Job Description:

Barron's is searching for an editor to lead its coverage of crypto currencies, fintech and other major market topics.

This person should have a deep understanding of these subjects and be a continual source of story ideas off the news -- and also drive coverage that helps set agendas within business journalism. This editor needs to be good with copy and have an eye for how to push stories to reach new heights. At the same time, we are seeking a journalist who understands the joys -- and challenges -- that come with getting the most out of talented and ambitious reporters.

Successful candidates should be able to direct a team of reporters to pursue targets digitally and in our magazine. Experience working in a newsroom is required, as is working collaboratively with colleagues and editors.

Interested candidates can send a resume, no more than three clips in PDF form and a cover letter to David Cho or Bob Rose or apply through the link provided.

Responsibilities include:
  • Experience producing content for a sophisticated audience and at least 7 years working in a newsroom.
  • Proven ability to make deadline and re-write copy accurately and cleanly.
  • Background in managing and defining coverage strategies for a team of reporters.
  • Interest and understanding of the financial and investing world, as well as familiarity with corporate balance sheets and company valuations.
