Associate Editor, Audience Engagement Team

We’re looking for a creative, precise, and collaborative editor to join the audience engagement team at The Atlantic.

Founded in 1857, the magazine is undergoing a major expansion of its newsroom, digital platforms, and journalistic ambitions. The audience team sits at a key intersection between The Atlantic and its audiences. This team helps dedicated readers find the most valuable and nourishing work for them, leads casual visitors to greater depth, and introduces newcomers to our journalists and sensibility.

The person we hire will join a team charged with the selection and presentation of Atlantic stories on the mobile and desktop home screens and other surfaces. You may also work with colleagues in product, design, and engineering to improve and extend the usability and power of those platforms.

You should be a voracious consumer of journalistic work. You should be curious about the best ways to cultivate relationships with existing and new audiences for The Atlantic. And you should bring the judgment and ingenuity to tell important stories in ways that make them indispensable.

As an associate editor, you will:

  • Post to and manage some of The Atlantic’s social media feeds and partnerships. This includes applying both an entrepreneurial sensibility and impeccable journalistic standards to how our work is presented, packaged, and distributed in the social space;
  • Work closely with other editors to polish and optimize pieces for social and other types of distribution;
  • Identify new platforms, partnerships, and practices that can drive traffic and grow our audience;
  • Analyze engagement with Atlantic journalism across platforms to inform future strategy and provide insights your newsroom colleagues can act on.

This role is based in Washington, D.C. Applicants elsewhere may be considered for remote work. Shifts will include nights and weekends.
