Medium is expanding its editorial team. We are looking for a critical, high-level addition to the editorial staff of our publication focused on science-backed health & wellness-an executive editor who will work closely with the editor-in-chief in growing & evolving Elemental as a brand, developing a robust editorial calendar, & building a strong talent pool to contribute to the publication. The executive editor will oversee the Elemental staff in daily, weekly & monthly story planning & commissioning & will spearhead big editorial projects. She or he should have excellent taste & superior storytelling skills, a record of bringing in phenomenal stories by excellent writers, & real passion for seeking out undiscovered & emerging voices.
We want someone who has a keen eye for emerging trends & ideas in health & its related fields, & who can ask the right questions to guide coverage across diverse topic areas, from nutrition & fitness to neuroscience & psychedelics. You have experience leading coverage, have a Rolodex of writers & editors you'd love to work with, & are ready to get your hands dirty (and have fun!) building something new. 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.
