The job also involves overseeing a handful of columns, including Work Friend (advice), Scratch (graphic journalism), Corner Office (C.E.O. interviews) and Like a Boss (workweek diaries).

- Collaborate with visual editors to create striking art and section covers
- Work with Times reporters and editors to identify Sunday projects that expand on daily news coverage
- Cultivate freelancers that bring in new perspectives and stories and steer the Sunday columnists to topics that add mix and surprise
- A long track record of shepherding excellent longform journalism
- A facility with both intense reporting projects and lighter sensibility pieces
- A knack for framing, cover lines, and what stories not to pursue
- Good cheer when switching from one ambitious plan to another midweek, as news demands
- A sense of humor and a liberal definition of what “business” is
