Triple Canopy, a nonprofit arts magazine based in Manhattan, seeks a Senior Editor to commission and develop multimedia projects, as well as public programs. We encourage you to apply even if you do not primarily identify as an editor; while a sophisticated editorial perspective and sharp writing skills are crucial, we are looking for someone with experience and expertise in formats that extend beyond text, given the range of our work. We are excited to collaborate with candidates on tailoring the role to their interests and strengths.
Triple Canopy works with artists and writers to address the critical issues that define contemporary life, emphasizing the role of technology and material conditions in culture. The magazine collaborates with contributors on artworks, essays, fictions, conversations, performances, and books (among other media) from conception to realization, navigating the digital and physical realms where ideas and audiences take shape.
We’re looking for someone who finds pleasure and sustenance in art and literature, possesses formidable enthusiasms and diverse interests, and considers cultural production to be essential to political transformation. The ideal candidate also views public events as important venues for formulating and testing ideas with others. We hope to find someone with significant experience and strong opinions about the work that Triple Canopy is and should be producing. The magazine strives to bring together disparate voices, styles, and experiences, with an emphasis on those that have too often been marginalized, and we hope that the senior editor will be excited to join us in this work.
We’re looking for someone meticulous, communicative, highly organized, collaborative, and adept at shaping working relationships with empathy and care. The ideal candidate is committed to cultural work that, in purview, language, and audience, extends beyond niches defined by profession or ideology. The senior editor will play a critical role in defining the overall work of the magazine by contributing to conversations about the development of issues and initiatives, and by collaborating with other staff on aspects of production, design, communication, and budgeting.
This position is based at Triple Canopy’s office in Manhattan.
