Quartz seeks a deputy editor for membership
Quartz seeks an editor to help develop the premium content it offers its members, taking an entrepreneurial approach to defining our journalism in this area and working with reporters focused on it.
The mandate is to identify creative and compelling editorial approaches for paying readers, and to take an experimental approach to developing them, as we seek to define this area of our business and of our newsroom. This is a mini-startup effort within a thriving global news organization. We expect it to become the fastest-growing part of our business.
The deputy editor will bring energy and curiosity to their work, assisting the premium editor and deftly guiding reporters through every stage of the journalistic process. We are looking for someone with a deep knowledge of business news, who has top-notch packaging skills and takes delight in presenting information in intelligent and creative ways.
The successful candidate will have professional editing and reporting experience, a facility with data, an entrepreneurial approach to their work, and the ability to convey curiosity and humor in their writing. You should feel comfortable with formats other than 700-word articles (such as shorter pieces, photos, and charts) when they’re better for efficiently and effectively getting a story across. Developing fresh ways to dig up news and data and translate them into engaging articles that deliver real insights to our readers is the central challenge of the job. You will also have your own areas of intellectual and journalistic interest and write regularly, as time allows.
Experience outside the US and languages other than English are a plus.
