Quartz seeks a deputy editor to help run its global coverage of the the technology sector, with a focus on editing daily stories, assisting the technology editor in San Francisco, and contributing their own original takes.
You would be part of the growing Quartz team worldwide, and help shape our efforts to take bracingly creative approaches to covering business news. Developing fresh ways to look at technology and tech trends and translate them into interesting, provocative articles, with a solid grounding in data, is a central challenge of this job.
We'd look to you to identify people who deserve more attention, see around corners to where technology and the tech business are heading, and surface detailed examples that help readers understand what the technology industry is obsessing about. We'd want you to be both excited about the fundamental potential of technology and startups and thoughtful, critical, and creative in your coverage of them.
We are looking for someone with professional editing and reporting experience, a facility with data, an entrepreneurial approach to their work, and the ability to convey curiosity and humor in their writing. You should feel comfortable with formats other than 700-word articles (such as shorter pieces, photos, and charts) when they’re better for efficiently and effectively getting a story across. International experience and languages are a plus.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, and five links to relevant work. The links matter most.
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.
1. 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.
2. Spirit of Generosity - Equally, Atlantic Media seeks what we term a spirit of generosity – a natural disposition towards service and selfless conduct.
