Managing Editor-Helena/Butte, MT

Big state, big opportunity: We're looking for a top editor to lead, inspire and grow local journalism in two newsrooms, the Helena Independent Record, the voice of Montana's capital city, and the Montana Standard in Butte, a former mining boom town that boasts some of the state's richest history.

If you want to plan and strategize content, edit, do a bit of reporting, and engage readers across multiple digital platforms and a robust three-day-a-week print edition, let's talk. The Helena/Butte editor will also have a seat on Lee Enterprises' statewide editorial board, along with editors in Missoula and Billings and a group of community representatives from across the Big Sky State.

We are a digital-first news organization that prioritizes original and enterprising local reporting, as well as breaking news and hyper-local stories that reflect our communities. We are invested in doing the journalism that doesn't get done in Montana if we don't do it.

The local newsroom in Helena works alongside Lee Montana's Capitol Bureau, which includes an editor of its own and multiple reporters. The Butte newsroom, meanwhile, has decades of experience and is deeply committed to serving the city.

The editor can choose to live in Helena or Butte; the cities are both about 35,000 in population. In addition to the state's spectacular Capitol, Helena is home to Carroll College, a private Catholic school that ranks as Montana's best according to U.S. News & World Report. Butte has one of the neatest restaurants in the state, Casagranda's Steakhouse, plus an architecturally pleasing downtown and one of the nation's largest National Historic Landmark Districts.
