Insider is hiring an assistant managing editor to help us grow and run our distribution team.

The managing editors are responsible for hiring our editorial staff, overseeing our fellowship program, and ensuring that Insider is an inclusive and diverse newsroom. We value open communication, teamwork, and creative problem solving.

The distribution team manages the publication of Insider stories across social platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Snapchat and more. The team uses data-driven strategies and dynamic social storytelling to optimize our stories for audiences across platforms.

The AME will recruit and hire the best editors, producers, and fellows to join our distribution team. The AME will lead recruitment efforts, guide potential job candidates through the hiring process, and work closely with our editors to figure out their team needs. As we expand our newsroom to go deeper on the things that make Insider great, the AME will help us find the right people to add to the team.

We’re looking for someone who is an excellent communicator, is organized, and has endless enthusiasm for digital journalism and for helping their colleagues be great at their jobs.

Some responsibilities will include:

  • Recruiting and interviewing full-time and fellowship candidates
  • Posting jobs and screening applications
  • Working with the other editors to make sure our teams are open and inclusive
  • Getting to know the fellowship classes twice a year, and working with editors to make sure they’re getting the most out of their time at Insider
  • On-boarding new hires and helping familiarize them with Insider
  • Making Insider a great place to work

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Impeccable communication and organization skills
  • Some experience with recruiting and hiring
  • Comfort with managing and advising staff
