Insider seeks an executive editor for business coverage
Insider is hiring an Executive Editor for Business to oversee one of our largest editorial teams and become a top executive in our newsroom.
This person will report to the co-Editor in Chief, and play a lead role in driving a newsroom of more than 70 reporters and editors focused on: finance, markets and investing, real estate, wealth, healthcare, leadership, careers, small business, and more.
This is a high-profile role in a newsroom that values creativity, accountability, and diversity of ideas and opinions. We are looking for someone with leadership skills to guide experienced and inexperienced reporters and editors alike, and collaboration skills to work with editors across a wide range of teams.
The EE will have a keen eye for talent and an ability to build dynamic and diverse teams. The ideal candidate should be talented at organization and management to ensure that Insider remains nimble even as we grow.
The person in this position is flexible and able to adapt quickly in a fast-paced newsroom. The ideal candidate for this role should be someone who is open to feedback and wants to get better every day. The ideal candidate will also have:
- Have impeccable news judgement and a keen sense of how to get ahead of the curve on the personalities, power struggles, and key trends that will dominate the conversation in business.
- An interest in telling compelling stories about everything from the hunt for a COVID vaccine to a new generation of millennial day traders.
- Be creative and have strong communication skills to assign and guide ambitious long-term features and projects, as well as the flexibility to run to the news and land competitive stories.
- Be excited at the opportunity to hire extensively, and have a clear vision for what would elevate our coverage and newsroom.
