Quartz seeks an editor to help us identify and develop the smartest, most creative journalistic talent around the world.
As leader of Quartz’s global talent lab, you will oversee an incubator dedicated to seeking out and developing creators of quality journalism that finds a broad audience online.
You will connect with smart, creative, ambitious writers, videographers and data journalists, and identify opportunities to bring their voices to Quartz. In tandem, the Talent Lab editor works with Quartz staff on developing their skills and becoming the finest at their craft. You lead through your energy and curiosity, and challenge journalists to produce the greatest work they could aspire to.
We are looking for someone with an obsessive interest in news and current affairs and compulsion to find the most original and smart approaches for tackling it. You will be a voracious consumer of media and have an unyielding appetite for storytelling in all its forms. You will be an avid networker, and possess a sharp eye for talent. You will be excited about the experimental opportunities of digital journalism and possess a love of language, a facility with data, and a keen visual sense.
The successful candidate will have experience managing journalists. The editor will also have an intense interest in the world, will likely have spent time living outside the US and speak two or more languages fluently.
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.
Atlantic Media is an EOE of Minorities/Women/Vets/Disability.
