CityLab, The Atlantic’s sister site devoted to the most pressing issues and innovative ideas shaping cities and neighborhoods, is looking for an exceptional editor. This editor will have a dual role: He or she will be part of our news editing team, but will also be responsible for building out our new "POV" initiative. The growing “POV” section features guest opinion content from established urban thinkers as well as new, emerging regional voices and thought leaders. The editor will be part of a collaborative and scrappy team working to expand the reach and breadth of CityLab’s work.
Qualifications of the Ideal Candidate:
You'll Get Noticed If You Have:
CityLab has offices in Washington, D.C. and New York, but candidates in other locations will be considered. Please submit a résumé, cover letter, and three clips to your digital editing work. You may also include additional clips of your written work.
Across Atlantic Media, generally, the firm looks for two “pillar gifts” in its candidates. In all of us, these are more aspirational than actual, but they are central in our intentions.
Force of Intellect - Atlantic Media seeks a discipline and rigor of thought as manifested, often, in exceptional academic performance and, later, success in a professional environment.
Spirit of Generosity - Equally, Atlantic Media seeks what we term a spirit of generosity – a natural disposition towards service and selfless conduct.
Atlantic Media is an EOE of Minorities/Women/Vets/Disability.
