Medium is expanding its editorial team. We are looking for an excellent, experienced features editor for Elemental, our publication focused on science-backed health & wellness.
You will conceive, assign, & edit ambitious features, essays, & columns-our cover stories. You will also write features when appropriate, using your strong writing & reporting skills to help define our publication's identity.
This is a role for an ideas person who is a highly creative thinker & storyteller, endlessly curious about health & its related fields, & who is versatile enough to produce standout coverage across diverse topic areas, from nutrition & fitness to neuroscience & psychedelics. You have exquisite taste & an instinctive feel for what's in the zeitgeist. You are confident working with writers at the top of their game, & are ready to get your hands dirty (and have fun!) writing stories yourself. You also know the competitive landscape of health & wellness publications, have great ideas about how to stand apart, & offer coverage that's well-reported, thoughtful, & makes readers smarter.
Medium isn't where readers will find aggregation or study of the day write-ups. Instead, we're looking for stories that will reach & resonate with a broad audience, one that's interested in enjoying their healthiest life, & wants reliable, nuanced coverage on how to do it.
