Video Journalist

Quartz is a digitally native news outlet with headquarters in New York and bureaus worldwide. Launched in 2012, we are a guide to the new global economy for people in business who are excited by change.

We are looking for a self-shooting video journalist / producer who can pitch, report, and shoot stories for our newly-launched weekly show, Quartz News.

The successful candidate needs to have strong journalistic instincts, international experience, and an eye for smart, interesting—often counterintuitive—stories. You’re a self starter who can work independently as well as with other journalists to bring a story to fruition. You can produce, shoot, and edit, and have a strong grasp of how to structure a good narrative. Ideally you will have a deep trove of trusted contacts who can help you execute your vision.

This journalist will join a highly collaborative international team with a mandate to pursue stories best told in video. We are looking for someone with an obsessive interest in international news and current affairs and a compulsion to find the most original, creative approaches to tackling the stories they have strong conviction around.

You should be adept with Premiere and the C300, as well as capturing good sound. Knowledge of languages in addition to English are a plus. This role is based in our London office, working closely with the team in New York.

The role is a full-time, 11-month contract.

To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, and five links to relevant work.

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.
