As The Atlantic grows, we are seeking a talented journalist to join our recruitment and professional development efforts.
If you are hired for this job: You will play a critical role in our newly createdTalent Lab. You will be working closely with the Talent Lab director and deputy director as they recruit and develop staff at a time of rapid growth.
