At Medium, words matter. We are building the best place for reading & writing on the internet-a place where today's smartest writers, thinkers, experts, & 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 a senior editor to drive technology & science coverage in OneZero, our future-focused publication. This person loves to read & has a sixth sense for what other people want to read. They will commission original features, columns, & essays by known & unknown writers, bringing stories & perspectives that are not being seen elsewhere.
In particular, this person will contribute smart, fair & unexpected ideas on how to cover the technology industry - from its people & products to trends & emerging ideas & debates. This person is both sourced within the technology world & brings a stable of freelance writers who can pitch & execute, as well as connections to industry leaders & influencers who can offer meaningful, high-impact written contributions.
This editor has an eye for quality, is intellectually curious, & displays excellent judgment when it comes to commissioning everything from narrative non-fiction to investigations to deftly composed essays.
