FiveThirtyEight is hiring an editor to run our sports section, one of the most significant senior editor positions on our staff. The person in the position, who will report to the managing editor, will be in charge of breaking sports news, features and projects related to major events like the World Cup, the NCAA basketball tournament and the Olympics.
We’re looking for someone who loves the subject in the passionate and geeky way the site does, a journalist who’s interested in both the drama of a game and the numbers behind it. Translating stats for the common fan isn’t always easy, but we have the best team anywhere doing it every day. Working with them promises to be a great deal of fun.
The role, which is based in New York, requires editing and management experience. Please do not apply by email; for details and to apply, go to the Disney Careers website.
