Type Investigations (formerly The Investigative Fund) is a nonprofit newsroom for independent journalists, dedicated to incubating investigative reporting with the potential for social impact. Our investigations are published or broadcast in partnership with a wide variety of print, broadcast and online outlets. Our stories have sparked FBI investigations, Congressional inquiries, federal indictments, the resignation of public officials, and more; they have also won many of journalism’s top awards, including the Emmy, the Peabody, the Polk Award, the National Magazine Award, and the Investigative Reporters & Editors Medal.

Type Investigations is a project of Type Media Center, a nonprofit that is also home to a bestselling book publishing imprint, Bold Type Books; the widely syndicated website TomDispatch; and a Journalism Fellowship program that supports dozens of reporters every year.

The Managing Editor will have both editorial and project management duties, including:

·      A part-time editorial load, commissioning, editing, and overseeing stories;
·      Communications, including guiding editorial messaging for our outside PR firm, project emails, and on social media;
·      Administration, including managing editorial meetings; project budget; and relationships with contractors;
·      Development support, including liaising with Type Media Center’s development team and providing editorial input into proposal writing and grant reporting;
·      Supervision of junior staff, including managing project assignments, work flow, and deadlines.

The ideal candidate will have strong reporting, writing, editing, and organizational skills; supervisory experience; sound editorial judgment; and sophistication about the journalism field. Experience editing and vetting complex feature-length work required; experience reporting or editing investigative journalism preferred.
