As the leading independent modern media company, Vox Media ignites conversations and influences culture. Across digital, podcasts, TV, streaming, live events, and print, we tell stories that affect our audience's daily lives and entertain as much as they inform.
Our portfolio features influential and respected editorial properties including Vox, New York Magazine, The Verge, The Cut, Eater, Vulture, The Strategist, Polygon, SB Nation, Intelligencer, Curbed, Grub Street and Recode. Off-platform, the Vox Media Podcast Network offers one of the largest collections of popular podcasts, and Vox Media Studios produces and distributes the award-winning nonfiction shows. Powered by innovative technology that scales quality, the Chorus publishing platform and Concert advertising marketplace answer the always-changing needs of modern audiences, creators and marketers.
Vox Media has been named one of Fast Company’s “Most Innovative Companies in Media,” an Inc. “Company of the Year,” Digiday’s “Best Company for Parents,” and one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality by the Human Rights Campaign.
The Cut is in a dynamic conversation with women about the issues that matter to us most — politics, intersectional feminism, work, money, relationships, mental health, sex, fashion, and issues relating to equality. Our stories are organized around four categories: Style, Self, Culture, and Power — words that provide a loose framework for the myriad stories we tell.
We are hiring a Senior Editor with a broad range of interests. You should be deeply curious, enthusiastic, and possess a keen appreciation for storytelling and breaking news. If you’re not yet an expert in politics, that’s okay. We’re more interested in a sharp sense of humor and the ability to translate complex ideas into memorable features and packages—preferably someone dynamic, high-energy, and who loves challenges and starting conversations.

  • Other responsibilities as assigned by manager
Role Requirements
  • Minimum of 8 years of journalism experience, with at least 3 years of editing
  • Bachelor’s degree in journalism or related field
  • Familiarity editing longform writing
