The article you just read was brought to you by a few thousand dedicated readers. Will you join them?

Thanks for coming by The Tyee and reading one of many original articles we’ll post today. Our team works hard to publish in-depth stories on topics that matter on a daily basis. Our motto is: No junk. Just good journalism.

Just as we care about the quality of our reporting, we care about making our stories accessible to all who want to read them and provide a pleasant reading experience. No intrusive ads to distract you. No paywall locking you out of an article you want to read. No clickbait to trick you into reading a sensational article.

There’s a reason why our site is unique and why we don’t have to rely on those tactics — our Tyee Builders program. Tyee Builders are readers who chip in a bit of money each month (or one-time) to our editorial budget. This amazing program allows us to pay our writers fairly, keep our focus on quality over quantity of articles, and provide a pleasant reading experience for those who visit our site.

In the past year, we’ve been able to double our staff team and boost our reporting. We invest all of the revenue we receive into producing more and better journalism. We want to keep growing, but we need your support to do it.

Fewer than 1 in 100 of our average monthly readers are signed up to Tyee Builders. If we reach 1% of our readers signing up to be Tyee Builders, we could continue to grow and do even more.

If you appreciate what The Tyee publishes and want to help us do more, please sign up to be a Tyee Builder today. You pick the amount, and you can cancel any time.

Before you click away, we have something to ask you…

Do you value independent journalism that focuses on the issues that matter? Do you think Canada needs more in-depth, fact-based reporting? So do we. If you’d like to be part of the solution, we’d love it if you joined us in working on it.

The Tyee is an independent, paywall-free, reader-funded publication. While many other newsrooms are getting smaller or shutting down altogether, we’re bucking the trend and growing, while still keeping our articles free and open for everyone to read.

The reason why we’re able to grow and do more, and focus on quality reporting, is because our readers support us in doing that. Over 5,000 Tyee readers chip in to fund our newsroom on a monthly basis, and that supports our rockstar team of dedicated journalists.

Join a community of people who are helping to build a better journalism ecosystem. You pick the amount you’d like to contribute on a monthly basis, and you can cancel any time.

The Tyee Is Hiring a Managing Editor

Come join our independent newsroom. Applications open now until Jan. 2.

Jeanette Ageson 3 Dec 2021 | TheTyee.ca

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.
