Sherwood Media

Sherwood Media is Robinhood’s new, independent media brand for news and information about the markets, economics, business, technology, and the culture of money.

The story of money is the story of culture, and Sherwood is the secret weapon for the next generation of investors. Our team is making financial news more accessible, entertaining, and relevant by improving the way it is curated, shared, and consumed. We are building on the success of Snacks — our flagship markets and business newsletter — which has one of the largest audiences in the country.

About the team + role 

We’re looking for an editor with experience leading and motivating business reporters. You are a business news junkie, and you are driven to get the best information to readers.

You will work with reporters to develop and deliver compelling and accurate stories and analysis on all aspects of business. Coverage may include company profiles, earnings analysis, leadership interviews, regulatory matters, industry trends, thought provoking anecdotes, and anything else that helps inform readers on how business really works. You should have an ability to break through the noise and a vision for improving the existing ways of coverage to better serve modern audiences.

The role is located in the office location(s) listed on this job description which will align with our in-office working environment. Please connect with your recruiter for more information regarding our in-office philosophy and expectations.

What you’ll do

  • As part of the Sherwood Media team, you’ll be on the pulse of the daily business news cycle. You’ll work closely with news editors and writers to pitch, develop, and refine stand-out business stories, crafted for our readers, not just financiers.
  • Your core responsibility is editing business writers as they develop and draft timely news stories and analysis. This includes recurring features like opinion columns, interviews, and long form reporting.
  • You will communicate and coordinate with editors in planning, scheduling, publishing, and distributing stories and features.
  • You will help ensure our coverage spans a balance of perspectives and topics, and uphold Sherwood’s editorial and ethics standards.
  • Here, you will have the opportunity to transform your career in a dynamic environment that supports excellence and autonomy.

What you bring

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree or equivalent work experience in a business newsroom
  • Previous experience covering news and reacting to breaking-news situations
  • Knowledge of other key editorial players in the landscape and the desire to hone Sherwood’s distinct voice
  • A love for news and keen editorial judgment. You’re eager to make people’s financial lives better through news that delivers key insights and education
  • Quick. Clear. Engaging. You’re able to break down business concepts and make them easy to understand and digestible for a broad audience
  • You’re not satisfied with a summary — you can find “the story within a story” and connect events to the bigger picture
  • You have an ownership mentality. You’re constantly looking for the next story, and are driven to hone your craft and find better ways to serve our audience
  • You prioritize quality and pay strong attention to detail, factual precision, and nuance
  • Flexibility and willingness to collaborate cross-functionally, experiment, and develop new tools
