Managing Editor

Location: Tasting Table Headquarters in Soho, Manhattan, New York

Tasting Table has an immediate opening for a Managing Editor within its editorial team. Put simply, the managing editor's role is to ensure TT's overall editorial excellence. More specifically, the managing editor manages the day-to-day operations of the editorial team, ensuring all moving parts are in place, deadlines are adhered to and content publishes as planned.

This person is the quality control for the homepage and all other elements of TastingTable.com, making sure everything comes together in a cohesive and seamless manner, including working closely with the tech team to smooth out kinks and optimize new features. Relatedly, the managing editor acts as the editorial liaison to all other departments in order to execute sales, marketing and other company-wide initiatives.

In addition to being extremely detail-oriented, the managing editor must have a mind for the larger picture, maintaining a dynamic editorial calendar and executing larger editorial features, from the planning and conceptualization phases to completion. The managing editor should be able to interpret content metrics in order to develop strategies based on both successes and failures.

Finally, the managing editor should possess a sunny disposition, be solution-oriented, be ready to jump in on any task, small or large, and act as a resource for the entire team.

Qualifications:

  • 3 to 5 years managing editor experience, preferably in the food/drink/lifestyle space (although not required)
  • Whip-smart problem-solver with a basic understanding of HTML and coding
  • Digitally-minded CMS whiz with working knowledge of back-end technology
  • Sharp proofreading eye
  • Familiar with the Tasting Table editorial voice and style
  • Strong attention to detail, verging on obsession to re-check your work twice before becoming comfortable that the work is right.
  • Graceful under pressure
  • Superb communication skills
  • Multi-tasker
  • Profoundly incredible Googling capabilities
  • Fun, funny, easygoing but deadline driven and committed to delivering on time and beyond expectation

 

This is a full-time role with benefits (paid vacation + health & dental insurances, life insurance, short- and long-term disability insurance, paid Citibike membership, lots of food to taste coming out of our test kitchen, #etc). Compensation is based on experience level.

To apply, please send your cover letter and resume to managingeditor@tastingtable.com. If we think that you may be a fit, we will contact you for an interview.
