Insider seeks a West Coast business editor
Insider is looking for a news editor who is quick, passionate about breaking business news, and has a knack for telling stories in a relatable and compelling way. This is a full-time position based on the West Coast.
This editor will work as a player/coach alongside senior news editors and a small team of reporters and fellows who help cover stories from our business verticals, including tech, finance, strategy, transportation, healthcare and retail.
