Mashable hunts for new editor for Australian operation

Mashable is on the hunt for a new editor to run its Australian operation just 10 months after appointing Jerico Mandybur to the role.

It is unclear if Mandybur, who joined as editor in July last year, is still with Mashable or if she has departed the tech-based publication.

According to the job ad, the candidate will run the Australia edition of Mashable and oversee all editorial operations.

“The Australia editor will serve as the face of Mashable in Australia and will be expected to have a keen understanding of how news travels through social channels; s/he is an active and avid user of social media and is experienced in using these channels as a tool for growth. The ideal candidate enthusiastically embraces multimedia storytelling across a variety of platforms and has a proven ability to increase readership,” the job ad reads.

“The ideal candidate must have four or more years of experience as an editor with a daily news website, and be a creative self-starter who understands the needs of a growing digital media operation, is collaborative by nature, and works well with other journalists and editors.”

The editor will report to the deputy managing editor in Mashables West Coast bureau.

Mandybur replaced replacing Jen Ryall who relocated to New York to take on the role of real-time editor with the publication. Since then, Ryall has been promoted to vice president of content strategy.

Mashable has been approached for comment.
