Benefits 401K/403B
Job Duration Full Time
Job Location Washington, DC
Job Requirements The senior editor will be a key player in driving dynamic, must-read content for both print and web, an intellectual partner with the editorial management, and will function day-to-day with a good deal of autonomy. The senior editor will assign and edit stories -- from fast-moving arguments and dispatches keyed to major events in the international 24-hour news cycle, to long-form, big-think features for the print magazine. This person will be responsible for working independently with high-value contributors and seeing articles and magazine sections through their full evolution, from concept to publication.

The ideal candidate should have between seven and ten years of experience working in journalism and editing for a print or web publication (a multi-media platform is ideal). Candidates should have a Rolodex of contributors and writers to call upon (not to mention Twitter followers) and feel comfortable navigating and participating in a collegial, smart, fun, and fast-paced newsroom environment. Most important is a breadth of knowledge and a passion for international news -- from politics to culture to literature to ideas. A sense of humor wouldn't hurt either.

Foreign Policy, which is part of the FP Group within The Washington Post Company, offers a suite of benefits, including medical/dental insurance and a 401(k) plan.
