Responsibilities will include writing headlines, selecting content to promote, managing the home page using our CMS, and assessing and responding to real-time traffic metrics. The ideal candidate would have excellent news and editorial judgment judgment; competency in navigating a powerful publishing system; and a knack for writing catchy, accurate headlines in Slate’s signature voice. We are also looking for a careful but quick thinker with fine-tuned copy-editing skills and attention to detail. The job will be based on Slate’s copy desk and may require an initial phase of weekday work and training alongside our home page team. This is a part-time contract position.
