The Atlantic is looking for a sharp, versatile editor to join our growing culture channel. Under the guidance of our culture editor, you’ll be responsible for editing both news-driven commentary and ambitious, longer-term projects. You should have deep interest in the arts and entertainment world (from music to art to books to theater, but especially in filmed entertainment), and experience editing both criticism and reporting. You should be comfortable working with established writers as well as emerging voices, across a broad range of perspectives. You should have impeccable editorial judgment, a knack for identifying the bigger pattern behind the day’s story, and an intellectual curiosity about how culture is informing and interacting with the broader world.
This position can be based in New York City, Washington, D.C., or Los Angeles.
