Morning Brew seeks a Healthcare Brew editor

Morning Brew is a media company that covers the business news and narratives shaping our world. The companies, the people, the workplace, the economy — we nerd out on this stuff, and we’re dedicated to helping our audience navigate it all in a way that informs and entertains.

The Morning Brew team is clever, creative, and growing fast. Want in? Read on.

OVERVIEW

We’re looking for an editor to lead a team of reporters and steer coverage. This is both a strategic and hands-on role that will allow you to shape the future of this exciting publication.

Healthcare Brew, part of Morning Brew’s professional editorial strategy, tells the story of how a vital industry (a multi-trillion-dollar one, to boot!) navigates technological, political, societal, and economic change—and how to help professionals in the healthcare space make better decisions that, ultimately, affect us all.

Healthcare Brew covers pharmaceutical developments, health startups, the latest tech, and how it impacts hospitals and providers to keep administrators and providers informed.

The publication’s audience of 110,000 healthcare professionals covers and creates news about how the healthcare industry is adapting to new pressures: from an aging population, from new policies and new technologies, from a society trying to figure out if healthcare is a right or a privilege.

Morning Brew is based in New York City but this role is remote-friendly for all candidates.

HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL BE WORKING ON

– Manage day-to-day operations of the Healthcare Brew newsletter production process, including assigning/approving stories, editing pieces, and writing headlines.
– Manage, coach, and develop a team of three reporters.
– Generate, develop, and execute ideas for non-newsletter products and other special editorial projects—like events or research.
– Participate in Healthcare Brew events, both IRL and virtual.
– Write stories if and as needed.
– Enforce Morning Brew editorial guidelines, editing stories for high-level substance, Brew tone and voice, and standard copy.
– Support optimization of existing publication processes and establish new ones where needed.
– Support analysis of audience trends.

QUALIFICATIONS

– At least 8 years of professional editorial experience
– At least 5 years experience managing a team of writers
