Job Description

The Washington Post is looking for a design editor to join our award-winning design department.

Designers at The Post are instrumental in our storytelling, informing the decision-making about the optimum use of visuals, text, audio and graphics in the construction of seamless and compelling experiences for our readers. We are looking for an editor who can guide designers in working with colleagues across the newsroom to achieve best-in-class digital storytelling, and who comes equipped with the requisite powers of persuasion and diplomatic tact.

The ideal candidate must be adept at responding quickly when news breaks and fostering collaboration. This person must have a keen design aesthetic, an understanding of art direction and the ability to elevate digital presentations. Development skills and previous management experience are a plus, as managing and mentoring staff are critical aspects of this job.

This editor will play an integral role in working across the newsroom to seek opportunities for growth and experimentation.

This position is based in our Washington newsroom. Once we resume normal operations, it will not be eligible for remote work. Night and occasional weekend work are required.

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.

Those interested should upload a cover letter, résumé and portfolio as PDFs to our jobs portal by Aug. 9. All your application materials can be uploaded to the same field. The cover letter should be addressed to Creative Director Greg Manifold and Managing Editors Tracy Grant and Krissah Thompson. Internal candidates can apply here.
