Are you following the drama of the tech buses? Are you familiar with the latest food trends? Is Oakland really the new "Brooklyn"? And do you want to join the team at SFist? We're hiring an editor with reporting and blogging skills who can cover a range of topics, from hard news to arts and food.
Responsibilities will include: Producing a healthy mix of informative and engaging blogging/aggregation posts; some original reporting; and editing stories written by others. You should be as comfortable reporting—pestering public officials, tracking down sources—as you are contemplating whether Ryan Gosling is at State Bird Provisions or if California will ever see a high-speed train.
This is a paid, full-time position, with fully covered medical, dental and vision benefits. As the main Gothamist office is in NYC, the new SFist editor will work from home (or wherever there's WiFi). Days and hours may vary from a normal 9-to-5 job. The ideal candidate MUST be versatile and knowledgeable about San Francisco and its surrounding areas.
Requirements: At least one year of full-time blogging experience, an instinct for what's newsworthy and the skills to report it out, a ferocious drive and piercing wit, a deep and abiding interest in San Francisco, and the stamina to create 6-8 well-written and interesting posts per day while helping manage the flow of pieces from other contributors.
If you're interested, send a brief email with a summary of your experience and relevant links to [email protected], subject "SFist editor." No need to follow up: if we're interested, you'll hear from us. No attachments, please.
