Posting Job Description
We are looking for a few unicorns.
Are you a journalist who also has experience working with platforms or other tech companies, like Apple, Facebook, Google or Twitter?
Or maybe you're a journalist who's obsessed with how users experience the news and you love the challenges of making news content more accessible, more arresting, more essential and more irresistible to everybody.
Then you should join the CNN Digital Programming Team. - We take the extraordinary content of CNN - from text to videos to interactives - and curate and organize them for CNN's own digital platforms - from ~~~ on phones and desktop to the CNN app - and other platforms (Apple News, Google AMP and AMP stories, Amazon Echo and beyond.)
What part will you play?
Programming Producers for CNN Digital are creative thinkers who execute the packaging and distribution of a wide array of content across CNN's mobile and desktop platforms.
Programming producers are all about finding that perfect headline or image for a story and the most engaging curation of homepages. They are also addicted to audience analytics and A/B testing.
They have a deep knowledge of digital content in many forms - articles, videos, galleries, social content, interactives, podcasts, etc - across the CNN portfolio and create compelling digital packages for distribution on a wide range of platforms.
Digital programming producers are seen internally as the go-to people for how to get compelling essential journalism seen and shared.
To that end, all producers think like readers/swipers/scrollers/watchers/listeners and help connect disparate digital dots to the benefit of global audiences minute-by-minute.
Some producers will be assigned to specific teams, most notably the mobile and off-platform teams, to create, craft and program content for our mobile sites, apps, watches, messaging services and voice-command technologies.
Some will work with our partners, ranging from Apple to Google and beyond, and get our content on the biggest platforms in the world.
Digital producers are thoughtful and creative planners, and ace collaborators, working with video and photo teams, social teams, the global digital news desk, vertical teams and more. Producers are excellent givers of feedback, and they participate in post mortems and other conversations about sharpening our programming around key projects. What will you be doing?
Curating news for the largest mobile audience of any American news organization! Keeping the mobile homepage and the core mobile app up to the minute, dynamic and engaging.
Proactively and creatively suggesting projects, formats and content.
Conceiving and planning how we program short and medium term projects.
