The New York Times

Title
Staff Editor, Home Team
Details
A key goal for The Times is to increase reader engagement by improving the experience of connecting with Times journalism, particularly on our home screens. The Home team is at the heart of these engagement efforts in the newsroom, and we are seeking editors who are passionate about achieving that goal. Home team editors are responsible for the programming and presentation of our own digital platforms, including the home screen and push notifications, in accordance with our strategic goals. They stay abreast of breaking news, recalibrating our presentation and mobilizing editors and reporters as necessary. They also review the quality and tone of what we publish to ensure that Times standards are met and that our content is properly produced. 

The ideal candidates will be able to quickly and cleanly execute changes to the layout and order of the home screens while showing creativity and initiative in presentation and framing. Candidates must be able to work well under pressure, set priorities among many tasks and keep up with the demands of multiple editors. Sensitivity to visual design and user experience is crucial; some knowledge of HTML and CSS is helpful. We are looking for technical aptitude and are willing to train the right candidates.
