Job Description

The Washington Post is seeking an entrepreneurial and creative newsletter editor for the Help Desk, The Post's destination for personal technology coverage.

Working closely with Help Desk writers and our personal technology columnist, this editor will be responsible for producing a twice-a-week newsletter that will explore key consumer tech issues and bring the Help Desk's personal tech coverage to new audiences. Duties will include writing, editing and producing the newsletter, as well as curating and promoting the Help Desk team's existing content in new formats.

The ideal candidate will write from an engaging, approachable perspective and be able to spot unique and interesting takes on personal tech issues, always keeping the user-not the gadget or service-at the center of our coverage. Strong news judgment, a collaborative spirit and the ability to coordinate with multiple teams (including video, design and audience) are essential for this role. Familiarity with using analytics to inform editorial choices, newsletter production tools and experience growing and engaging audience will be a plus.

This position is based in our San Francisco office and will not be eligible for remote work.

The Post strives to provide its readers with high-quality, trustworthy news and information while constantly innovating. That mission is best served by a diverse, multi-generational workforce with varied life experiences and perspectives. All cultures and backgrounds are welcomed.

Interested candidates should upload a résumé with links to their work and a cover letter outlining their vision for the role to our jobs portal. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled, but those received by 06/06/2022 will be prioritized. Your cover letter should be addressed to Business Editor Lori Montgomery, Technology Editor Christina Passariello and Personal Technology Editor Yun-Hee Kim.
