At Medium, we are launching a series of subscription-based publications that will exist to serve readers, not advertisers. The right senior editor for our business publication is forward-thinking, tuned in to the companies & people that matter, creative, & enterprising.
Medium is looking for an ambitious, well-sourced editor to work on our business publication, with a focus on daily, weekly, & monthly publishing. 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, & the responsibilities of management. We want someone who can ask the right questions to develop superior coverage across those topic areas, & help identify trends & storylines in business as they grow from niche stories into broader societal discussion & cultural awareness.
You will commission stories & edit columns & essays by known & unknown writers & experts, publishing stories & perspectives that are not seen elsewhere. You also have great ideas about how to stand apart, & offer coverage that's well-reported, thoughtful, & makes our readers smarter.
Medium isn't where readers will find aggregation or commodity news. Instead, we're looking for stories that will reach & resonate with a broad audience, one that's interested in understanding the cycle of value creation & destruction that underpins the way our economy & society function.
The right person for this role has several years of experience covering business as an editor, & a stable of talent (both freelance & for staff roles) they're ready to tap.
