Local Director, The New Tropic

Miami, FL The New Tropic Full-Time Submission Deadline: 10/24/2018
Local Department

We’re seeking a full-time Director to lead The New Tropic, a community-driven digital media startup that’s about helping Miamians live like they live here.

Our ideal candidate is a creative, community-driven journalist in Miami who is comfortable leading and producing digital storytelling work with a small team in a fast-paced environment. You’ve ideally managed teams or projects before, produced daily media products, and have a strong record of community engagement and leadership in Miami. The New Tropic is the first local brand of WhereBy.Us, serving hundreds of thousands of Miamians, and the local director is responsible for informing, engaging and growing that community through a daily email newsletter, digital storytelling, community partnerships, and local experiences.

WhereBy.Us is a media startup that’s helping curious locals make the most of their cities. Our purpose is to help people live like they live here — and build a model for doing so that can serve growing cities around the world. We’re a team that cares about the future of cities like Miami and the people who live in them. We want to help our communities to be stronger, better connected, and more awesome. We do that through a mix of useful, substantive, and delightful storytelling — things like local voter guides, explainers on important issues, contributions from local leaders, answers to our community’s questions, quizzes to help you explore Miami, videos about beloved sushi spots and your favorite neighborhood characters, help finding your new favorite running route, and the occasional meme. We also make interesting local experiences to help bring people together and explore our city and we’re working to build a new community-supported model for local news.
