Working at MIT offers opportunities, an environment, a culture and benefits that just aren’t found together anywhere else. If you’re curious, motivated, want to be part of a unique community, and help shape the future then take a look at this opportunity.

ENGAGEMENT EDITOR, MIT Technology Review (MITTR)-Engagement Team, to help make MITTR journalism a greater force for positive change in the world.  MITTR maintains robust presences on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and other social platforms and fosters better conversations around technology, including how it’s built, regulated, and used.  Will help deepen the bond with MITTR audiences by helping the editorial team’s journalism have the biggest impact possible online, whether that’s reaching a big audience across the internet, reaching a smaller audience that’s important for a story, or involving audiences/communities in the making of a story. It will involve working with the design team to create beautiful images and video that delight followers; involvement in engagement projects you plan from start to finish--on both existing and emerging platforms--that reach people and encourage them to interact and participate in these conversations about technology, not simply to read about them; monitoring performance metrics that go beyond just pageviews and keeping an eye on the indicators of deeper and more meaningful engagement; and both finding new audiences and ensuring that stories are resonating with current readers.
