Staff Writer, Culture

The Atlantic is looking for a versatile journalist to join our growing culture team. The ideal candidate will be a well-sourced reporter with a critic’s eye, able to chase down stories and write quickly and eloquently about significant currents in the entertainment landscape. This person will have a deep understanding of the business of pop culture and an intellectual curiosity about how Hollywood is informing and interacting with the broader world. This writer will be able to toggle between fast-paced daily stories and the analytical big-picture work that distinguishes The Atlantic across all coverage areas.

This position is based in Los Angeles.

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.
