Tablet Is Hiring
Design director, digital audience guru
Tablet Magazine is looking for two new staffers to join our team, and where better to find them than among our dedicated readers. Pay is competitive, benefits are excellent, and the office is fun and relaxed, with not infrequent bagel breakfasts and delicatessen lunches.
Design director. We’re looking for a top-notch designer and UI/UX expert to oversee the look and feel of Tabletmag.com and related properties. The ideal candidate should be both an art person and a tech person, able to drive the design of the site and keep it functioning optimally. Experience in publication design is key, as is knowledge of online/SEO best practices. You can find the full job listing here.
Digital audience development director. We’re also seeking someone to oversee and execute all audience-development initiatives for Tabletmag.com and related properties. This person will be Tablet’s first and only full-time marketing staffer, responsible for all aspects of audience development, including product development, SEO, SEM, email, re-circulation, social media, partnerships, online traffic analysis, and consumer research. The full listing is here.
Daily rate: $2
Monthly rate: $18
Yearly rate: $180
WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.
We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
