Associate Editor, UK

The Atlantic seeks an Associate Editor on our global team to help anchor our new London bureau and establish the Atlantic as an indispensable news outlet in Europe. You should be a sharp editor, able to strengthen the work of both experienced writers and emerging voices, and you should value an intellectually and demographically diverse mix of perspectives in the coverage you oversee. Under the purview of our international editor, you’d be responsible for editing both smart, fast-paced, news-driven coverage and ambitious, enterprising reporting and analysis. You should have a well-honed news sense, an ability to spot the signal in the noise and detect deeper trends and patterns in the rush of ongoing events.   

In our nearly 160-year history, The Atlantic has been a venue for some of the most storied authors and journalists of the era. In your application, tell us where you’ll take us next as we expand overseas.


  • Significant experience (minimum 2-3 years) in editing pieces for publication, working with a variety of authors
  • Ability to work with and develop a variety of writers of different experience levels
  • Ability to advance a variety of different projects on different timelines with varied scope
  • Ability to edit stories in different cultural contexts, with an eye both for what’s relatable and universal, and for what’s distinct and context-specific

Core Attributes:

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 Intellect - Atlantic Media seeks a discipline and rigor of thought as manifested, often, in exceptional academic performance and, later, success in a professional environment.
Spirit of Generosity - Equally, Atlantic Media seeks what we term a spirit of generosity – a natural disposition towards service and selfless conduct.


Atlantic Media is an EOE of Minorities/Women/Vets/Disability.
