VICE Media Group's portfolio includes Refinery29, the leading global media and entertainment company focused on women; PULSE Films, a London-based next-generation production studio with outposts in Los Angeles, New York, Paris and Berlin; i-D, a global digital and bimonthly magazine defining fashion and contemporary culture; and Garage, a digital platform and biannual publication converging the worlds of art and design

VICE x Team

The Features team produces investigations and narrative features at VICE News. We cover stories of national and global importance, focusing on abuses of power and inequality in science, health, media, technology, and more. We are highly collaborative with each other and with other teams, but also do a great deal of our work independently.

Role x You

This job will offer unusual latitude to publish the stories you want to read. The Senior Features Editor will primarily be responsible for commissioning, editing, and publishing international coverage, broadly defined, working with the Editorial Director to determine its exact scope and focus. We'll be looking for stories about abuses of power and what life is like around the world that other outlets aren't telling, and to identify and develop regular contributors who can carry out ongoing campaigns of coverage. Other responsibilities will include working with staff writers on our desk and across the newsroom on everything from developing ideas to reporting to copy editing to packaging; paperwork; and, should you be so inclined, working on investigations and features of your own.

This is a temporary role that will end in May 2021.

Qualifications

  • The ideal candidate will have spent several years editing in a fast-paced digital newsroom.
  • They'll have significant experience working on complex and legally sensitive stories, a deep knowledge of international affairs, a sense of what makes for an arresting story and how best to tell it.
  • a deep network of contacts.

We'd love if you also had these:

  • A good sense of humor.
  • Experience across international reporting landscape

We want to find people who believe in our goals and feel inspired enough to grow while they're here to fill the role, rather than someone who checks the boxes but isn't invested. We encourage you to apply and show us what you've got.

Qualified candidates must be able to perform the essential functions of this position satisfactorily, with or without reasonable accommodation. The requirements and essential functions described above are not an exhaustive list and instead are meant to describe the general nature and level of work required of the job. VICE reserves the right to modify the essential functions of this position where a legitimate business reason exists.

If you require reasonable accommodation during the application and selection process, please let us know. We will work together to best meet your needs.

Working at VICE

VICE prioritizes the ideas and people that other media companies miss. We believe that innovation is a direct result of diverse, inclusive cultures so we don't just "tolerate" differences, we celebrate it and see it as essential to our staff, culture, and business.To learn more read the VICE Guide to VICE

If the job should transition to a full-time employment opportunity, VICE offers comprehensive benefits including but not limited to trans-inclusive benefits, fertility benefits, and tuition reimbursement. We also have dog-friendly days, bagel Fridays, and the occasional drag show in our conveniently located Williamsburg office. Day-to-day you can enjoy a rooftop garden full of edible produce (in the summer), beer, snacks and the opportunity to make the work of a lifetime if you're into that sort of thing, which we hope you are.
