Quartz seeks an app writer
Quartz is looking for an experienced journalist to work on the ground-breaking, award-winning Quartz for iPhone app and the Quartz for Android app as a writer and editor. The successful candidate will relish the challenge of covering major global news stories in real time, and writing about them with voice and verve.
This journalist will have stellar news judgement, and superb writing skills. When big, multi-day stories occur—Brexit, or the Summer Olympics, or the Paris attacks—you will decide what story developments should be pushed out to our app readers. The reporter will report, write, and edit original stories, as well as aggregate relevant stories from Quartz and other news outlets.
A key part of this role will be assuming responsibility for our app coverage during US evenings. There will also be scope to report and write stories and analysis for other Quartz platforms. You will be part of a team that’s continually innovating fresh ways to tell stories and connect with readers in the places they most enjoy consuming journalism.
The successful candidate will have:
Several years experience covering news, including major geopolitical and business stories
A proven ability to write with speed, accuracy, and judgment in a complex breaking news situation
A sophisticated sense of the stories Quartz’s business readers are interested in, and where to find them
Facility with multitasking
The ability to inject humor into their work, when appropriate
Across Atlantic Media, generally, the firm looks for two “pillar gifts” in its candidates. In all of us, these are more aspirational than actual, but they are central in our intentions.
1. Force of Intellect – Atlantic Media seeks a discipline and rigor of thought as manifested, often, in exceptional academic performance and, later, success in a professional environment.
2. Spirit of Generosity – Equally, Atlantic Media seeks what we term a spirit of generosity – a natural disposition towards service and selfless conduct.
