LinkedIn seeks news editor

July 28, 2014

Posted by Chris Roush

If you’re a journalist who wants to play a big in role shaping the future of business news and views, this is the right position for you.

As an editor on the editorial team behind Pulse and LinkedIn Influencer, you’ll help professionals around the world get the news they need to be better at what they do and get them writing what they know in order to drive the business conversation.

The editor will be responsible for working with a roster of top thought leaders on posts about business trends, social impact changes, career guidance and leadership ideas. You’ll also be responsible for reaching out to huge numbers of professionals — many of whom have never written before but have insights that deserve to be heard — to get them sharing their thoughts. You’ll curate great content from top publishers like Re/Code, NYT, Fortune, Forbes, Bloomberg, CNBC and more. And you’ll come up with new ways to combine content with the data and systems that make LinkedIn unique.

The editor should have experience with original and curated news, have incredibly strong news sense, be deeply knowledgeable about business news, be a sharp and quick writer and editor and have an entrepreneurial spirit, and be a digital native. The ideal candidate is as interested in shaping a product as shaping a story.

The position is based in NYC, where the editorial team is headquartered, with frequent trips to San Francisco, where the content team is located.
