The East Bay Express has an immediate vacancy for the position of music editor, the person in charge of editing our award-winning music section. The music editor will write one 850- to 1250-word story every week about local bands, music trends, show reviews, or music news; plus our Local Licks column (short CD reviews of local bands); a 250-word CD review; and two 150-word critic’s picks. The editor will also field pitches from freelancers, interact with publicists and club owners, and manage a budget. The music editor will also occasionally contribute news and feature stories to the front of the book. This is a full-time, 40-hours-a-week job with benefits, working at our Jack London office.
Our ideal candidate is someone with a deep knowledge of and passion for the diverse Bay Area music scene (and the East Bay in particular) — including indie rock, hip-hop, DJ, country, pop, folk, punk, metal, noise, jazz, and everything in between. Applicants must be extremely organized; detail-oriented; discerning; enterprising; and be able to write clean, engaging content.
How To Apply:
Applicants should send a résumé, three relevant clips, and a letter explaining why you’re right for the job to Co-Editor Kathleen Richards at Kathleen[dot]Richards[at]eastbayexpress[dot]com. No phone calls, please.
