Essays and Op-Ed Editor
Racked is looking for an editor who will conceptualize, assign, and edit personal essays and op-eds. The ideal candidate is an experienced editor with a stable of talented freelancers who is equally comfortable editing for tone and editing for argument.

Racked is looking for a full-time news editor to oversee our national news desk. The ideal candidate is an excellent and quick writer/editor with a proven track record of breaking news. This person will own and build out Racked's news program. We are looking for someone who can not only manage a news schedule, but who can also react quickly to breaking news.
Racked is looking for a full-time fashion assistant. The right candidate is organized, with strong attention to detail, and a deep knowledge of and love for fashion. You are also a quick, clean writer; savvy when it comes to content that works well on the web; visually-inclined; and have a sense of humor. This is an entry-level job that will involve supporting, pitching, writing, and executing content for our Fashion and Shopping pages.
