The Washington Post

Assignment Editor in Features
The Washington Post has an opening for an assignment editor in Features on its Style team.

We are looking for a versatile, experienced editor able to sharpen the copy of some of our premier writers and critics on the must-read stories of the day, which build off the people, moments and ideas at the center of the cultural conversation. We want an editor who can identify original and unexpected angles in news events -- especially in the realms of politics, race and identity -- and collaborate with reporters to write them in a distinctive way.

The ideal candidate must possess top-notch editing skills and experience working in a variety of story forms, including trend pieces, daily stories, profiles and narratives.

The Post strives to provide its readers with high-quality, trustworthy news and information while constantly innovating. That mission is best served by a diverse, multi-generational workforce with varied life experiences and perspectives. All cultures and backgrounds are welcomed. 

This position is based in our Washington newsroom and may require some weekend or holiday shifts. Once we resume normal operations, the position will not be eligible for remote work.
