Job Description:

The Wall Street Journal is looking for a coordinating producer to oversee news coverage as part of its global video team. Excellent editorial, production and team-management skills are key for this position. While you will help manage a small domestic team, this is a hands-on role. We are seeking a strong editorial leader with a track record of producing timely business and markets news, political and industry analysis, and feature coverage that stands out in the 24/7 information cycle.

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
  • Coach beat reporters and news editors to appear on camera or in voiceover
  • Research, write and produce coverage as necessary
  • Provide clear and productive notes on scripts and videos in edit
  • Mentor staff and provide opportunities for feedback and growth
  • Ensure that all journalistic and legal standards are followed
  • Be able to work late hours and weekends as news developments and time zone considerations may warrant

You have:
  • At least eight years' experience working in a daily, video news environment
  • Experience producing compelling business, tech and political coverage under tight deadline constraints
  • A track record of translating complex business and economics stories into reporting that informs WSJ's core subscriber base and appeals to broader audiences
