Jeanette Ageson is publisher of The Tyee.

The Tyee is hiring a full-time managing editor to join our award-winning team.

The managing editor plays a critical role in our newsroom. They oversee daily newsroom operations and manage the story schedule. They are aware of all ongoing newsroom initiatives and work in tandem with senior editors to shape the daily story lineup. They are often the last pair of senior editorial eyes on a story, ensuring it’s in the best possible shape before publication. They oversee the home page editor and social media manager to ensure stories are well laid out and thoroughly promoted on all social media platforms. They are also the editorial touchstone for the newsletter manager.

The managing editor reports to the editor-in-chief. This is a new position at The Tyee.

The ideal candidate will have at least two years’ experience writing or editing news and features for a professional publication at the senior level. They will be quick and confident in their work, have demonstrated ability to build positive working relationships with a team, and show they can run newsroom operations effectively. And they’ll understand The Tyee’s approach to journalism.

The Tyee has been a leading Canadian independent news source for 18 years with a reputation for in-depth reporting that creates change.

Hours: Full time, 37.5 hours per week

Location: Vancouver, B.C.

Salary: $67,000

Benefits: Employees start with three weeks of paid vacation, a paid holiday break, extended health benefits and professional development funds.
