• A talent for finding original, revealing, and scoopy stories in a crowded media space;
• A track record of producing work that captured the public imagination and started national conversations;
• The big-picture editorial vision to help create a dynamic and successful new brand under the New York banner;
• A capacity both to work well on a team and to manage other employees and freelancers;
• A facility for conveying information visually -- that is, through graphics, animations, images, photos, etc;
• The ambition to create innovative new editorial forms that will help define this new brand for readers;
• A strong understanding of what makes content work on social media and a history of success to prove it.
