The Atlantic is looking for a Design Fellow to work on the user experience, interactions, and UI for our digital products. The ideal candidate’s experience is rooted in established design principles, and champions best practices and industry standards. You will need a good sense for when to apply established patterns and styles, as well as when to evolve them. You will identify and help correct product inconsistencies, on both the visual and experience sides. Most importantly, you will create beautiful (and usable) interfaces that help our editorial team tell their stories.
Atlantic Media Fellowship
Atlantic Media offers highly ambitious recent college graduates a unique full-time opportunity to participate in our Fellowship Program.

This Fellowship position will begin in July 2018 and will run through June 2019.
What you will do
Who an Atlantic Media Business Fellow Is:
As a world-renowned enterprise that thinks and acts like a digital media startup, we place a premium on finding exceptional talent. We seek individuals with fresh perspectives who constantly push us to be at the forefront of an increasingly digital, mobile and social world.
Preferred software expertise with Sketch, Illustrator, and Photoshop. Experience using wireframe and prototyping tools, such as Invision, Omnigraffle, Framer, or Principle. A solid understanding of HTML and CSS. Coding experience is a plus.
Atlantic Media Values – at Least by Aspiration:
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, and giving voice 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 equal opportunity employer of minorities, women, veterans, and those with disabilities.
