Senior Editor, Ideas
WIRED is the place where a better future is imagined. We are seeking an experienced editor who can lead our Ideas section, the home for sharp essays about the most intriguing issues in science and technology. WIRED Ideas are some of the most popular pieces on our website. They range from ambitious proposals for using technology to improve the state of the world to clear-eyed warnings about the dangers of a new trend, and are often by some of the leading experts in their fields. As the editor of this section, working with a small team of other editors, you’ll scout for talented thinkers and writers, help them shape their thoughts, and edit their work. You’ll be on the lookout for both far-sighted, provocative predictions and for experts who can respond quickly and in an interesting way to major news events. You’ll be expected to generate story ideas that advance conversation on important topics, and match them effectively with talented writers. Depending on your experience and interest, you may also edit longform narrative features.
