Join Our Team: Culture Editor

We are looking for a talented and passionate individual to lead RADII’s Culture section. This is an exciting role with the opportunity to really shape one of RADII’s key content verticals and make an immediate impact. The Culture Editor will write or edit all of the content that is published in this section, shaping its long-term editorial strategy and maintaining its day-to-day publication schedule.

This is a full-time position with commensurate pay, based in our office in Shanghai.

About the section 

Culture is one of RADII’s three core verticals, along with Innovation and Life, and is a major part of RADII’s
 fast-growing reputation for informative, on-the-ground content from the heart of China’s cutting-edge arts scenes.

From reinterpretations of traditional culture, to groundbreaking new music and art, 
and a film market that is increasingly one of the most important in the world, China’s cultural 
scenes are having an impact across the globe — we want you to tell the stories behind it all.

Culture Editor duties include

  • Plan content (including articles and video) on a weekly and monthly basis, coordinating with the Managing Editor to fit this plan into RADII’s overall publication schedule and strategy
  • Write or edit 3-5 articles per week of varying length and scope (from Daily Drips to full-length features)
  • Recruit contributors for the section, plus edit and publish their contributions
  • Participate in regular editorial meetings where appropriate and supporting the overall team in other activities
  • Represent RADII within China’s arts communities and beyond, including through events and networking

You’ll have editorial experience at a comparable publication or in a relevant area and should be intimately familiar with at least one of China’s art, music, or film and TV industries as well as non-mainstream activities in that field.

Most importantly, you’ll have a strong desire to carry out RADII’s mission of creating new bridges of cultural understanding via original, incisive, and youthful reporting on today’s China.

If you’re interested, email your CV, a few relevant writing clips (or examples of pieces you’ve edited), and a short cover letter to [email protected].


RADII (rā’dē-ī’) is an independent media platform dedicated to understanding and sharing vibrant stories at the core of the world’s most populous nation.

The China of copycats, corruption, and smog still exists, but it’s changing – fast. A new generation is ready to transform the country. From unwavering environmentalists and ethnic dialect rappers, to visionary entrepreneurs and sage healers, there are people across the country from all walks of life, all poised to make waves. RADII aims to share their stories.

In changing, challenging times, we need mutual understanding between China and the outside world now more than ever. RADII views China honestly, critically, and humanely, from the inside out. Our hope is that the truth becomes obvious: our commonalities are greater than our differences.
