At Medium, words matter. We are building the best place for reading & writing on the internet-a place where today's smartest writers, thinkers, authorities, & storytellers can share big, interesting ideas; a place where ideas are judged on the value they provide to readers, not the fleeting attention they can attract for advertisers.
Medium is looking for an ambitious, well-sourced editor to own our business coverage across daily, weekly, & monthly publishing. This person knows how to report on industry, has creative ideas about how to tell stories about the most important businesses shaping our world, & possesses a knack for delivering big stories & tiny scoops that break through.
This person must love to read & have a sixth sense for what other people want to read. You will commission original features, columns, & essays by known & unknown writers & experts, bringing stories & perspectives that are not being seen elsewhere. You are fluent in the world of business & tech, have a record for obtaining access, & are interested in many different aspects of this beat, from micro & macro trends in Silicon Valley, to the rising CEO worth profiling & more.
Medium isn't where readers will find breaking news on stock prices or press releases for startups; instead, we're looking for stories that will reach & resonate with a broad audience, one that's interested in industries & where they're headed-and in reading great stories about fascinating people making big bets.
The right person for this role has several years of experience covering business as an editor, & has a stable of freelance writers who can pitch & execute, as well as connections to industry & company leaders.
This editor has an eye for quality, is intellectually curious, & displays excellent judgment when it comes to commissioning everything from investigations to profiles to deftly composed essays.
