The American Prospect is recruiting a publisher with expertise in digital operations. This is a redefined senior position that will combine the traditional functions of a publisher (organizational leadership, planning, and management) with focused responsibilities for expanding the magazine’s use of digital platforms.

Now in its 28th year, the Prospect is a liberal/progressive magazine based in Washington, D.C., with a paid staff of 13. Our principal publications are a quarterly magazine in print and digital formats and a daily offering of commentary and reporting at and on social media. The Prospect also has an opt-in e-list that it uses both for daily emails by its editors and for fundraising.

The new publisher will be the team leader for all things digital, as well as fundraising and communications, and will work closely with the editors on the magazine’s editorial content and strategy. The traditional publishing responsibilities will include leadership of business operations aimed at increasing revenue and both online and in-person fundraising.

Candidates must have significant experience in:

  • Management and leadership;
  • Digital growth of email, web traffic, and social media, and related income;
  • Online fundraising;
  • Supervision of website design, SEO, etc.; and
  • Strategies for collaborating with kindred groups to expand impact and income.

Candidates should also possess:

  • Compatible political values; and
  • Interpersonal skills and ability to work in groups.

This position begins in the early fall. The salary will reflect experience and performance, and include a bonus structure and excellent benefits.
