The New York Times

Senior Editor, The Daily
The New York Times Audio team is hiring a senior editor to play a key role in defining the editorial approach and direction of The Daily. The team behind The Daily gives listeners everything they need to know about one story to start each day, and that includes quick-turn daily news segments and complicated narratives (that are often produced over several days). The senior editor needs to be highly skilled at every aspect of editing — from structuring an episode, pacing and line editing to noting the stray breath that should be cut and the piece of music that comes in one beat too late. The senior editor must have a keen understanding of the news as well as a desire to challenge the conventional ways of telling it. The right candidate is an autonomous, curious, creative thinker who is excited to build and evolve the sound of The New York Times and thrives in collaborative, deadline-driven environments. The senior editor will work with and guide producers in determining what stories we tell and which reporters we work with, and in defining our angle and the level of production and resourcing required. The senior editor will be responsible for editing The Daily, including the final sign off at the end of the day.
