leave a comment »

We’re looking for a new director—a creative thinker with solid management experience and a passion for digital journalism. In this role, you’ll manage a team of agile developers and partner with editors across Tribune Publishing (our publications include the Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Sun, Orlando Sentinel and many others).

You will work with the team in Chicago and collaborators in newsrooms across the country to identify needs and opportunities, provide technical guidance and recommendations, shepherd special projects and facilitate clear communication between stakeholders.

You will problem-solve. You will prioritize. You will insist on transparency in our processes. You will ruthlessly simplify to provide our audience with useful, compelling content. You will show your work. You will work with brilliant, wonderful developers, reporters, photographers, designers and editors.

Your qualifications:

  • Experience in digital media, data journalism or a related field
  • Experience in digital product development
  • Computer science and/or journalism background preferred (you don’t need to be a developer, but you need to work well with developers)
  • Project management, negotiation and analytical skills
  • A deep understanding and commitment to open source
  • Passion for the news
  • Curiosity and enthusiasm about exploring new storytelling formats
