The Economist hiring in North America
Jason Fell of Folio reports that The Economist is now looking to add roughly 20 positions onto several others it has hired so far this year.
Fell writes, “The new jobs are primarily in sales, marketing and technical operations. Some titles include a global publisher partnerships director, a director of traffic and lead generation, and a Drupal developer.
“According to Alan Press, senior vice president of marketing and new ventures for The Economist Group, the new positions are part of a larger strategy to grow and expand The Economist brand. ‘As the company expands and moves in different directions, these are some of the areas that will help support those efforts.’
“Press says The Economist, which currently employs about 200 people in North America, added jobs to its Brand Innovation Business earlier this year and has hired other positions, including a senior director of new ventures, a commercial director, a director of new programs and an editorial director.”
