Position description

The Atlantic is seeking an experienced journalist to help oversee digital editorial operations, including daily and long-term coverage planning, and coordination across 10 sections of the website. The ideal candidate will be an energetic and experienced news editor/reporter with a deep understanding of the social web and a love of The Atlantic. This person must be a creative thinker with exceptionally sound journalistic judgment, relentless attention to detail, and a strong sense of urgency and enthusiasm about the real-time news environment.


  • Exceptional news judgment
  • Meticulous organization 
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Strong interpersonal skills  

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.
