Jewish Currents is Seeking an Associate Editor

March 28, 2017

Jewish Currents, a 72-year-old progressive Jewish magazine and small media company (“Activist Politics & Art”), is seeking an associate editor, very full-time after part-time trial period. Job requires strong writing skills (we’d appreciate a writing sample or two) and social media competence; progressive political passion and creative instincts; Jewish cultural and historical knowledge; ability to network with people. Pluses include magazine experience; design skills (e.g. knowledge of InDesign and Photoshop); basic business know-how to partner in running a small non-profit. Candidates should reside in, or be willing to relocate to, the New York metropolitan area or surrounding region.
We have new funding and big ambitions. Work involves autonomy (work at home) and self-motivation; many creative opportunities; chances to learn alongside a skilled editor/entrepreneur and grow quickly into the top position; outlet for self-expression; a devoted, multi-generational readership; participation in building a progressive movement; and many institutional resources with which to work (high-functioning website, handsome magazine, searchable historical archive, etc.). Our intention is to find a person who can bring Jewish Currents, and the progressive Jewish sensibility it represents, into the future. Pay and benefits commensurate with skills and needs. Let’s talk.
