Media Organization: Atlas Obscura
Atlas Obscura is a digital media venture devoted to discovering and sharing the world’s most remarkable places. We publish eight to 12 reported stories each day, around the themes of discovery and wonder, and eight to 12 entries for our comprehensive atlas of little-known places from around the globe (there are 11,000 so far). See Atlasobscura.com for more information.
Do you love history, culture, science, maps? Do you want to spend your days working at a digital media company devoted to exploring the world's hidden wonders? Do you want hands-on experience with a small team? Come be an editorial fellow at Atlas Obscura! We are hoping to hire a fellow to begin January 4, 2016, with the potential for a longer-term commitment.
Work duties will be varied, as this is a start-up, and everyone pitches in. You would get experience writing and producing web stories, working on multimedia projects, and learning about social media strategy.
Some key attributes:
Demonstrated writing and reporting ability
Sense of humor
Passion for AO’s mission of finding and reporting on the coolest things on the planet
Salary. NYC-based job. Both 3-and-6 month stints available, with a preference for those who can stay for six. This is a 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. gig, so no current students with class commitments will be considered.
