Deputy Editor

Job Summary

Honolulu Civil Beat is looking for an experienced editor who can help take a small staff of smart, passionate reporters to a higher level.

We are seeking a veteran journalist who will be responsible for helping oversee the overall management of the newsroom, including an editorial staff of about 20. You will be a vital member of the leadership team, setting the strategic direction of a growing online-only media operation.

The ideal candidate:

• Sees journalism as a calling, and is deeply interested in fundamental issues facing journalism today -- media trust, reader engagement, business and operational challenges
• Demonstrates success in investigative and watchdog journalism as a reporter and editor
• Keeps up with strategies and trends in the online news business, including new and innovative digital storytelling and engagement techniques
• Can mentor and lead a small editorial staff as well as pitch in on projects, help run a daily news operation, and juggle enterprise
• Has a real curiosity about or experience with Hawaii, and wants to make it home if it isn't already

We're willing to consider great candidates who may not have every skill on our ideal checklist. But you must have a clear idea of what you want to do with the wide-open opportunities that Civil Beat offers for journalists who are serious about making a difference.

About Us:

We offer competitive compensation and a comprehensive benefits package, including health and wellness benefits, 401(k) with employer match as well as work-life balance flexibility and opportunities for career development. Civil Beat strongly values a diverse workforce and encourages people from underrepresented communities to apply.
