We are looking for fresh and exciting voices who love the area of our coverage–Bushwick, Ridgewood, and East Williamsburg, and ideally reside in it.
Specifically, we are looking for a Managing Editor/Content Director who understand the changing dynamics of the neighborhood and are willing to tell a representative story that covers both old and new voices.
Why should you consider working for us?
Bushwick Daily is a beloved, independently owned local publication of 8 years with over 200k readers a month. Thanks to your involvement with Bushwick Daily you’ll have an opportunity to tell the story of one of the most interesting neighborhoods in the city. Moreover, many major New York publications closely follow Bushwick Daily, which will put your work in the spotlight, and it’s only up to you to seize the opportunity!
Our alumni have gone on to work for The New Yorker, The NY Times, Vice, MTV News, DNAinfo, Daily News, Salon, and many more! Please be aware that we are a local publication, which creates its revenue from the sale of mostly local advertising, which is hardly comparable to city-wide or national publications. The pay is modest, but the payoff can be huge!
Specifically we are looking for people to fill the following positions:
