WSJ seeks deputy editor for investing
The Wall Street Journal is seeking a deputy bureau chief to help run its Investing team in New York.
The ideal candidate must wield all of the journalism skills needed to deliver breakthrough work on the most important financial themes in America today. This editor will set coverage priorities, sharpen story ideas and work with reporters to find the most important sources in their beat… and get them to talk to us. In the past few years, the Investing team has led series on the rise of the passive investing kingpins, the remaking of financial markets by quants and took on the country’s retirement burdens in Unprepared. The deputy editor will also have to be nimble as breaking news is a regular development in investing. During hurricane season, for example, the team’s insurance reporters cover every development from the first warning to the final cleanup.
The Investing team includes reporters who cover insurance, hedge funds, asset management, pensions, Berkshire Hathaway and taxes. The right candidate will help bring these coverage areas to life, often showing how these large financial beats impact the daily lives of people around the world. This editor will elevate our story generation, reporting and writing, while helping organize enterprising visual storytelling through charts, photos, video and other tools.
This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced reporter looking to branch into editing, as well as journalists with an editing background.
This editor will report to the Journal’s Investing Bureau Chief.
