The Washington Post is looking for an energetic multiplatform editor in Sports.

We're looking for someone with solid news judgment and an ability to guide reporters covering games and other live deadline events.

The hours for this job vary but generally are during evenings from 4:30 p.m. to midnight. Weekend shifts should be expected, as well as some holiday work. A copy editing test will be required.
