Quarterly literary magazine founded in 1953.
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.
Desired Skills & Qualifications:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to use the subject line “Digital Manager.”
