At Medium, we are launching a series of subscription-based publications that will exist to serve readers, not advertisers. The right health editor for our health publication is forward-thinking, scientifically rigorous, creative, & enterprising.
Medium is looking for an ambitious, well-sourced editor to work on our health & wellness publication, with a focus on daily, weekly, & monthly publishing. We want someone who has a keen eye for emerging trends & ideas in health & its related fields, & who can ask the right questions to develop consistent & science-backed coverage across topic areas, from nutrition & fitness to neuroscience & psychedelics.
You will commission stories & edit columns & essays by known & unknown writers & experts, bringing 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 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.
The right person for this role has several years of experience covering health as an editor, & a stable of talent (both freelance & for staff roles) they're ready to tap.
