Editorial Assistant

The Role:

Protocol is seeking an editorial assistant to support and organize our efforts in recruiting and expanding the newsroom.

What You'll Need:

The ideal candidate will have a strong interest in media and technology, a passion for organization, strong written communication skills and a fluency with workplace productivity tools.

Daily work might include setting up job-candidate interviews, planning an editorial offsite, booking travel for a reporting trip or configuring a new story-tracking database. We're less interested in deep knowledge of a particular software tool and more interested in a track record of trying out, recommending and adopting new work technologies.

Work may include assisting reporters or editors with research or occasionally writing news briefs, but successful candidates will be strongly motivated to support Protocol's journalistic efforts with inward-facing work building the organization's editorial infrastructure.

Location: We prefer candidates in the San Francisco area but are open to candidates in New York and Washington, D.C. as well.

Apply: To apply, send a cover letter and resume, with Editorial Assistant in the subject line, to
