  • Overview

    The Virginian-Pilot is looking for a digital producer to help manage its homepage and develop its Instagram accounts. The ideal candidate will be collaborative, flexible, detail-oriented and digitally savvy. We’re looking for someone who will play a key day-to-day role in our newsroom. 


    Here are a few reasons you should join our newsroom:

    • We’re the largest news operation in Virginia, with coverage from Richmond to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. That’s a big audience — looking for both statewide and hyperlocal coverage.


    • We aim for ambitious journalism that makes an impact on Virginians’ lives. Our newsroom features many award winners, including multiple Pulitzer finalists.


    • Our coverage area includes the world’s largest Navy base, many cities and miles of beaches. Annual topics include the Something in the Water music festival in Virginia Beach and the Chincoteague pony swim.


    • We’re committed to helping our journalists develop and build new audience development skills through training.


    Here’s what we ask for in return:

    • Work with reporters and editors to write compelling, reader-friendly and SEO-friendly headlines and optimize story presentation.


    • Develop The Pilot’s Instagram accounts, including posting and strategy.


    • Assist in distributing content on social platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Reddit, Nextdoor, and LinkedIn.


    • Helping to train newsroom staff on new tools or digital initiatives.


    This position includes some weekend work.


    Previous experience in a newsroom (newspaper, TV or radio) or digital news enterprise is preferred.


    Interested candidates should send a résumé and cover letter to Sean Kennedy (sean.kennedy@pilotonline.com) and Erica Smith (e.smith@pilotonline.com)
