WSJ seeks news editor in Hong Kong

October 29, 2014

Posted by Chris Roush

The Wall Street Journal is looking for a senior editor to handle the biggest business news stories across Asia, as well as features and developing stories of high impact.

The job will be aimed at delivering stories of global appeal, in some cases building on daily news to make exceptional stories, in other cases working with reporters to deliver features and other projects appropriate to business coverage in a digital era.

This person should have experience editing everything from big, fast-breaking news pieces to p1-style features, and the ability to take sometimes extremely raw copy, identify holes, draw out hidden potential, and turn it around – quickly if needed.

She or he should have an enthusiasm for the Asia business story and the desire to help tell the world about what’s going on in some of the fastest growing, most dynamic economies in the world – as well as the patience to work with reporters and other editors new to thinking about a broad, global readership, as well as longer-form journalism. Ideally, this person would have some experience with and literacy in corporate coverage (earnings, financial statements, boards, executives, governance).
