Wall Street Journal seeks culturally curious editor to join its live journalism team
The Wall Street Journal is seeking a news minded, culturally curious, entrepreneurial editor to join its live journalism team. This editor will own and shape forums like WSJ Tech D.Live, CEO Council and the Future of Everything Festival and help develop new news-driven events.
Journal events gather top leaders and thinkers and make news. This new hire will work with the Journal’s editor of live journalism to drive, develop and distinguish Journal events from the rest. You will work on ways to extend our events–from creating stories ahead of a conference to identifying new ideas or demos to present to the Journal’s audience.
This editor will develop content and visuals for conversations that take place onstage, and will also build, own and manage relationships with business, culture, social and political leaders featured at Journal gatherings. And, you’ll work on event strategy: the people, themes and topics presented and how to continue the conversation post-event.
The position, which is based in New York, requires creativity and organization in equal measure.
