The Awl Seeks Editor in Chief

After four years of online publishing, The Awl is looking for an editor-in-chief.

The site opened in 2009 and has published lots of authors, longform essays and literary coverage, so GalleyCat readers might want to check out the posting. Here’s more about the job:

Applicants need to be seriously entrepreneurial in nature and welcoming of risk. The editor-in-chief will need to be able to execute long-term dream-schemes while responding to the horribly immediate. The job combines the thrill of executing a larger vision with the tyranny of managing a constantly overflowing inbox. This role has a large amount of autonomy, and therefore applicants need to have the attention to detail of a great managing editor, the confidence of an editor-in-chief and the moral compass of a columnist. Most importantly, we are primarily a horizontal and non-hierarchical organization, with an extremely strict no-assholes policy. Behavior is as much prized as talent; genuineness is as valuable as genius … Finally, candidates need to be based in or around New York City.
