The Atlantic is a digital-first media company with over 150 years of history and millions of online visitors. Founded in 1857 and today one of the fastest-growing media platforms in the industry, The Atlantic has throughout its history championed the power of big ideas and continues to shape global debate through our two websites: TheAtlantic.com and CityLab.com. We work in a fast-paced, team-oriented environment out of our office in the historic Watergate complex in Washington DC.
What is the Revenue Team?
We’re a new part of the Product Team focused on the hardest problem on the Internet: how do we help our sales and marketing teams fund journalism in ways that provide a world-class reader experience?
We’re tackling all aspects of the advertising ecosystem, subscriptions, and the ways we promote our own products with new platforms and AB testing.
You can read about our first initiative, high-end ad formats that look great while meeting strict performance and user experience standards, on our blog: The Case for Bespoke Advertising.

Atlantic Media Values:
Across Atlantic Media, generally, the firm looks for two “pillar gifts” in you, and everyone else. In all of us, these are more aspirational than actual, but they are central in our intentions –
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.
