Who We Are Looking For: 

“Anything good on Netflix?” If you’re the one all your friends come to with this question, you’re a great candidate for our new Entertainment editor.  

The Entertainment editor covers all of the most popular movies and shows, and all the different ways to consume them. We focus on big franchises like Marvel, must-watch series like The Mandalorian, and zeitgeisty hits like Queen’s Gambit. If it’s being talked about around a (virtual) water cooler, it’s in our purview. Coverage includes news, reviews, trailers, features, and interviews, but also service journalism explaining how to watch these shows. In the confusing labyrinth of streaming services our readers now have to navigate, the Entertainment editor is an expert navigator showing them which work with their budget, their devices, and their preferences.    

Section Editors are leaders. You’ll run a tight team of staff writers and freelancer contributors, decide where to focus resources, make calls on what events we should cover, and maintain a coverage calendar. You’ll take the long view and plan coverage months in advance, integrating research from a wide range of teams. Yet you’ll also have to make split-second decisions when unexpected news breaks.  

Section Editors are expected to share their industry knowledge with the Digital Trends audience via multiple media channels, growing their industry presence using popular digital platforms.   

This is a remote position, but preference will be given to candidates in the Portland, Oregon and New York tri-state area, which puts them near our offices, and in the case of New York, future industry events. Regardless of location, candidates should be willing to travel regularly as in-person meetings and events return to 2019 levels.  

What You'll Do: 

  • Develop and maintain expert-level knowledge of streaming entertainment services, and the most popular shows and movies.  
  • Oversee every level of content production from freelance writers to staff writers and editors.  
  • Identify trends and top-performing articles to shape future editorial efforts.  
  • Maintain relationships with key companies to ensure timely and extensive industry coverage.  
  • Hire and train new writers with an eye and ear to quality, speed, and voice.  
  • Write informed reviews, thoughtful analysis, and pointed opinion pieces.  
  • Represent Digital Trends within the assigned area of expertise on video, television, radio and in print.  
  • Provide constructive, forward-looking input to help shape Digital Trends’ editorial standards.  
  • Other duties as assigned.  

You Have: 

  • 3+ years' experience in editorial position focusing on entertainment and media.  
  • A deep passion and knowledge of the entertainment industry.  
  • Excellent writing and editing skills; able to write in a style that is interesting to the core audience.  
  • Communication and interpersonal skills; able to communicate and provide feedback effectively to others.  
  • Experience working with web content management systems (WordPress preferred) and Microsoft Office Suite.  
  • Excellent organizational and administrative skills and attention to detail.  
  • College degree in journalism or related field preferred.  
  • Broad knowledge of the current tech landscape beyond just entertainment is a necessity.  
  • Ability to handle multiple tasks effectively and meet deadlines.  

What's In It For You: 

  • Exceptional benefits package including: medical, prescription, dental and vision insurance, 401k, flexible spending accounts, pre-tax commuter transit and parking benefits, paid parental leave, sabbatical leave after 5 years of service, flexible paid time off, life insurance, company-paid short-term and long-term disability.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
