Atlantic Media

Senior Writer, Technology

The Atlantic - San Francisco, CA - Full Time

The Atlantic is seeking an experienced journalist to join our growing technology team. The ideal candidate will be a relentless, well-sourced reporter, able to break consequential news stories about technology and its influence on politics, industry, and culture. This writer should have a deep understanding of how Facebook and other social platforms are transforming the global flow of information. This writer will be sensitive to the aspects of Silicon Valley culture that make it unique. Between news stories, this writer will also be capable of stepping back to do the analytical big-picture work that distinguishes The Atlantic across all coverage areas. This writer will be experienced in narrative, magazine-style writing.


Atlantic Media Values:

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 Ideas: At the center of Atlantic Media work are the ideas within our writing. We believe that ideas – to the good and not – have consequence. Our highest work is bringing rigor, insight, intellectual honesty, to that ultimate purpose of separating the bad from the good, giving voice, argument, and flight to the latter.
  • Spirit of Generosity: Atlantic Media seeks in its ranks a spirit of generosity – a natural disposition in each colleague toward service and selfless conduct. Atlantic Media writing should be cut from the same cloth – critical on the merits but informed by charity and forbearance in measuring motive and personal character.


Atlantic Media is an EOE of Minorities/Women/Vets/Disability.

Pursuant to the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance, we will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records.
