Quartz seeks an editor to reimagine our Ideas coverage.
Ideas is simply our catchall word for, well, ideas, and is chiefly responsible for bringing outside voices to Quartz. This isn’t your parents’ op ed section though. We look to Ideas to obsess over the world’s most pressing issues that our readers obsess over, to peer around corners to reveal the future shape of the global economy and our place in it. It’s about ideas that spark creativity, fuel innovation and force change. At times these ideas will be provocative or counterintuitive.
Our contributors are entrepreneurs, scientists, academics, artists, and others whose experience and expertise provide surprising insights and prompt conversation and debate. Their contributions are expressed as clear, bold arguments, and can be as simple as a Tweet, or an Instagram story, and extend to a live Q&A or a 1,200-word article.
This editor will oversee our small Ideas team. Our ideal candidate will be plugged into vibrant networks of people, is cool under pressure, can edit fast and accurately, buzzes with ideas, and is intellectually curious and hungry to understand the world better. The Ideas Editor will get a kick out of taking other people’s work and making it shine. She likes experimenting with formats other than the 700-word article and is comfortable with using data to tell a story. A minimum of 2-3 years editing experience is required, in addition to some reporting experience. International experience and foreign languages are a plus.
