WSJ seeks editor for venture capital coverage
The Wall Street Journal Professional Products group is seeking a top-notch editor to lead its VentureCapital team.
WSJ Pro Venture Capital covers the individual funding rounds behind startups and delve into their business models. We also step back to report on developing trends in investing and fundraising, often working with data. We write for specialist professionals–principally venture capitalists–but still aim to simplify and explain.
The San Francisco-based editor will be responsible for producing a premium WSJ product offering that includes a daily newsletter, stories, events and data tools.
The editor will work with a team of dedicated WSJ Pro editors and reporters on scoops, analysis, and data-driven stories focused on information to meet the needs of our specialist venture capital market subscribers as well as print and online audiences.
The ideal editor should have sound knowledge of the industry and the ability to simply explain complex technology businesses and term sheet terminology. Experience exploring data to find and tell original stories and the ability to build charts and visuals to support them is essential.
We need an editor who can handle a busy flow of copy and work with reporters closely to improve the coverage and quality. This editor should be able to simplify complex technology businesses and term sheet terminology as well as put it into context for the big picture. They should be able to cast a skeptical eye over the business aspirations of ambitious entrepreneurs and cut through hype to help present our readers with fact-based, analytical reporting.
