Managing Editor, Lifehacker

New York

Lifehacker, Gizmodo Media Group's lifestyle site with 14 million monthly users, is looking for an experienced managing editor to run the day-to-day operations for the site.

The ideal applicant is an enthusiastic, organized editor and curious writer with experience managing an editorial calendar and monthly budget in a fast-paced digital environment.  They should be a strong leader with excellent communication skills and a passion for helping people  “live their best lives”—but less in an Oprah and more a MacGyver sort of way. 

They can explain in a way that's entertaining and engaging stuff that might, in lesser hands, come off as boring. 

As managing editor, you will:

- Be organized, detail-oriented, and a careful editor and copy editor  

- Have strong opinions and a witty, conversational writing voice 

- Be psyched to help the Lifehacker grow in scope, output and audience 

- Manage schedules and deadlines for Lifehacker’s editorial, video and podcast endeavors

- Be an integral part of a small, fun, exciting team
