Our employees are talented writers, editors, engineers, designers, marketers, brand strategists and more, who are excited about building the next great sports media company. Founded in 2016, The Athletic is a direct-to-consumer subscription media company offering local and national sports coverage. With a presence in more than 47 markets in the US, Canada and the UK, The Athletic's world-class editorial team has produced thousands of in-depth articles as well as a newly released lineup of podcasts and videos. Our headquarters is in San Francisco, we have offices in New York, Los Angeles, London and Melbourne, Australia, and our 400+ editorial employees are based in their respective markets.

Move forward fearlessly.

We are a company that is redefining the way fans get access to sports content. We've never been afraid to push the envelope and will continue to build a better experience on behalf of our team and our readers.

Never settle. No shortcuts.

We are relentless in our pursuit of the most in-depth, substantive sports coverage. Our model allows us to create and publish content on our own terms. We employ an unrivaled team of editors and writers who put in the hard work.

Be authentic.

Credibility and a unique approach to storytelling are at the core of everything we publish. Covering the best stories with integrity, our writers are encouraged to build their own brand and act as leading sources of truth.

Build community.

We are at our best when we empower all perspectives and hold each other accountable. We foster a unique community unlike any other, where sports fans and writers can come together to share ideas, display their passions, and engage in meaningful debate.
