Fast Company seeks an assistant editor for its Impact section
Fast Company is looking for an assistant editor to work on its Impact section, covering the intersection of business and social good, focusing on social entrepreneurship, climate solutions, alternative economic models, corporate social responsibility and the future of food, transportation, and more.
The monthly business magazine is looking for someone with interest and ideas about the intersection of business and changemaking—how the business world can (and can’t) influence the path of progress. Your job will be to help tell the stories of people working on cutting-edge solutions and exposing when those solutions aren’t what they promised.
You’ll be reporting and writing stories daily, helping with some editing and display copy writing, and helping to manage Fast Company’s annual World Changing Ideas Awards program. You should have daily reporting experience at a newspaper or an online publication, preferably covering the technology industry, and you should be a critical thinker who is as comfortable writing short news posts as you are crafting a 2,000-word feature. Experience writing about (or prior interest and expertise in) some of the topic areas the Impact section covers is a plus.
This is a full-time staff position with competitive pay and benefits, based in Fast Company’s New York office in Lower Manhattan. (There is potential for remote work for the right candidate).
