- Monthly book stipend
- Team happy hours and activities
- A chance to help create and shape indispensable editorial products and services that serve a global audience

What we need from you:

Please briefly describe why you're a good fit for this position, two ideas for a Sunday story, one project you're particularly proud of, and what your dream job would be. You can include your responses in this application or email them to our head of content, Brad Wolverton ([email protected]), with "senior writer opening" in the subject line. We won't read your application without this information.

We encourage applications from candidates who have succeeded in a startup environment and we welcome candidates from non-traditional backgrounds, with experience outside of journalism. We're also open to candidates with different levels of experience. For us, having a person with the right mindset and temperament is most important.

We are committed to diversity and strongly encourage people from underrepresented communities to apply, including women, people of color, LGBTQ people, and individuals with disabilities.
