Medium is growing its editorial team. We are looking for a critical, high-level addition to the editorial staff of our new publication focused on politics, power, & culture-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 features, essays & reported stories & work closely with the Editor in Chief on strategy & execution. She or he should have excellent taste, a record of bringing in phenomenal stories by excellent writers, & real passion for seeking 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 & highly creative, & displays excellent judgment when it comes to commissioning broad-interest & niche stories that people want to read.
