After graduating from Brown, Levin began his journalism career as an intern at the Washington City Paper in Washington, D.C. He moved to Slate in 2003 where he is currently a senior editor. He edits the magazine's sports and technology sections.
In 2013, for Slate, he wrote an article on Linda Taylor, a woman the Chicago Tribune and Ronald Reagan once termed a "welfare queen." The article, which explored Taylor's history of criminal acts, some allegedly neglected by the authorities and more serious than those for which she was convicted, was praised by media sources, with the Washington Monthly called it "the most fascinating true crime read of the year."
In 2019, Levin wrote The Queen: The Forgotten Life Behind an American Myth. The book expanded the life of Linda Taylor and her repeated acts of fraud and theft.  It won the 2019 National Book Critics Circle Award (Biography).
