Texas Monthly is looking for a senior editor to lead the magazine’s coverage of business and innovation in the Lone Star State, from the iconic companies that have long called Texas home, to our massive energy industry (spanning both fossil fuels and alternatives), to the big tech firms and others relocating here, to our entrepreneurs and inventors across many industries. We want inside-the-boardroom tales of corporate transformation, profiles of business leaders upending the status quo, and smartly rendered analysis of how the state’s economic landscape is evolving. This editor will also assign and edit stories about environmental concerns and scientific and technological research in Texas, particularly in the medical field.

Ideal candidates should be digitally fluent, literary-minded journalists who are able to move easily among storytelling platforms, story styles, and subjects. They will be expected to work with our staff writers, cultivate a reliable and diverse stable of freelance writers, meet deadlines (and help others do the same), and develop narrative-driven and character-driven approaches to business stories.

This is a full-time position with generous benefits, including a comprehensive health-insurance plan, 401(k) matching, profit sharing, and the potential to be eligible for bonuses. Compensation is competitive and negotiable.
