The Atlantic is seeking an experienced journalist to join our growing technology team. The ideal candidate will be a relentless reporter, well-sourced at the newsmaking companies in today’s tech industries, and sensitive to the ebbs and flows of Silicon Valley culture. This person will be eager to break stories in a real-time news environment, but will also step back and do the analytical big-picture work that distinguishes The Atlantic across all coverage areas. This position will be based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
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.
