Who Are We?
The Atlantic has, for over 160 years, been a rebel in the media space. We’ve never been afraid to challenge the status quo, from advocating for abolitionism—when it was still an unpopular idea—to exploring whether junk food might be the modern cure for obesity. And our creative marketing group, Atlantic Re: think, is no different: we create content, campaigns, and technology that constantly seeks to push the limits of what’s possible. Perhaps that’s why AdAge called The Atlantic brand a “multi-platform juggernaut.”
Who Are You?
You’re a creative problem solver, with a strong design background, who pays attention to the details and also relishes the idea of endless possibilities. You work well with others and can communicate ideas clearly. And, professionally and personally, you possess:
The ability to both “lookup” and think conceptually and “look down” and execute exceptionally
A calm, cool, and collected mind—a constitution that affords “grace under fire”—coupled with a personality inclined toward perpetual positivity and a sense of possibility
A passion for the past, present and future of design on the web and in print and a willingness to learn new things every day.
What Will You Do?
You’ll join Atlantic Re: think, The Atlantic's award-winning creative marketing team: a small, passionate, scrappy group of idealists, realists, thinkers, and doers. In your role as part of a larger design team.
Atlantic Media Values:
Across Atlantic Media, generally, the firm looks for two “pillar gifts” in its candidates.
In all of us, these are more aspirational than actual, but they are central in our intentions.
The force of Ideas: At the center of Atlantic Media work are the ideas within our writing. We believe that ideas – to the good and not – have a consequence. Our highest work is bringing rigor, insight, intellectual honesty, to that ultimate purpose of separating the bad from the good, giving voice, argument, and flight to the latter.
Spirit of Generosity: Atlantic Media seeks in its ranks a spirit of generosity – a natural disposition in each colleague toward service and selfless conduct. Atlantic Media writing should be cut from the same cloth – critical on the merits but informed by charity and forbearance in measuring motive and personal character.
Atlantic Media is an EOE of Minorities/Women/Vets/Disability.
Experience with basic HTML and CSS is a plus.
