The Wall Street Journal is looking for a coordinating producer to oversee news coverage as part of its global video team.

You will report to the senior executive producer of news and specials. You likely will start this job remotely but will eventually be based in our New York office.
- Manage a small team of video journalists to produce news, analysis and topical videos of interest to The Wall Street Journal audience
- Work closely with video journalists to hone story angles, strengthen scripts and ensure videos maintain highest production value
- Propose new and original story ideas for timely news coverage on a daily basis
- Collaborate with key newsroom editors, overseas video leaders and producers to develop best-in-class video journalism
