Medium's mission is to help people deepen their understanding of the world & discover ideas that matter. We are building a place where ideas are judged on the value they provide to readers, not the fleeting attention they can attract for advertisers. We are creating the best place for reading & writing on the internet-a place where today's smartest writers, thinkers, experts, & storytellers can share big, interesting ideas.
We are looking for an experienced senior editor to join a new publication focused on black & brown men. We want someone who can see angles in stories that can provide value to our readers. This person should know who & what matters most to our audience & which writer fits best based on topic. We want them to prepare their stable of writers with a roadmap so they can return with best-in-class narratives around race & identity, culture, & life.
This person will have six-plus years commissioning & editing dynamic personal essays, perspective pieces & columns by known & unknown writers & artists. They will gel well with various voices & have a motivating attitude. They will be flush with ideas, have innovative ways to tell stories & detailed reporting that make our readers smarter.
The right person for this role has a roster of freelance writers who can pitch & execute. They have big ideas with the follow-through to bring them to fruition.
