We’re hiring an engagement producer

The Texas Tribune’s mission makes engaging Texans on politics and policy issues just as important as keeping them informed. That’s why we’re seeking an Engagement Producer to help us build relationships with readers across platforms, particularly via newsletters. This producer will work full-time out of our downtown Austin newsroom, reporting to the Director of Loyalty Programs.

We’re looking for someone who can be an expert listener, in the newsroom and with our readers. You will be passionate about gathering feedback — both quantitative and qualitative — and using it to improve the relevance and accessibility of our news products. You are a newsletter and audience engagement nerd, who knows the difference between an effective social headline and an email subject line. You are an avid consumer of state and national politics/policy news and will use your talents to make our journalism more accessible to a wider audience. You get satisfaction from learning who our readers are by name, and connecting them with our journalists and each other. You have a track record for driving engagement, whether it’s getting people to show up for an event, to subscribe to a newsletter or to weigh in on a conversation. And you know how to measure the effectiveness of your efforts.

Your responsibilities may include:

We know there are great people who won’t check all of these boxes, and we also know you might bring important skills that we haven’t thought of. If that’s you, don’t hesitate to apply and tell us about yourself.
