Slate is hiring a full-time culture writer. Ideal candidates will be insightful, funny, opinionated, game, and able to write in an array of modes, with a knack for mounting surprising, persuasive arguments and finding unexplored angles on familiar subjects. We’re looking for someone with excellent news sense and good judgment who writes sparkling copy. In any given week, our attentions may be captured by a controversial movie, a groundbreaking TV show, or a critical dust-up, and our culture writer should have a piqued interest in any and all of it. The position is on staff, with benefits, and can be based in Slate’s Brooklyn office, its D.C. office, or remote.
