Quartz seeks a part-time editor to work for approximately 20 hours/week on special projects, our ambitious, high-concept, award-winning journalistic features and series like How We’ll Win and The 2050 Project.
Day to day, you’ll be helping to take ideas from conception to execution, by researching and writing articles, commissioning and editing stories from staff writers and outside contributors, and producing coverage. One day may see you brainstorming story ideas, identifying freelancers to work with, and editing and producing stories.
This role will be particularly rewarding for someone who’s deeply curious about the workings of business and the global economy, and can bring their own ideas to work every day; who relishes the opportunity to be creative, and to experiment with new ways of telling stories in formats other than 700-word articles (for example, by using charts and photos, and the occasional well-placed GIF).
You’re well suited for this role if you’re a strong editor who can make raw copy shine, bring an entrepreneurial approach to your work, and are adept at setting priorities, paying attention to detail, thinking strategically, juggling multiple projects and deadlines, and developing good relationships with a broad cross-section of the newsroom. International experience and languages are a plus.
To apply, please send a cover letter, your resume, and five samples of stories or packages you have written and/or edited. Qualified candidates will be asked to take an editing test. Please note that this role is part-time and not benefits-eligible, and runs for a term of six months, with potential to extend.
