Atlantic Media Values – at Least by Aspiration:
Force of Ideas: At the center of Atlantic Media work are the ideas within our writing. We believe that ideas – to the good and not – have consequence. Our highest work is bringing rigor, insight, intellectual honesty, to that ultimate purpose of separating the bad from the good, and giving voice to the latter.
Spirit of Generosity: Atlantic Media seeks in its ranks a spirit of generosity – a natural disposition in each colleague toward service and selfless conduct. Atlantic Media writing should be cut from the same cloth – critical on the merits but informed by charity and forbearance in measuring motive and personal character.
Atlantic Media is an equal opportunity employer of minorities, women, veterans and those with disabilities.
In addition to our Editorial Fellowship, we offer a wide variety of opportunities within our Business Fellowship. We encourage candidates to review all Fellowship opportunities within the company, as our Editorial Fellowship is very competitive.
