Job Description
Government Executive Media Group, a division of Atlantic Media, seeks an experienced, digital-savvy editor and writer to play a key role in our expanded coverage of national security issues. We’re looking to provide smart, indispensable, accessible and timely content across a variety of platforms for decision makers in defense policy and execution. 
Responsibilities Include:
•Report and write analytical pieces on national defense with a distinctive voice that goes beyond the news
•Edit copy produced internally and externally on tight deadlines

•Digital reporting, publishing and social media experience

•Positive, good-natured, energetic attitude
Core Attributes:
•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 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.
