The Hechinger Report is looking for a Digital News/Photo Producer to help prepare stories and newsletters for publication and select and edit photos for stories.
The Digital News/Photo producer will join a small web team supporting staff and freelance writers and editors. We are not a breaking-news outlet; our aim is to provide deeply reported and insightful coverage of crucial issues faced by students, colleges and universities across the country. We are a collaborative newsroom distributed across the country.
This position will take the lead in preparing content for our website, working closely with editors and reporters. The job will also include extensive headline writing and SEO workshopping, with the guidance of the Web Editor. This position will assist the Multimedia Editor in taking and organizing photos, editing captions and selecting and preparing photos for use on our site and by partner publications.
A strong candidate will have some experience with photography and content management platforms. Experience in journalism is essential. Hechinger works in WordPress, Mailchimp, Google Suite and Analytics, Dropbox, Photoshop and Slack.
This position will be remote, based anywhere in the US. The Hechinger Report is an independent nonprofit, nonpartisan organization based at Teachers College, Columbia University, and this position includes the College’s comprehensive full-time benefits package, described here.
