, this is your chance.

Responsibilities

  • Selecting new, breaking and/or high quality stories and videos to feature on the front page
  • Planning, writing and assigning topical original writing (You’re the kind of person who would have Digg’s Apple event liveblog planned and ready a week in advance)
  • Keeping up with "what the internet is talking about"
  • Managing editorial team priorities and tasks on a day-to-day basis, reporting directly into Editorial Lead

Requirements

  • 2+ years working in a fast-paced, internet-native editorial environment
  • Experience setting an editorial calendar (You’ve met the AP Planner before)
  • Comfortable managing others
  • Comfortable with topics ranging from tech to internet culture to fashion to politics
  • Really love coffee or can convincingly pretend to (it’ll help you make friends with the tech team)
