The Wall Street Journal is looking for a New York-based editor to oversee a new initiative to engage with young audiences.
You will work with the editor of our forthcoming new digital magazine for people under age 34 and you'll connect the magazine with other coverage desks around the Journal.

The new magazine is a project tied to the Journal’s digital experience and strategy department, which is an incubator for new technologies, audience growth, community and news innovation. The department includes the full range of journalistic talent that makes the Journal one of the leading news organizations in the world—reporters, video journalists, graphics reporters, editors, product managers, engineers, designers, data scientists, artificial intelligence experts and more—in a lively, collaborative project to discover new offerings of journalistic value.
This role gives you the ability to work on a multi-dimensional project and also to collaborate with others in the newsroom and product, design and engineering teams to create an exciting community of young people connecting over thoughtful content.
You should be a strong storyteller, have good news judgment and be comfortable with audience data as a factor in decision-making. The position requires proficiency with digital publishing tools, and good knowledge of the markers of quality in various mediums.
You will report to the Chief News Strategist.
At least five years in an editing/leadership role, plus significant experience writing and curating content for a publisher.
A lens on students and people in their teens and 20s: What are they obsessed with right now? And how do they find their content?
