Job Description

From The Daily 360 at to the space calendar at to Smarter Living at to our dozens of guides, the newsroom is launching more creative projects than ever before. And we want to do still more.

We are looking for a senior editor to work with journalists across the newsroom to manage a pipeline of innovative work that is deeply rooted in Times journalism to keep The Times on the cutting edge.

The editor must be hugely creative, a quick study, highly organized, endlessly curious, and fluent in audience data. This person must have strong journalistic and digital instincts, and possess the diplomatic skills necessary to pull disparate groups together on tight deadlines.

The editor must understand the values of Times journalism and be able to appreciate how our storytelling has evolved. The editor will work with every desk in the newsroom to help bring their biggest ideas to life across every medium. The digitization of the photo morgue; the next big franchise and tentpole event coverage -- this editor will have a hand in all of that and more.

This person will serve as a bridge between the newsroom and the business side, and will work closely with colleagues in Revenue, Product, Technology and more.

The portfolio will include working with editors to understand the newsroom’s coverage priorities; launching special projects and stories; communicating with the rest of the building; managing calendars and ranking priorities.
