CANADALAND is currently seeking a Managing Editor to join our management team. 

Managing Editor
Our team of staff podcast producers (currently 4) and freelance audio producers report to Canadaland’s Managing Editor, who provides both daily oversight of our audio slate and serves as a member of our editorial management team, contributing high-level input on which stories we tell, who tells them, and how. 

The Managing Editor ensures that teams set out on the right track, and have all of the necessary elements in place to make great audio. They are typically most involved at the beginning (story ideas, structural guidance) and end (quality control, final packaging) of the editorial process.

  • Helping develop story ideas and long-term editorial vision.
  • Hiring and onboarding production staff.
  • Managing freelancers and related budgets.
  • Working with sales team to ensure ads are compelling and effective while meeting our editorial standards.
  • Mentoring audio producers and developing production talent.

  • Proficiency with audio editing and familiarity with audio levelling / mixing.
  • Newsroom experience.
  • Canadian news/current affairs literacy and strong critical news sense.
