Medium · Feb 7th 2019
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 home to a thriving community of writers and experts sharing stories and ideas about cryptocurrency and its related fields. We’re looking for an editor with specialized knowledge of subjects like blockchain, Ethereum, crypto-funds, and ICOs. This editor will identify and feature the best self-published stories on these and other related topics every day.
The ideal candidate for this position can predict tomorrow’s cryptocurrency headlines. They know the field inside and out, and can quickly discern between an intelligent insight and a rehashed hot take. They are familiar with key players and trends in the field, and can be relied on to ensure that Medium is contributing to the day’s conversation—or starting new ones—in a way that our subscribers find informative and valuable. Medium should be the go-to resource for cryptocurrency enthusiasts and insiders as they make investment decisions or study up on the latest in this rapidly changing field.
This editor knows great writing when they see it, but they also have a knack for making things better. They love to read and have a sixth sense for what other people want to read; they have a critical eye and can deliver constructive editorial feedback that takes a piece from good to great. They should also be obsessed with details.
This editor has an eye for quality, is a skillful communicator, and displays excellent editorial judgment.
