The job:

The Senior Editor at Travel + Leisure is responsible for developing travel-related content in multiple formats across a variety of platforms, while also contributing travel ideas and stories to T+L’s sister brand, Departures. The ideal candidate will have a nose for a good story and a canny sense of the best way to package and deliver that story for maximum impact.


You will:

  • Edit reported front-of-book stories, essays, packages, and features.
  • Work closely with the photo and art departments to achieve the optimal visual presentation of your stories.
  • Develop digital extensions, repackaging, and reimagining of print content, including custom slideshows, videos, and custom aggregation pages.
  • Conceive and develop ambitious digital-only franchises, including some based around video or VR.
  • Follow travel industry news and trends, maintaining regular contact with people in the industry and attending events as a representative of T+L.
  • Play a role in growing the T+L brand in new arenas (events, e-commerce, podcasting, etc.)
  • Write for print and online, while embracing the notion that this is first and foremost an editing job.


You have:


  • Six or more years experience in a magazine and/or newspaper publishing environment, ideally with a mix of experience in print and digital.
  • Demonstrated proficiency with the fundamentals of print magazine architecture, including deep familiarity with service journalism and an understanding of how to assemble front-of-book sections and packages.
  • A track record of editing reported stories and a go-to roster of established, high-quality writers.
  • Considerable digital fluency. Experience working with content management systems and digital productivity tools and awareness of online best practices is a must. Familiarity with analytics tools is a plus.
  • Deep familiarity with lifestyle journalism, including travel. You don’t have to be a career travel specialist, but you should arrive with experience in the category and industry relationships in place.
  • A collaborative working style and top-notch communication skills.
  • Experience producing video or developing immersive online content isn’t required, but it is a plus.
  • On-camera experience isn’t required, but it is a plus.
