Medium enables readers to become more informed and escape the filter bubbles that are all around us. We are building a better place for reading and writing on the internet—a place where today’s smartest writers, thinkers, experts, and storytellers can share big, interesting ideas; a place where ideas are judged on the value they provide to readers, not the fleeting attention they can attract for advertisers.
We are seeking a strategic, creative, and systems-minded manager to join our growing content team to oversee all content operations, including contracts, calendars, process, payments, production, copy editing, etc. We’re looking for someone passionate about the written word, with an editorial eye, an understanding of scale, and a master at organization and improving process. And as our strategy grows and evolves this role will determine the needs of the team and resource it accordingly. Interested in joining us?
