Writer

Quartz is looking for an experienced journalist to join our Push team, writing for the award-winning Quartz app for iPhone and Android, the Quartz Daily Brief email newsletter, and other innovative products. The successful candidate will relish the challenge of covering major global news stories in real time, and writing about them with voice and verve for Quartz’s most loyal users.

This journalist will have stellar news judgement, superb and speedy writing skills, and the flexibility to write in various modes and voices. When big, multi-day stories occur—Brexit, Cambridge Analytica, a trade war—you will help decide how to cover them in the app and Daily Brief, and craft the perfect push notification to stand out from the pack.

While a key part of this role will be aggregating relevant stories from Quartz and other news outlets, there will also be scope to report and write longer stories and features. You will be part of a team that’s continually innovating fresh ways to tell stories, and connecting with readers in the places they spend the most time.

The successful candidate will have:

  • Several years experience covering breaking news, including major geopolitical and business stories
  • A proven ability to write with speed, accuracy, and sound judgment in complex breaking news situations
  • A sophisticated sense of the stories Quartz’s business-centric readers are interested in, and where to find them
  • Facility with multitasking
  • The ability to inject humor into their work, when appropriate 

 

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.

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