Tax Analysts, a nonprofit multimedia tax publisher, seeks an experienced senior editor:
Responsibilities include planning, editing, and taking overall responsibility for Tax Notes magazine, the company's flagship publication. Evaluates material submitted for publication. Keeps abreast of current events in tax law through pertinent literature, media, and contacts with government officials and others. Writes editorials, and conducts weekly editorial meetings. Provides guidance and editorial direction to the staff and works closely with sales and marketing on advertising efforts. Must be willing to work late hours and excel under daily deadlines.
We strive to stir up great tax policy debate -- and fuel it with the best news and commentary around. Because our publication has no advertising, no holds are barred in the aggressive pursuit of all angles of a given story -- an advantage that few other periodicals can offer.
We offer a competitive compensation package with a wide range of generous benefits including 401(k) with employer match, medical and dental insurance and much more.
Tax Analysts resides in a spacious new office building midway between the East and West Falls Church metro stops. Our employees enjoy an excellent benefit package as well as a casual dress code, ample free underground parking, exercise room, and contemporary training and conference facilities.
Requirements: J.D. required; LL.M in taxation and experience in tax publishing strongly preferred. Six years experience in editing and writing for print and electronic products. Must have demonstrated ability to manage a staff and must display sound judgement and problem-solving skills.
Contact: To apply, please send resume and cover letter to Tax Analysts, Human Resources (Code NOTES) by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to (703) 533-4619. No phone calls, please. EOE.
