At Medium, we are launching a new business publication that exists to serve readers and subscribers, not advertisers.
We are looking for an outstanding, experienced features editor. You will conceive, assign and edit ambitious features, essays, and columns—our “cover stories.” The right features editor for our business publication is forward-thinking, tuned in to the companies and people that matter, creative, and enterprising.
This is a role for an ideas person who is confident working with writers at the top of their game; dedicated to finding the perfect story framing, and driven to take each and every story to the next level. We want someone who has a keen eye for the narratives of business, the insights of economics, the challenges of entrepreneurship, the art of work, and the responsibilities of management. We want someone who can ask the right questions to develop superior features across those topic areas, and help identify trends and storylines in business as they grow from niche stories into broader societal discussion and cultural awareness.
You have exquisite taste and an instinctive feel for what’s in the zeitgeist. You’re an omnivorous consumer of information, and you have distinct ideas about how to stand out in a crowded field, and offer coverage that’s well-reported, thoughtful, and makes readers smarter.
You have exceptional people skills, love working with writers, and can juggle multiple tasks and assignments.
Interested? We would love to hear from you.
