JOB DESCRIPTION

Since its founding in 1953, The Paris Review, the nation’s preeminent literary quarterly, has published the best new literature. The Review also has a robust online presence, which includes The Paris Review Daily, a complete digital archive, and a store selling subscriptions and merchandise. We publish three popular newsletters, put out venerated anthologies and a much-lauded podcast, host events, and occasionally make videos. It is a particularly exciting moment for the Review as, following a print redesign last year, we are now embarking on a digital relaunch.

We are seeking a digital manager to oversee the organization’s daily technical needs and online operations, and to work closely with the editors and the executive director in defining the Review’s digital presence and future. This is a role for a hands-on, organized, detail-oriented team player who likes seeing a job very well done. The digital manager will have the expertise and ingenuity to oversee the projects and platforms that the Review depends on to attract new readers and to delight the ones we already have. Acting as the project manager for the development and relaunch of the Review’s website, the digital manager will explore emerging technologies, gather and interpret data, work with web developers and designers, and keep track of best practices for publishing, audience development, and growth. 

Duties include: 

  • Managing and developing the Review’s website, including the home page, subscription pages, Shopify store, ad-distribution platform, and digital archive of the magazine
  • Assisting with the conception, production, and placement of digital content, including audio and video, social media content, newsletters, and marketing and promotional materials
  • Acting as the Review’s IT department, troubleshooting web and computing issues as they arise with the assistance of consultants; maintaining data-management and communications accounts as well as all other technical accounts
  • Gathering digital-marketing and traffic data to track engagement, and distilling findings into actionable strategies
  • Project managing the digital relaunch of the Review, working closely with the editors and with web developers to create an innovative, intuitive, and singular online presence

Desired Skills & Qualifications:

  • 3+ years of professional experience in a literary or arts organization and/or e-commerce environment, with experience in project management, managing online databases/digital content, working with and improving a proprietary CMS, and driving audience engagement 
  • Knowledge of Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite, Google Analytics and Google Ad Manager, SEM, SEO, PLAs, newsletter programs and audience targeting (Mailchimp), WordPress, and programming languages and tools (HTML/CSS, PHP, UTM)
  • Passion for literature 

Applicants should send their résumé and a cover letter that includes (a) an analysis of the current website’s strengths and weaknesses, including suggestions of three small improvements that could be made immediately, and (b) a description of the three qualities or capacities they would prioritize for the Review’s new website to opportunities@theparisreview.org. Please be sure to use the subject line “Digital Manager.”
