Website Editor (Vancouver)

Adbusters Media Foundation is looking for a mature, passionate, politically charged Web Editor who can take our online presence to the next level.

We're revamping our presence on the web to better reflect the heterodox spirit of our magazine: avant-garde, audacious, and unlike anything else. To that end, we're looking to bring aboard a forward-thinking Web Editor with the passion and drive to help create a striking digital complement to our print magazine.

Adbusters, the journal of the mental environment, is a staple of the counterculture. For three decades, our collective of dissidents and dreamers has been smashing ads, castigating corruption, and taking the powers that be to task — without ever accepting a single corporate dollar. From Buy Nothing Day to #OccupyWallStreet, we've been at the helm of some of our era's definitive toneshifting moments. Become a key part of our mission to forge radical new ways to live, love, and think.

The Web Editor will work closely with other editorial staff, including the Editor-in-Chief. The Web Editor's job consists primarily of the following tasks:

  • Editing, curating, and writing material for the web;
  • Executing the above within a potent, zhuzhed-up new design for our online presence;
  • Organizing campaigns and writing activist briefings;
  • Researching political, environmental, and related topics;
  • Communicating with our readers and the broader public.

A successful candidate will have the following qualifications:

  • Political and environmental savvy;
  • Strong writing and editing skills;
  • Strong digital skills;
  • The ability to work efficiently and effectively alongside a team of staff and contributors;
  • Curiosity and passion.
