Company: GO Media
Location: New York
Posted on: June 12, 2021

Job Description:

G/O Media is the publisher of the web's most original media brands, including Gizmodo, Kotaku, Lifehacker, Deadspin, Jezebel, Jalopnik, The Root, The Onion and The A.V. Club, and reaches over 100 million unique visitors a month-more than one-third of all Americans. We connect with the young, diverse audiences that are shaping our future. Through fearless journalism, provoking comedy, and high-impact storytelling, we elevate the stories and issues our readers and viewers are passionate about.

About the Role:

Lifehacker is looking for a technology editor to cover how-to guides, explainers, recommendations, and cybersecurity across Windows, macOS, iPhone, Android, third-party apps, and more. This isn't a "news writer" role, but rather one focused on actionable service journalism that offers down-to-earth advice and guidance that can speak to both laypeople and techies. The right person is one who is obsessed with tech and helping others, but also able to speak about complicated processes in an understandable and approachable voice. The job involves staying on top of trending tech news and identifying the topics that would benefit Lifehacker readers. Examples of a Lifehacker tech story include things like cheaper Adobe alternatives, app recommendations, and device tutorials.

Essential Duties & Responsibilities:

  • Set the strategic direction of Lifehacker's tech coverage
  • Ensure the site's tech coverage meets editorial standards and positions Lifehacker as authoritative and agenda-setting
  • Continue Lifehacker's voice based on strong opinion, conversational style, and skepticism of conventional wisdom
  • Oversee daily production of the site's tech content output

Qualifications:

  • You should be a technological jack-of-all-trades who can hack their way through any digital problem
  • You should be obsessed with the future, productivity, and safety, and the tools shaping them
  • You should have a thoughtful and informed point of view to bring to our technology coverage
  • You should be able to creatively exploit the internet for story ideas
  • You should be capable of managing freelance writers while writing and editing both shorter news-related stories and longer features

G/O Media is deeply committed to fostering a transparently inclusive workplace environment and people of color, women, people with disabilities, veterans, and LGBTQ candidates are very strongly encouraged to apply. Our company-wide mission is to reach very diverse audiences and so, we are deeply committed to having teams and leaders that reflect this mission.
