CNBC Digital seeks small business editor

November 13, 2014

Posted by Chris Roush

CNBC Digital is looking for a Small Business Editor to lead the website’s effort to develop more content aimed at news and trends affecting the more than 28 million small businesses in the U.S. and helping leaders of those operations make better financial decisions. In this role, the successful candidate will assign and develop stories that explain how the day’s fast-breaking news events impact small businesses, as well as more evergreen features that tackle bigger business challenges that aren’t as directly driven by the news cycle, such as taxes, financing, management and franchising.

The ideal candidate will be passionate about finance and have a sophisticated appreciation for news and topics of interest to small business owners and top executives. A self-starter, this editor will relish the challenge of rethinking and expanding our current small business coverage—both on and for distribution to our many partner sites—extending beyond the daily news cycle to offer insightful analysis and long-range strategies that will prove indispensable to our audience. At the same time, this editor’s challenge is to offer a swifter and more deeply reported response to news than has been the norm for this category.

As part of the site’s Enterprise Team, the Small Business Editor will be responsible for managing a team of in-house contributors and freelance writers, and will work with CNBC’s video producers, television shows and program departments to conceptualize and guide development of a full range of content. The Small Business Editor will take content through the entire publication process: editing and publishing, working with video journalists to create digital video, and liaising with graphic and production staff to add appropriate multi-media elements and materials.

The Small Business Editor will have at least five years’ experience covering business and financial news, a track record as a writer and/or editor for the web and ability to motivate and manage reporters and other staff. Knowledge of web publishing a must. Experience working in multiple media formats a major plus, as is ability to handle deadline pressure and comfort working within a matrixed environment.

This is a full-time staff position at CNBC headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.
