Medium is rapidly growing its editorial team. We are launching a new publication geared toward women of color that will provide thought-provoking, nuanced content about this community's lived experiences. Content will range from reported pieces & personal essays to opinion pieces & Q&A.
We are looking for a critical, high-level addition to the editorial staff, a deputy editor who will focus on daily, weekly & monthly story planning & commissioning, & on the development of the editorial calendar. The deputy editor will assign first-run features, essays & reported articles & work closely with management on strategy & execution. She or he should have excellent taste, a record of bringing in provocative articles by exemplary writers, & the initiative to seek out undiscovered & emerging voices. This person will also be a master at juggling various commissioned assignments at the same time.
Finally, this will be someone who has an eye for quality, is intellectually curious, & displays excellent judgment when it comes to commissioning broad-interest & niche content that people want to read.
