IPVM is seeking a managing editor to oversee and lead our investigative business journalism.
IPVM is a profitable, independent company with a strong and growing base of over 15,000 paying members. We started with video surveillance industry news and research but are expanding to cover security technology more generally, including its business, political, and ethical impacts.
IPVM has complete editorial independence. We refuse advertisements and sponsorships and have no outside owners, i.e. no VCs, private equity, or wealthy benefactors. We have ~25 employees including a 12,000-square foot test facility where our researchers test technology, so our reporting benefits from our own internal results.
IPVM’s founder has been its de facto editor in chief but with the company’s growth, we need an experienced editor to help lead our reporting. The main focus is investigating and exposing industry issues that large companies do not want to be revealed — everything from human rights violations to workplace sexual harassment and public health dangers. The right candidate will be excited to have the opportunity to go after impactful stories, fight for what is ethical, and expose what is unethical.
In the past 6 months, IPVM has collaborated on reporting with leading publications including The Washington Post, The New York Times, the BBC, and the LA Times. Our reporting has also been cited more than 100 times in the last year by various publications around the world.
We request candidates submit a resume along with examples/clips of successful work. This position is open to people in any location.
