October 12, 2020

Posted by Chris Roush

Quartz seeks a deputy email editor in the U.S. to write and edit our Daily Brief email, homepage, and app notifications, and to assist with the editing and production of other email projects. This role requires a Sunday to Thursday schedule, and is particularly well-suited to candidates who are deadline-focused, excited about the news, and enjoy bringing a little levity to their work, especially in the form of haiku.

The successful candidate will have stellar news judgment, with an eye for stories about business and the global economy that drive conversation. They will have experience monitoring and curating news across an array of websites and social networks, and a knack for writing pithy, informative notifications and summaries.

This role rewards candidates who are highly collaborative and able to coordinate across editorial and product teams. They should be adept at managing their time, communicating in real time, paying attention to detail, testing and aiding in the development of new products, thinking strategically, responding to breaking news, distilling and assembling stories in creative ways, and developing good relationships with a broad cross section of newsroom colleagues.

The deputy email editor will report to the email editor, and work with a tightly knit team that relies strongly on excellent communication to manage multiple deadlines per day. All locations will be considered. (Quartz is currently all-remote, which means you would be onboarding in a remote environment.)

  • Workday hours would be 9am – 5pm PST
  • Remote work is available
  • Experience writing email newsletters a must
  • Experience navigating WordPress and SendGrid preferred
  • Seven years or more of experience in a newsroom
  • Proficiency in business news and/or Asia news is a big plus.
  • Subject to writing test.

To apply, please submit a cover letter telling us more about your approach to email newsletters, your resume, and five links to relevant work.
