Comic Book Jobs: Disney Publishing

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials,

Mickey Mouse & Walt DisneyDisney Publishing Worldwide is the publishing arm of The Walt Disney Company. They develop “original, award-winning content...including Disney books, magazines and comic books.”

Based in White Plains, NY, they need a Digital Managing Editor to “oversee the digital content making process from concept through posting of final files.”


Disney’s growing digital publishing empire “includes both, the Disney Book Group pub program (our Disney Press and Disney-Hyperion vertical list) and the content we license (our global publishing program).” This includes e-books/i-books, apps, motion comics, e-motion comics, e-magazines and digi-comics.

You need five years experience at least, and with some kind of digital content or editorial background. A “big picture mentality” will help and since you’ll be working in a “cross-functional organization” you’re going to need to be able to get along well with others in the global sandbox.

Good luck, job seekers!
