Morning Brew seeks editor for new investing newsletter

Morning Brew seeks an energetic and thoughtful editor for an upcoming investing newsletter that takes Morning Brew’s approach to business news deeper into markets and investing.

Morning Brew aims to make a complex business world more conversational and interesting to millions of readers looking for a news source that values their time and speaks to them like normal human beings. We have a natural opportunity to go even deeper on these companies and stories and take our approach to business news coverage into the world of investing – whether public, private, venture, crowdfunding, etc.

This position will report to the Managing Editor of Morning Brew. The ideal candidate will be extremely interested in investing, have a in-depth understanding of how major markets function, and is able to identify the stories that matter most to our audience. Being able to build the brand’s fun, informative, trusted personality is a critical piece of being the right fit for this role.

You will also be a compassionate and detailed line-editor that deeply understands Morning Brew’s style: witty but not cringe, informative but never dry, and, above all, memorable.

This job will require you to work cross-functionally with copy editors, fact-checkers, creators, freelance writers, designers, growth and social leads, and engineers. Being a team player and getting along with peers is essential. You should also be flexible: We’re in high-growth mode at Morning Brew and a game-for-anything attitude is a must.

Candidates with at least three years of experience editing business news are strongly preferred. Have you edited or written for a newsletter before? Even better.

Morning Brew is based in New York City and local candidates will be given preference, though remote applications will be considered.

COMPENSATION $110,000*Final offers for this job will be made commensurate with experience. Total offer package to include benefits highlighted under our perks section below.
