VICE is opening a new office in Indonesia and we’re looking for a managing editor to join our team. Ideal candidates would be bilingual (English and Bahasa Indonesia) with three to five (3-5) years experience working in the media and a wide-ranging set of interests that touch on the various verticals VICE has to offer.
Candidates who are also comfortable on-camera are a plus.
- The managing editor will be tasked with overseeing our Bahasa Indonesia coverage. The role requires someone who can edit stories, manage staff writers and think of ideas that add to our coverage. We have a small team and our office environment is more of “startup” than “big media company.”
- The tone and style of the writing is a big concern, so the managing editor will need to develop guidelines for an appropriate tone (VICE is, at times, authoritative and also conversational in the way we write). Our stories need to be less formal than the newspaper, but not as loose as a personal blog. It’s a difficult balance to strike, and it’s one you will have to develop and maintain with our staff writers, translators and freelancers.
- Our coverage includes news stories, op-eds, Q&As and news features on a wide-variety of topics, including arts, music, culture, the environment, food, politics, terrorism, fashion, gender issues … the list goes on. We are basically looking for well-rounded candidates who feel as comfortable working on a story about on working conditions in the agricultural sector as they do conducting a humorous Q&A with a rising indie band.
