Medium's mission is to help people deepen their understanding of the world & discover ideas that matter. We are building a place where ideas are judged on the value they provide to readers, not the fleeting attention they can attract for advertisers. We are creating the best place for reading & writing on the internet-a place where today's smartest writers, thinkers, experts, & storytellers can share big, interesting ideas.
We are launching a new publication for black & brown men & are looking for an outstanding senior staff writer who has an overflow of ideas, deep knowledge, & the contacts needed to write impactful articles for this audience. You should be familiar with the race conversation, capable of contextualizing cultural trends in the zeitgeist, & able cover the various facets of life for men of color. You must be ready to get your hands dirty (and have fun!) creating something new.
The publication isn't chasing the usual hot take. You'll put together well-researched stories with unique POVs that teach our audience something they didn't know every day. You'll know who & what is driving conversation & be excited to deliver that news to the reader. The right person for this role will have broad interests & love to read. They will have an ear to social news & be in tune with influential people on various platforms.
Our ideal candidate has at least four years experience. They should feel comfortable writing across a range of formats, including short-form, features & columns while bringing excellent pitches to the table every day.
