At Medium, words matter. We are building the best place for reading and writing on the internet—a place where today’s smartest writers, thinkers, experts, and storytellers can share big, interesting ideas; a place where ideas are judged on the value they provide to readers, not the fleeting attention they can attract for advertisers.
Medium is looking for a senior editor to own our technology coverage across daily, weekly, and monthly publishing. This person loves to read and has a sixth sense for what other people want to read. They will commission original features, columns, and essays by known and unknown writers, bringing stories and perspectives that are not being seen elsewhere.
In particular, this person will contribute smart, fair and unexpected ideas on how to cover the technology industry — from its people and products to trends and emerging ideas and debates. This person is both sourced within the technology world and brings a stable of freelance writers who can pitch and execute, as well as connections to industry leaders and influencers who can offer meaningful, high-impact written contributions.
This editor has an eye for quality, is intellectually curious, and displays excellent judgment when it comes to commissioning everything from narrative non-fiction to investigations to deftly composed essays.
We understand the value of diverse backgrounds and respect the healthy expression of diverse opinions. We embrace experimentation and the examination of all kinds of ideas through reasoning and testing. Medium is an equal opportunity employer.
Interested? We'd love to hear from you.
This position can be based in either New York or San Francisco
