Then we want to hear from you.
The ever-growing, award-winning, whip-smart and world-savvy international news start-up known as GlobalPost is hiring a senior editor.
The ideal candidate has reporting and editing expertise in political economy and/or conflict, especially in the Middle East. He or she is web savvy and well-traveled, with experience working abroad and the rare ability to write global news with plenty of voice.
