How Many Ideas Do You Have? BuzzFeed needs a Deputy Editor pronto for the feed!

Buz­zFeed Ideas is seek­ing a full-time deputy edi­tor to join their grow­ing team in either New York City or Los Ange­les offices. If you’re curi­ous Buz­zFeed def­i­nite­ly isn’t just a load of lists. It also does news, long-form fea­tures and videos.  But since it launched in 2006, Buz­zFeed has changed the dig­i­tal land­scape con­sid­er­ably. From region­al to nation­al and inter­na­tion­al media, everyone’s try­ing to imi­tate it for one sim­ple rea­son – what Buz­zFeed does real­ly does work. Buz­zFeed now has offices all over the world, includ­ing Lon­don, Mum­bai, Syd­ney and Paris.
This posi­tion will report to the Exec­u­tive Edi­tor, Cul­ture and work with her on build­ing on the suc­cess of Buz­zFeed Ideas.

They are look­ing for an edi­tor with three or more years of expe­ri­ence to help work with a diverse array of free­lancers and staffers on per­son­al essays on top­ics includ­ing sex and rela­tion­ships, race, iden­ti­ty, mon­ey and debt, sex­u­al­i­ty, aging, men­tal health, and death and mourn­ing, as well as cul­tur­al crit­i­cism on a wide range of time­ly sub­jects. They’re look­ing for some­one who has edit­ed estab­lished writ­ers but is also inter­est­ed in cul­ti­vat­ing new voic­es, who is a strong line edi­tor but is also a mas­ter at restruc­tur­ing a piece with­out rewrit­ing it or los­ing the writer’s voice.

They want some­one who is gen­uine­ly inter­est­ed in explor­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ties of first-per­son sto­ry­telling and excit­ed about steer­ing the cul­tur­al con­ver­sa­tion on Buz­zFeed and social media, and who is obsessed with how these sto­ries share online.

Don’t play your­self, if you don’t have pro­fes­sion­al edit­ing expe­ri­ence you won’t even be looked at.
