Technology Editor

The Atlantic is looking for an experienced editor to oversee its new Silicon Valley bureau. The ideal candidate will be a proven leader, driven by an insatiable curiosity about the world of technology, and a desire to break news. This editor will have a track record of high-impact reporting and/or editing, and a sense of urgency and immediacy about covering the technology sector's largest companies, and their influence on the larger culture. This person will be responsible for leading a team that can nimbly respond to major news in a real-time information ecosystem, without sacrificing the high standards for analysis and quality of writing that distinguish The Atlantic across all coverage areas.


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.
