<p><strong>Scope of Assignment x You</strong></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">VICE News is looking for a part-time senior editor to join our ambitious, growing digital news offering out of the United States. This position requires an experienced digital editor and manager with excellent judgment, comfort editing and publishing in a fast-paced, digital setting, a deep understanding of the VICE News brand, and a drive to find and publish the best stories across the entire region. This editor will work closely with the editorial director, manage a small team and be responsible for assigning and editing a range of story formats, including enterprise features, engaging interviews, and breaking news; as well as areas of coverage.&nbsp;</span></p>

<ul>
<li><span style="font-weight: 400;">Minimum of 5 years of journalism experience as a writer or story editor</span></li>

<p><strong>We’d love if you also had these:</strong></p>
<ul>
<li><span style="font-weight: 400;">A collaborative spirit, and the ability to work across departments and global offices.</span></li>
</ul>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We want to find people who believe in our goals and feel inspired enough to grow while they’re here to fill the role, rather than someone who checks the boxes but isn’t invested. We encourage you to apply and show us what you’ve got.</span></p>
<p><strong>Working at VICE</strong></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">VICE prioritizes the ideas and people that other media companies miss. We believe that innovation is a direct result of diverse, inclusive cultures so we don’t just “tolerate” differences, we celebrate it and see it as essential to our staff, culture, and business.To learn more read the</span><a href="https://viceguideto.vice.com/"> <strong>VICE Guide to VICE</strong></a></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">If the job should transition to a full-time employment opportunity, VICE offers comprehensive benefits including but not limited to trans-inclusive benefits, fertility benefits, and tuition reimbursement. We also have dog-friendly days, bagel Fridays, and the occasional drag show in our conveniently located Williamsburg office. Day-to-day you can enjoy a rooftop garden full of edible produce (in the summer), beer, snacks and the opportunity to make the work of a lifetime if you’re into that sort of thing, which we hope you are.</span></p>
