Vox is a user's guide to the news, helping readers make sense of everything from President Donald Trumps latest tweet to the soaring success of Crazy Rich Asians. Every day, were striving to deliver the best context, reporting, & analysis to the news that matters most to our readers.
Our culture section is an especially exciting place for that mission to come alive. Pop culture is an area that sometimes appears superficial & insignificant at first glance, but when you look closer can serve as a fascinating lens for exploring Americas evolving attitudes on politics, identity, sexuality, & more. At Vox we love watching TV & movies, listening to music, reading books, & following celebrity gossip -- & we take each of those things seriously as a way of understanding ourselves & the world around us.
Were looking for an Associate Culture Editor who will act as both an editor & a writer for our team. Were looking for someone who has strong editorial judgment, can identify & prioritize the most important culture stories, & inspire & guide writers -- leading by example, writing at least 2-3 times a week. This is a broad gig: criticism of TV, movies, music, books all fall under our umbrella, but so does a vast array of news. This role is just as likely to cover the intersection of politics & culture or the intersection of identities & culture (including a lot of #MeToo stories) as we are to do celebrity image analysis, explain internet memes, & write TV reviews.
What youll bring:
- Expertise in explainer or explainer-adjacent journalism
- Interest & enthusiasm about following the news & finding the right Vox angle into any given story
- 2-5 years of editing experience in a fast-paced environment
- Strong writing background
