At Medium, words matter. We are building the best place for reading and writing on the internet — a place where today’s smartest writers, thinkers, experts, and storytellers can share big, interesting ideas; a place where ideas are judged on the value they provide to readers, not the fleeting attention they can attract for advertisers.

Medium is growing its curation team. We are looking for curators who know quality writing when they see it. Medium curators read posts written by thousands of writers and use our curation standards to select the best posts to distribute on our topic pages and other channels. A keen discernment of quality is key (which is where your editorial judgment comes in), but so is speed.

What will you do?

  • Use Medium’s tools and comb your own favorite Medium sources to find high-quality stories
  • Accept or reject those stories based on the curation standards and your editorial judgment
  • Classify accepted posts into topics
  • Flag the highest-quality posts and writers to our editorial team
  • Flag rules violations to the Trust & Safety team
  • Advise Curation Manager on topic creation and organization
  • Coordinate with the Curation Manager and the curation team via Slack

Who are you?

  • You are a curious reader with excellent taste and judgment
  • You believe that good stories can come from anywhere—including topics you’re not passionate about or viewpoints you don’t agree with
  • You’re a straightforward and effective communicator
  • You’re comfortable working remotely/independently and can adapt quickly to change

Sound like you? We’d love to hear from you.

Please note that your application will not be complete until you’ve submitted your responses for the assignmentfound here.

At Medium, we foster an inclusive, supportive, fun and challenging team environment. We value having a team that is made up of a diverse set of backgrounds and respect the healthy expression of diverse opinions. We embrace experimentation and the examination of all kinds of ideas through reasoning and testing. Come join us as we continue to change the world of digital media.

Medium is an equal opportunity employer.
