The Atlantic is seeking a creative and entrepreneurial senior editor to edit stories that will change how readers see the world. The editor will be expected to generate story ideas, guide writers through the reporting and writing process, and ensure that the resulting stories have depth, integrity, and style. This person will need impeccable editorial judgment and devotion to the craft of writing. We will consider candidates based remotely, outside of our preferred New York City or Washington, DC office locations.
