Celebrating over 150 years in print, The Atlantic’s time-tested mission is to cover the conversations of the day with creative insight and fresh perspective and to push the edge of inquiry toward tomorrow’s concerns. Drawing from a rich tradition of publishing extraordinary literary works, The Atlantic provides leading edge analysis of groundbreaking contemporary issues, covering politics and foreign policy, business and the economy, culture and the arts and science and technology.
Sparking intellectual debate, sparking lively discussion and bringing this deep editorial dialogue to life, AtlanticLIVE produces more than 125 events a year across the country and around the world. These include large-scale national and now international events like the Washington Ideas Forum and CityLab, in London this year. We also produce single topic forums on everything from health to education, as well as "on the record" roundtable dinners on some of the most pressing and interesting issues of our time. In 2015, AtlanticLIVE was honored in five categories of the Folio: FAME Awards—the most of any publisher—with wins for Best Conference, Best Custom Event and Media Event Dream Team.
AtlanticLIVE seeks an Associate Director of Operations to lead, manager, and strategically develop all new events business and partnerships. To learn more about The Atlantic and AtlanticLIVE, visit us at www.theatlantic.com/live.
Your responsibilities include:
Ideal Candidate Attributes:
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.
