DDM - Deseret Digital
  • 24-May-2017 to 01-Aug-2017 (MST)
  • Deseret Connect
  • Salt Lake City, UT, USA
  • Full Time

The DDM Story Lab Manager balances time between a few different, yet related worlds: Not only does he or she manage the Deseret Connect contributor network, but the Story Lab Manager also works closely with video, graphics & native advertising teams to help fulfill campaigns.


Deseret Connect is fueled by a global network of writers who love to write and tend to have expertise on certain topics. The Story Lab Manager is responsible for overseeing that network of writers. The Manager will be a key resource for DDM publishing editors as well as our growing global network of media partners.


We're looking for a passionate, talented manager who brings out the best in others.


He or she believes the world needs awesome content to stand out from the mix of depressing or mindless content that often fills news sites and Facebook feeds. He or she uses media to help improve lives.


He or she will be an avid content consumer who's interested in understanding what makes great content great and will then guide others in the creation of that great content.


Our manager will be a champion of his or her writers.


He or she will be versatile enough to focus on many different writers, strategists, content types and publishers both internal and external.


As Story Lab Manager, you will:

  • Create and help coordinate multimedia projects with video, graphic & text components

  • Cultivate a growing network of remote contributing writers

  • Develop new ways to engage and advocate for contributors

  • Help brainstorm and execute sponsored campaigns

  • Manage a team of remote editing coaches


You know this is the right job for you if:

  • You live happily at the intersection of creative innovation and hard data

  • You are equal parts eager collaborator and motivated self-starter

  • You foster a respect for traditional journalism but recognize the possibilities offered by new visual and digital tools

  • You're familiar with AP style, and you quietly edit work emails, news articles & even Facebook statuses just by force of habit

  • You relish the chance to pick up new tools & skills

  • You enjoy editing video, GIFs and images for social applications

  • You recognize the subtle nuances behind different publications and audiences

  • You get a perverse joy out of juggling complex projects and varying deadlines

  • You have a sixth sense for picking out stories that will perform well on various platforms
