Eater, the national food and restaurant publication, seeks a Features Editor to oversee its current award-winning longform feature department which includes deeply reported stories, incisive cultural criticism, and penetrating essays and continue to take it in new directions with video and multimedia storytelling.
Eater's features department uses the world of food and restaurants as a prism to explore broader questions of culture, politics, economics, science, art, history, and humanity. This is an editorial position that does not require food or food media experience, but it does demand some knowledge of the food-writing landscape and a sustaining interest in food culture. Most important in our ideal candidate is meaningful experience editing longform non-fiction and a drive to cultivate and execute important, ambitious, beautiful stories that will continue Eater's mission of expanding the boundaries of food writing.
