The Juice is a pre-revenue EdTech start-up looking for an impactful, creative team leader and editorial head. Our technology underpinnings took over three years to develop. Engaging content and groundbreaking technology are the bedrock of our innovative learning platform.
As the Editor in Chief, you will manage an extraordinary team of journalists and educators in writing, editing, and producing 1) a daily educational newsletter for middle school and high school students, 2) an afternoon newsletter for their parents, and 3) our website presence.
The student newsletter, The Daily Juice, is dedicated to creating engaging, non-biased content concerning current affairs. It is produced at four different reading levels covering 5th through 12th grades. The newsletter has built-in assessment questions, vocabulary builders, infographics, vocabulary tools, and videos.
The parent/adult newsletter, The Afternoon Digest, is produced in concert with The Daily Juice specifically for Juice parents and adults.
Our sister website is an independent and nonpartisan news aggregator that uses news sources from across the political spectrum. The website is updated 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our 12-person curation team spans the globe.
You will need to exercise sound news judgment, write and edit well, have extensive knowledge of both domestic and international news, and the ability to approach news in the most unbiased way possible. As a start-up, we are looking for a leader with boundless energy, creativity, empathy, and great managerial skills.
Compensation: Commensurate with experience but within a $65-80,000 range and includes full benefits.
Addition Juice Learning Company info: We are experienced educators, journalists, and technologists who are seriously committed to making students better critical thinkers, communicators, and citizens by equipping them with the tools to thrive in the 21st century.
We are equally committed to making teachers’ lives easier by making The Juice a plug-and-play solution. We empower educators to make informed learning decisions with individual and class-wide diagnostic data.
Our content philosophy is simple: Engaging content engages learners. We monitor, evaluate, debate, and hold ourselves to high standards, and always follow the Golden Rule. To achieve the highest levels of journalistic integrity, we write all of our stories in-house. We value neutrality, and we do not repurpose news articles from third parties.
We want as many students and teachers as possible to benefit from The Juice, no matter their background. That’s why we have a sliding scale for under-funded schools and community groups. We’re on track to provide 30,000 students with access to The Juice for free this year.
A College degree with a post-graduate degree preferred. Meaningful experience in content production management, employee management, editing, and writing. Ideally 15 years experience in journalism with at least five of those years at a national news organization.
