Global Voices is seeking a co-Managing Editor

Global Voices is seeking to hire a half-time co-Managing Editor.

THE JOB: The co-Managing Editor will be responsible for working with Global Voices’ other co-Managing editor on:

- coordinating content flow on the Global Voices web site
– running regular online editorial meetings
– managing the work of our rapidly expanding international team of Regional Editors and volunteer contributors
– liaising with our news media collaborators and partners.

He or she will be an active part of the Global Voices senior management team, helping steer the project further into non-text media, other languages and implementing new technologies and tools.

As Global Voices is a virtual organization, the co-Managing Editor will not be expected to relocate. However, he or she must have regular access to high-speed internet connectivity and will be expected to be on spot to provide timely responses to matters arising during the work day. The job may involve some travel. Salary and other compensation will depend on the candidate’s experience.

THE REQUIREMENTS
: Our ideal candidate has solid experience in blogging and online citizens’ media and at least some experience with professional news media. He or she has the ability to work independently and responsibly with only remote supervision and enjoys pioneering uncharted territory. Solid English-language writing and editing skills are a must. Programming/HTML knowledge are not required, but strong familiarity with the use of online social media tools (blogging platforms, aggregators, use of RSS feeds, and tagging) is important.

He or she must be a diplomatic team player capable of communicating effectively with bloggers as well as with media personnel, making quick but effective decisions and coming up with solutions for managing and motivating an online community of volunteers. Ideally, he/she will have the ability to read and write well in at least one language other than English and have a working knowledge of other languages. Preference will be given to candidates from outside the United States and Western Europe.

To apply, please send your CV and a letter of interest to editor@globalvoicesonline.org. The application deadline is Friday May 4, 2007.

  • It certainly is an interesting online opening. May the right guy make it to the right job.

  • […] Iwapo ungependa kufanya kazi bila kwenda kazini…na una sifa za kutosha, basi usisite kutuma maombi yako. Global Voices Online imetangaza nafasi ya kazi ya Co-Managing Editor. Kazi yenyewe ni ya mtandaoni, ndio maana nikasema “kufanya kazi bila kwenda kazini” maana hutakuwa unaamka asubuhi kwenda ofisini. Watuma maombi toka nje ya Ulaya na Marekani wanapewa kipaumbele zaidi. Kazi kwako. Hela utakayolipwa kama unaishi Tanzania itakuwezesha kukodi mgahawa wa Intaneti kwa mwaka mzima! Yaani utaingia pale kwenye mgahawa na kuwaambia wafunge kwani “kuanzia sasa hii itakuwa ni ofisi yangu!” Bonyeza hapa usome tangazo hilo. Kama hufahamu vizuri Global Voices ni nini, bonyeza hapa.   […]
