How do we showcase the work of creative developers? How can we make the App Store a place our hundreds of millions of customers will want to visit every single day? We're hiring people who want to help make that happen!

The App Store Editorial team curates, recommends, writes, and publishes stories and promotions about hundreds of apps and games that help, inform, and inspire.

The role maintains App Store's editorial goals, voice, and tone working closely with Design, Marketing, Video, and Product partners.

If you're an experienced content editor with top-notch storytelling, communication, and collaboration skills, and a passion for mobile technology and culture, you're an ideal candidate.

You should be results driven, highly efficient and creative, with the leadership experience to work with multiple internal partners, and an extensive background producing timely world-class content-including text, art, and video- that drives user engagement.

The Special Projects Editor is an individual contributor reporting to the App Store Editor-In-Chief.
