The Chicago Tribune is seeking a digital-first senior content editor to help lead our business, financial and consumer coverage.

We cover the Chicago-area business community and localize national trends and issues, with the goal of covering the companies and topics that have a connection with the daily lives of our readers.

We’ve got a good story to tell – just surpassed 100,000 digital-only subscribers – and we’re looking to move fast on filling this position.
