We are introducing a vertical to Morning Brew, all about the business of healthcare, and we’re looking for an editor to lead and shape coverage. This is both a strategic and hands-on role that will allow you to shape the future of this exciting new publication. If you like the challenge of starting an outlet from the ground up, setting editorial strategy and helping reporters execute on stories, well, we’ve got the gig for you.

As part of Morning Brew’s business-to-business (B2B) editorial strategy, Healthcare Brew sits alongside six other B2B publications: Marketing Brew, Retail Brew, HR Brew, and Emerging Tech Brew, IT Brew, and CFO Brew. We want to tell 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 environment make better decisions that, ultimately, affect us all.

Amid a pandemic, of course, healthcare is a, if not THE, topic du jour. Whether from the introduction to the rollout of vaccines, or the constant stories of a hospital system on its knees, it’s hard to ignore just how prevalent “healthcare” is in contemporary American society. And that’s not changing anytime soon.

But what is changing is how the healthcare industry is adapting to new pressures: from an aging population; from a sick population; from new policies to new technologies; from a society trying to figure out if healthcare is a right or a privilege.

The outlet will be a combination of original reporting and expert contributors offering advice, tips and research, all in service of the mission to help healthcare professionals – from hospital administrators to medical practices, and all points in between – make better decisions.

While this position is based in our New York City office, it’s contingent on stay-at-home orders; until then, all employees are working remotely.

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 two reporters.
– Overseeing a stable of contributors; managing said contributor network.
– Generate, develop, and execute ideas for non-newsletter products and other special editorial projects.
– Serve as a strategic liaison with growth, engagement, integrated marketing, and sales teams.
– Write stories if and as needed.
– Enforce Morning Brew editorial guidelines, editing content for high-level substance, Brew tone and voice, and standard copy.
– Support optimization of existing content processes and establish new ones where needed.
– Support analysis of audience trends.

What makes you qualified?

– At least 8 years of professional editorial experience
– At least 5 years experience managing a team of writers
– Ability to write in the Morning Brew style (engaging, informative, clever)
– Flexible worker who is equally motivated by strategic, long-term thinking and hands-on execution.
– Ability to intentionally experiment with, iterate on, and make hard decisions about new product offerings.
– Excellent communication skills with a mindset for collaboration.
– Ability to operate in a high-pressure environment with tight deadlines.
– Understanding of how to leverage multiple platforms (email, social media, etc.) to engage with the target audience.

What else are we looking for?
