The Seattle Times is looking for a Digital Editor to lead newsroom efforts to deliver news to local audiences via digital platforms.  As the Digital Editor, you will manage a team of digital producers and collaborate across the newsroom to publish news on digital platforms, including the website, news alerts, notifications, email newsletters and social media. You will listen to our audiences via analytics and use that information to adjust our daily news report. You should be comfortable working with our Product Team to develop new platforms and improve newsroom tools. You will help spread audience expertise and digital best practices across our newsroom. You will be expected to uphold standards of accuracy, ethics and inclusiveness in coverage. You’ll be working in a locally owned news company that is on the cutting edge of developing a sustainable business model for local journalism. The Seattle Times is an award-winning newsroom with a history of producing groundbreaking journalism for a broad regional audience. Independently owned by the local Blethen family for more than 120 years, The Times has won 11 Pulitzer Prizes, the most recent in 2020. It is considered a leader among major metropolitan newsrooms, producing rapid-fire breaking news, deep and richly told narrative and explanatory stories, high-impact investigative reporting, and powerful, gripping visual journalism.
