  • Team Leader for Pennsylvania Life & Culture Team
    PennLive/The Patriot-News
    Harrisburg

    PennLive.com is seeking a team leader for its Pennsylvania Life & Culture team.

    In this editor/reporter position, the successful candidate will help guide PennLive as we grow our audience across Pennsylvania. You will manage an excellent staff of reporters and stringers covering food, entertainment and life and culture issues. You will also produce high-performing posts that give people an understanding of what makes Pennsylvania unique.

    This is not a living department. Or an entertainment department. We use the term Life & Culture very carefully. 

    We want to focus on not just where we eat and play, but how we live and what separates us from the rest of the country. Also, what makes one area of Pennsylvania unique from another. Why is it the cheesesteak in Philly, but pierogis in Pittsburgh? Yo vs. Yinz. You get the idea. 

    PennLive.com is part of PA Media group, which also publishes The Patriot-News in Harrisburg, Pa. We are a Pulitzer Prize-winning legacy media organization that thinks like a startup.

    This is not an entry-level position. Please bring journalism chops with a keen eye for what works online. But if you are not comfortable with the ever-changing media landscape or working with analytics to help guide coverage, this is not the job for you.

    Anyone interested should apply to Mike Feeley, PennLive’s director of content, at mfeeley@pennlive.com.  Your application should include at least five links to relevant stories.

    Salary:  Negotiable

    Company websites:  pennlive.com; www.thepamediagroup.com
