Senior White House Reporter

The Atlantic is seeking an experienced journalist to join our growing White House team. The ideal candidate will be a relentless reporter and fluid writer who is well-sourced in Washington and has a demonstrated ability to break news. This person will be eager to make an impact with top-quality work in a real-time news environment, and will also be skilled at the analytical big-picture work that The Atlantic is known for across all coverage areas. The ideal candidate will help further distinguish The Atlantic as a must-read destination during a chaotic political moment, and will routinely steer the national conversation via top-notch reporting and extraordinary writing.

This position is based in Washington, D.C.


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 Company is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

Pursuant to the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance, we will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records.
