EdSurge is looking for a K-12 editor who is passionate about the people and ideas that shape how learners learn and teachers teach. This editor plays a key role in defining our coverage of K-12 educators and students, and how technology impacts their work. The ideal candidate will possess a knack for storytelling and helping others share their stories.

This editor will stay abreast—and sometimes ahead—of the news and conversations happening in the K-12 community, planning, assigning and reporting stories as needed. You will also serve as the voice of our weekly newsletter geared for K-12 educators and administrators.

You’re the kind of person who wonders:

  • How does technology impact teaching and learning in different environments?
  • What’s really working? What’s not? Why?
  • What should administrators, teachers and students know about this rapidly evolving industry?

In this job you will:

  • Keep daily pulse on K-12 news and stories relating to technology, organize coverage and report
  • Assemble, deliver and track results from our weekly “Instruct” newsletter for K-12 educators
  • Source, recruit and edit submissions from writers across the education community
  • Coordinate and manage editorial projects such as the 50 States Project
  • Edit articles from staff reporters as needed
  • Organize, speak and/or report from events (including ones run by EdSurge)

What makes you a great fit for this role:

  • 3+ years in a K-12 environment, preferably as a teacher or administrator
  • Comfort in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment (newsroom experience a plus!)
  • A passion for learning about the role technology plays in education
  • Outstanding writing and editing chops, and the ability to nurture writers
  • Ability to work independently under deadlines with minimal guidance
  • Strong interpersonal and public communication skills
  • Familiarity with monitoring social media channels
  • Ability to improvise and think on your feet
  • Comfort with occasional travel
