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.
At Medium, we have launched a new digital magazine for women of color that exists to serve readers & subscribers, not advertisers.
We are looking for an outstanding, experienced features editor. You will conceive, assign & edit ambitious features, essays, & columns-our cover stories. The right features editor for our publication is forward-thinking, tuned in to the conversations & people that matter, creative, & 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, & driven to take each & every story to the next level. We want someone who has a keen eye for narratives, & has insight into the lived experiences of women of color. We want someone who can ask the right questions to develop superior features across myriad topic areas, & help identify trends & storylines as they grow from niche stories into broader societal discussion & cultural awareness.
You have exquisite taste & an instinctive feel for what's in the zeitgeist. You're an omnivorous consumer of information, & you have distinct ideas about how to stand out in a crowded field, & offer coverage that's well-reported, thoughtful, & makes readers smarter.
You have exceptional people skills, love working with writers, & can juggle multiple tasks & assignments.
