Knight Foundation is seeking a tech-focused, visionary and impact-oriented leader to oversee investments, partnerships and a network of people and projects at the intersection of technology, journalism products and news media. As the director, using your knowledge of the business of journalism, you will be charged with recognizing emerging trends, such as artificial intelligence, blockchains and other technologies that can either advance or undermine journalism. You are responsible for developing and leading ground-breaking initiatives that result in innovative forms of news creation, distribution, engagement and consumption.
The position is based in Miami and you will report to the vice president of journalism.
Things we look for in a successful candidate:
Knight Foundation is a national foundation with strong local roots. We invest in journalism, in the arts, and in the success of cities where brothers John S. and James L. Knight once published newspapers. Our goal is to foster informed and engaged communities, which we believe are essential for a healthy democracy.
Our approach is inclusive and non-partisan; we value freedoms of speech and the press, and we often embrace new and innovative technology to achieve our goals. The qualities we look for are openness to new ideas; courage to push for change; and the expertise and tenacity to achieve the desired results.
