    HOOP, a bimonthly national basketball magazine, is seeking a savvy, creative and knowledgeable Associate Editor. The candidate, besides being all-knowing in everything NBA and one who keeps up with basketball and pop culture, needs to be highly organized, able to juggle tasks, not be afraid of working in a fast-paced environment, the ability to work with a small team and possess a knack for looking at the game beyond 94 x 50 feet.

    Updating and contributing to HOOPs website and social media initiatives
    Liaising with PR companies and freelancers
    Researching and tracking photos

    The position will offer a motivated individual an opportunity to turn their creative ideas into initiatives for the magazine. It is imperative that the candidate demonstrate an ability to cooperatively work within a small team and be willing to play the role of Andrei Kirilenko. The position will require schedule flexibility as it entails attending games/media events at nights and/or weekends.

    The ideal candidate should have at least 1 year of magazine experience, along with ability to use inDesign (and/or other page layout program), Word, Excel, light HTML and be Internet-savvy. New media experience is a plus.

    The position offers an entry-level salary and an excellent health/dental insurance package.
