Careers

Managing Editor

D Magazine is a rare, beautiful beast: a general-interest magazine that is owned and run by a family and that continues to find success with paper and ink. We need someone to help us keep this creature watered and fed.   

Do you have a keen eye for detail? Are you comfortable setting deadlines and gently knocking people’s heads together when they miss them? Do you know what an Oxford comma is? Have you recently had an argument about correct word usage? Do you get a happy feeling when an Excel file has been properly flowed into InDesign and all the columns line up and you’ve entered the fact-check changes and you can look out over the glass towers of downtown from a 21st-floor office and know that you’ve made Dallas an even better place? Then you should come work with us.

We’re looking for someone who can:

  • Write a blurb
  • Maybe write something longer than a blurb
  • Oversee fact checkers and copy editors
  • Tolerate profanity
  • Hit deadlines
  • Generate ideas
  • Stop, collaborate, and listen

Requirements and qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree
  • Experience in publishing a huge plus
  • Proficiency with Adobe InCopy/InDesign, Excel, Word
  • Organization and creativity with high attention to detail

We offer a competitive salary and benefits package. We have a flexible workplace, with a mix of office and WFH; you’ll need to live in North Texas. Please apply by emailing your résumé and cover letter.
