NEXTpittsburgh achieved record growth last year — with more than 2.1 million unique visitors — and we’re ramping up to do more in 2021. We’re looking for a managing editor to lead the way and guide our talented and dedicated editorial team.
The style, content and mission of NEXTpittsburgh is best served by a curious, hardworking person with a keen interest in and love for our city. What’s essential are top-notch writing and editing skills, familiarity with economic development in Pittsburgh and a sense of how to truly navigate the city — from parks and rec to dining and tech.
While we focus on the people and ideas advancing our region, we take a solutions approach to tackling the problems confronting us such as inequity, air quality and lack of diversity. Who’s doing what to help in these areas and just as important, how can our readers get more involved to enact change?
The managing editor position offers the right person a great opportunity to make a big difference in our community.
Experience with social media is a plus, including the skills to frame a story to optimize engagement and experience with managing, coaching and recruiting writers.
Willingness to learn could win out over lack of experience, so if you’re eager to apply, we welcome you to do so.
We love what we do and look forward to working with our next managing editor. Apply here!
