The Wall Street Journal is seeking a news leader to champion digital journalistic excellence across our coverage of markets, banking, investing, deals and more. A first challenge in the role will be to help develop, launch and steer a major new product focused on financial markets.
You will be a hands-on editor, working with a team of 100 journalists in the U.S., Europe and Asia. You’ll work tactically every day to ensure our journalism reaches the widest possible audience in the most compelling way. You’ll think strategically about new approaches and new formats, and you’ll develop and execute plans off of that strategy. The job has broad scope and the pace of a digital newsroom.
Help develop and steer Live Markets, a new product and new way of covering markets that combines news, analysis and market-data visualization.
Own data and analytics for the group, preparing statistical reports and working with other editors to monitor, meet and exceed our key performance indicators.
Be a member of the Finance editing team and an active participant in our news meetings, helping shape stories with an eye toward drawing in new readers and keeping our subscribers satisfied.
Monitor how people search and discuss topics of interest online, and use that SEO and social expertise to help Finance editors plan coverage.
Help editors and reporters execute on ways to tell stories apart from traditional text, whether through live journalism, visuals, video and podcasts or other approaches.
Work tactically to improve the audience performance of everything we publish, every day.
Work strategically to improve our audience performance over time.
Work across teams–including web publishing, social media, newsletters, visuals and live events–to produce compelling journalism.
Digital skills including some combination of live coverage, digital formats, digital production or digital project management.
Data skills and experience using tools for web analytics. Experience with SQL, Python or other data-analysis languages is a strong advantage.
An understanding of financial markets
Enthusiasm for innovation and a commitment to the outstanding journalism that is our hallmark.
At least five years experience reporting or editing at a news organization.
