Job Description

The Washington Post is looking for an experienced, innovative editor to run the Lifestyle team in Features.

The Lifestyle editor manages four important areas of content - wellness, parenting, home and KidsPost - and also oversees the weekly Local Living print section and other special sections. This is a key leadership position in Features, guiding the day-to-day coverage of these topics as well as managing a dynamic team of reporters and editors. As The Post expands its service journalism to empower readers to make wise decisions about their lives, the Lifestyle editor will play a key role in overseeing this evolution.

We are looking for an accomplished, creative editor who is enthusiastic about lifestyle journalism and committed to providing readers with accessible and actionable advice. The ideal candidate will have a clear vision for coverage of these topics, experience serving a digital audience and a commitment to telling stories in a variety of formats.

This position is based in our Washington newsroom. Once we resume normal operations, it will not be eligible for remote work.

The Post strives to provide its readers with high-quality, trustworthy news and information while constantly innovating. That mission is best served by a diverse, multi-generational workforce with varied life experiences and perspectives. All cultures and backgrounds are welcomed.

Interested candidates should upload a cover letter, résumé and memo on how you would approach the role to our jobs portal by May 17. All application materials can be uploaded to the same field. The cover letter should be addressed to Executive Features Editor Liz Seymour, Deputy Features Editors Mitch Rubin and David Malitz, and Managing Editors Tracy Grant and Krissah Thompson.
