Posted by Chris Roush

CNBC is looking for an enthusiastic, quick-thinking and collaborative deputy editor for our company and business news team at CNBC Digital.

This person will work with the team’s senior editor and a fellow deputy editor on coverage of major consumer-centric companies spanning transportation, retail, restaurants and health, among other areas, for CNBC’s widely read news site. This is a management position that will have 2-4 direct reports within the business and company news team and work daily with 10-12 reporters.

What you’ll do:

  • Edit and assign breaking business news stories, articles about corporate earnings reports and follow-up pieces.
  • Coordinate and conceive features, investigative stories, long-term projects and other enterprise reporting across the entire team and, sometimes, the newsroom.
  • Manage a small group of reporters, executing such duties as running meetings, conducting 1-on-1 check-ins and performance reviews.
  • Identify and execute opportunities to promote digital content on the CNBC broadcast network, and vice versa.
  • Occasionally write articles and newsletters.


What you’ll bring:

  • Top-notch editing skills – You’ll have at least 5 years’ experience writing and/or editing news about corporations, markets or the economy. You’re a great line editor, you have a knack for shaping story structure, and you have a strong knowledge of consumer and market trends.
  • Experience working with reporters – You’ll have at least a year of experience managing or mentoring reporters, including a track record of helping shape coverage priorities.
  • Strong news judgement – You’ll be able to sort through headlines and news updates to find the CNBC way into a story and prioritize time and resources to best serve our audience.
  • Sharp writing skills – You’ll help develop less-seasoned journalists, and you’ll write some copy yourself.
  • Time management – You’re organized and you keep things on an even keel whether it’s busy or slow.

What we’ll offer:

  • Sweat it out — Free onsite fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment  and group classes
  • Eat up — Gourmet cafeteria with daily specials, plus soup and salad bars
  • Extras — Dry cleaning
