This editor will interact with newsroom and commercial colleagues, utilizing a keen news sense and rigorous attention to detail. He or she will be involved from conception, logistics planning and audience outreach; to event-day support, social-media publishing and follow-up communications. This editor also will contribute to projects associated with specialized news services for WSJ.
The ideal candidate will have a significant background in reporting or editing and a passion for exploring the digital transformation of the news business.
Applications should include a resume and cover letter.
