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 markets reporters. You are deeply entrenched in the financial markets, and you are driven to get the best information to readers.

You will work with reporters to develop and deliver compelling and accurate data-driven stories. This requires being current on the major market narratives and the forces moving stocks, bonds, commodities, currencies, and derivatives. This means being on top of company and industry news, the economy, technology, social issues, and policy. 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 financial news cycle. You’ll work closely with news editors and writers to pitch, develop, and refine stand-out financial stories, crafted for our readers, not just financiers.
  • Your core responsibility is editing markets 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 markets focused 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 markets 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
