FORTUNE Has a New Opening for Senior Tech Editor

Rachel Schallom Lobdell, Digital Editor at FORTUNE Magazine posted that she was hiring today.

'I'm hiring a senior editor to build and oversee a team of Fortune reporters on all things tech. We’re looking for someone who can think critically about the ways technology is shaping companies, consumers, and policy—and can execute those stories.'


Fortune is hiring a thoughtful and energetic senior tech editor to grow our technology team and expand the footprint of our coverage of Silicon Valley, artificial intelligence, fintech, data privacy and more. We’re looking for an editor who can think critically about the ways technology is shaping companies, consumers, and policy and successfully lead a team to execute the biggest stories in the most interesting ways. This is a key role in a newsroom that values kindness, experimentation, and telling good stories.

You will:

  • Strategize and execute Fortune’s coverage of all things tech with an eye for big-picture trends
  • Determine the focus areas that Fortune will own and deploy staff and freelance resources to create conversation-starting journalism
  • Build and oversee a team of reporters, providing personalized coaching for continued success
  • Advance the story everyone is talking about with fresh insight
  • Assign and edit breaking news, exclusive scoops, and longform reporting
  • Bring a tech point of view to newsroom-wide brainstorms and conversations
  • Contribute to our Brainstorm Tech conference and live events
  • Collaborate with editors and writers across the newsroom on breaking news and special packages
  • Ensure our coverage includes a diversity of ideas, perspectives, and voices
  • Uphold Fortune’s standards of journalistic rigor, accuracy, and fairness

The right candidate:

  • Has proven management and editing experience in a digital environment
  • Has a robust understanding of the major technology trends driving transformation across industries
  • Brings a deep network of sources, writers, and speakers
  • Exercises careful, considered news judgment
  • Aches to tell important stories that hold those in power accountable
  • Is infinitely curious and always has a story idea ready to go
  • Is eager to try out new formats, from hopping on camera for a video to contributing to one of Fortune’s newsletters
  • Edits clean, accurate, and insightful copy on deadline
  • Is flexible and adaptable
  • Effectively prioritizes tasks in a fast-paced environment and juggles creative personalities
  • Communicates professionally and effectively in a remote environment
  • We know there's not a single perfect candidate for the job, so if any of these sound like you, we'd like to hear from you.

A few of Fortune’s perks and benefits:

  • Flexible working hours and schedule: We expect our editorial staff to show up consistently and meet deadlines, but there’s no need to take PTO for a midday doctor’s appointment or to leave an hour early for a flight. Working in news can mean nontraditional hours, and we work with each staffer to make sure there’s appropriate comp time for special projects.
  • 20 vacation days and 2 personal days on top of 11 company holidays and an honor-based sick leave policy
  • Health, dental, and vision coverage (90% paid for individuals and families), along with flexible spending accounts where Fortune contributes to your HSA
  • 401(k) plan
  • Generous parental leave
  • Dependent care, commuter, and cell phone benefits
  • Tuition reimbursement program
  • A commitment to an open, inclusive and diverse work culture
