About Us

As the publisher of both Inc. and Fast Company, Mansueto Ventures is home to two of the most iconic and vibrant brands in the world of business publications. Every day, the content, awards and events we produce help entrepreneurs and innovators succeed. All provide useful insights, spark essential conversations and provide much needed inspiration.

Fast Company is the world’s leading business media brand, with an editorial focus on innovation in technology, leadership, world changing ideas, creativity, and design. Written for and about the most progressive business leaders, Fast Company inspires readers to think expansively, lead with purpose, embrace change, and shape the future of business.

Just as Inc. and Fast Company pride themselves on advocating progressive and innovative business practices, all of us at MV are determined to walk the talk. We strive to be a transparent, dynamic, and responsible organization that gives all of its employees a meaningful role in helping to shape what we do and how we do it.

About The Role

Fast Company is looking for an assistant editor to work on its Impact section, covering the intersection of business and social good, focusing on social entrepreneurship, climate solutions, alternative economic models, corporate social responsibility, and the future of food, transportation, and more. We’re looking for someone with interest and ideas about the intersection of business and changemaking—how the business world can (and can’t) influence the path of progress.

This is a full-time staff position with competitive pay and benefits, based in our New York office in Lower Manhattan (there is potential for remote work for the right candidate).

What You’ll Be Doing

Your job will be to help tell the stories of people working on cutting-edge solutions and exposing when those solutions aren’t what they promised. You’ll be reporting and writing stories daily, helping with some editing and display copy writing, and working with us on managing our annual World Changing Ideas Awards program. 

What We’re Looking For

You should have daily reporting experience at a newspaper or an online publication, preferably covering the technology industry, and you should be a critical thinker who’s as comfortable writing short news posts as you are crafting a 2,000-word feature. Experience writing about (or prior interest and expertise in) some of the topic areas the Impact section covers is a plus.

To apply, send your résumé and a short note explaining why you’re a good fit for the position to Impact editor Morgan Clendaniel ( with the subject “Impact Assistant Editor.”

This position will be represented by the Fast Company Union/WGA-East.

Mansueto Ventures is an equal opportunity employer, and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status or any other characteristic protected by law.
