Wick Communications is seeking a data-savvy News Editor to lead a new digital publication covering housing, development, urban growth and business in Tucson.
Our mission is to deliver useful, interesting journalism through written articles, maps, guides, multimedia and newsletters. We’re looking for someone who’s passionate about telling data-driven stories that make an impact.
In this role, you’ll have direct influence in shaping the editorial direction for this yet-to-be-launched publication. The News Editor will be the publication’s only full-time editorial position to start, but will have a pool of freelancers to round out daily coverage.
Your work will be supported by Wick Communications’ award-winning digital/audience team and editorial director, who are all based in the greater Tucson area.
Produce 1-2 stories weekly (mix of traditional story formats, maps or data-driven pieces, etc.)
Write our flagship email newsletter
Manage our homepage and social media
Coordinate a small team of freelance writers, columnists and photographers
Experience with data visualization tools, such as Datawrapper or Tableau, is a must
Familiarity with digital production (best practices for SEO, homepage management, audience engagement) is a plus
Experience managing user-facing databases using no-code/low-code tools is a plus
Journalism degree or comparable education/experience is required
We’re looking for someone based in the Tucson area, but this is a majority work-from-home role. Some in-person time is expected for meetings, events and news coverage.
This is a full-time position with an expected salary range of $50,000 to $55,000. It includes full benefits, including health and dental insurance, paid time off and a 401k retirement plan.
Please send a resume, cover letter and work samples to General Manager Reilly Kneedler at email@example.com. This position will be open through July 30, then applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until it’s filled.
