Task & Purpose is looking for a digital news editor to work in our New York office.
Task & Purpose is among the largest and fastest growing military news sites on the web, garnering 1 million unique pageviews in the month of September, just five months after launching.
We’re seeking to give voice and boost the visibility of a new great generation of millennial veterans. In the six short months that we’ve been active, we’ve engaged our passionate audience on a multitude stories, including occasionally tough topics, ranging from career advice to sexual harassment on social media.
Now we’re looking for the next important part of our small, but dynamic team; someone who loves the news and the digital era. Working with the editor-in-chief and managing editor, the News Editor will chiefly manage our news aggregation feature, the skyline, write original content for the publication, and engage with our audience on a variety of platforms.
Military experience helps, but is not necessary. What is necessary is a passionate interest in current events, (especially military, veterans, and foreign affairs), social media, and digital communications.
Please send inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org with “news editor” in the subject line. Send a resume and a cover letter letting us know why you’d be a good fit. Don’t be afraid to show your personality.
