Dirt Rag & Bicycle Times Hiring for Online Editor Position

After nearly 14 years of involvement with Dirt Rag, and now Bicycle Times, yours truly is going to see if the grass is truly greener…though I’m not sure how much grass grows in the desert. As such, Dirt Rag and Bicycle Times are hiring an online editor. Here’s your chance to dig in the Dirt. The details:

Online Editor

Dirt Rag and Bicycle Times magazines have an immediate opening for an online editor. The right candidate will be responsible for posting content to each web site every weekday. This content can and will include posting print articles online, writing exclusive online articles, interviews, stories and coordinating other online content. Additionally, the online editor will be responsible for sending out email newsletters, engaging readers through our Facebook and Twitter properties, and working closely with office staff to maintain consistent coordination between the printed magazines and online properties.

Applicants must possess extremely strong and proven writing ability, a working understanding of basic online/internet concepts, the ability to work independently, and basic knowledge of how content management systems (such as WordPress and Drupal) function. Basic image editing skills are also required.

While this is a part-time position, there is a chance it can lead to full-time employment.

To apply, send a cover letter, resume, references and writing samples to Maurice Tierney at publisher@dirtragmag.com.
