The New York Times seeks a deputy finance editor

February 16, 2023

Posted by Mariam Ahmed

The New York Times is looking for an experienced editor to join our finance team. This editor would work closely with the finance editor to help edit, polish and elevate coverage of the biggest financial news of the day and explain its impact on our lives.

The scope of finance coverage at The Times is wide, and includes news and features about big Wall Street banks, giant investment funds and billionaire investors, as well as white collar crime, retail traders, consumer finances and the stock market. The subject matter is often complicated, and a key part of the job is translating complex financial or legal concepts — often on deadline — into language that is simple and accessible to a broad general readership.

The ideal candidate would have a passion for financial news and be comfortable juggling story edits in multiple formats, from breaking news and short items for our live briefings to longer-form features and enterprise stories. The deputy editor would report to the finance editor and help manage a team of around seven reporters. A collaborative, enthusiastic team spirit is essential, as is the desire to bring scrutiny to a powerful industry.

Candidates must have at least five years of experience assigning and editing stories, as well as managing reporters. To apply, please submit 3-5 samples of stories or projects you have edited, and note your role in editing and shaping the work.

The position is based in New York.

The annual base pay range for this role is between $115,506.56 and $150,000.00.
