Quartz seeks deputy news editor for finance/technology
Quartz seeks a Deputy News Editor to work closely with its finance and technology reporting groups on producing creative, high-quality journalism.
You would edit much of the copy produced by the roughly 10 journalists covering these areas for Quartz. You would work closely with the player/coach editors for those two areas on coordinating coverage, assigning stories, and supporting reporters from the beginning through the end of the process.
The Deputy News Editor is also part of a broader team of Quartz editors sharing responsibility for coverage and editing articles before they’re published, and could be called on to help edit stories and guide reporting in other areas as well. You would have extensive opportunities to contribute to the shaping of Quartz’s efforts to be a new kind of business news organization.
The ideal candidate has deep experience with coverage of business, finance, economics, markets, management, technology, and science. They also:
- Thrive in a high-paced newsroom
- Edit quickly and thoughtfully
- Know digital publishing tactics and strategies, including social media
- Overflow with ideas for topics and creative approaches to them
- Speak multiple languages
- Handle data with sophistication
- Work selflessly as part of a team
To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, and five links to relevant work that you produced yourself or played a lead role in editing. The links matter most.
