SFGATE is a digital-only publication that reaches more than 28 million readers every month and tells the stories of the people, places and ideas that make San Francisco, and the Bay Area at large, the weird and wonderful place that it is. We help readers navigate their day, whether it’s by keeping them updated on big breaking news, guiding them to interesting local experiences or sharing a part of the Bay they haven’t seen before.
The site is home to seven verticals: Culture, offering a unique mix of the entertainment news you actually need, and the underground stories from hidden corners of the Bay Area you want; Local, the premier destination for everything that life in San Francisco encompasses (from wildly expensive real estate to schools to what it’s like to live above a raucous bar); Sports, covering the intersection of sports and pop culture; Travel, covering everything from flight deals and travel news, to hotel hacks and under-the-radar day trips; Commuting, where we keep you up to speed on all things BART, Muni, and Caltrain, on and off the tracks; Food + Drink, where we tell you the backstory of the people behind the bar and in the kitchen; and News.
Under the direction of SFGATE’s Managing Editor, the Travel Editor will be a versatile journalist with a deep understanding of travel in general (bonus points for having an equally deep understanding of California travel destinations, but not necessarily required) and enough intellectual curiosity to want to tell stories that matter to both the people who travel constantly, and the people who only casually do so. The Travel Editor will be able to toggle between fast-paced daily stories and the well-sourced, deep-dive features that remind people there’s more to travel coverage than simply hotel guides and restaurant recommendations. We want someone who will dig deep to cover travel in truly unique ways, whether it be road tripping to a haunted B&B to spend the night, spending an entire day at SFO or solo beach camping in Central California.
