The New York Times

Social Editor, Kids
This is an important and exciting moment to work at The Times. Our journalism has never been stronger, more relevant or more in demand. Our products lead the industry and are used by millions of passionate and engaged users every month. And our strategy of providing journalism worth paying for has helped us rapidly grow our digital subscription and advertising businesses at the same time.

Our beautiful and beloved print section for Kids (runs in the paper on the  last Sunday of every month), is looking for an editor to help execute our digital editorial strategy on Instagram. This is a new role embedded in NYT for Kids editorial team, working closely with product and research to learn and grow while developing something completely new. The job requires both creativity and a data-driven, entrepreneurial approach: You will collaborate with NYT for Kids editors and designers to experiment with new digital formats and engagement methods.

The right candidate will have the ability to think strategically about using our archives of 3 years of print content,  and generating new ideas to grow and engage our audience. Strong, confident writing skills with a sense of humor is required, as is a strong visual sensibility.  Enthusiasm for playful experimentation, trying new ideas, bouncing back and tweaking on the go is a must. Fluency across all areas is not required, but applicants should demonstrate excellence in one or more categories and comfort experimenting in all.
