Editor - Live Journalism, The Wall Street Journal - NY
The Wall Street Journal is seeking a news minded, culturally curious, entrepreneurial editor to join our Live Journalism team.
This editor will own and shape forums like WSJ Tech D.Live, CEO Council and the Future of Everything Festival and help develop new news-driven events.
Journal events gather top leaders and thinkers and make news. You will work with our editor of live journalism to drive, develop and distinguish Journal events from the rest.
You will work on ways to extend our events-from creating stories ahead of a conference to identifying new ideas or demos to present to our audience. This role will be key to agenda development.
This editor will develop content and visuals for conversations that take place onstage, and will also build, own and manage relationships with business, culture, social and political leaders featured at Journal gatherings. And, you'll work on event strategy: the people, themes and topics we present, and how to continue the conversation post-event.
This position requires creativity and organization in equal measure.
Other qualifications for the job include:
- A background and/or interest in editorial content and not traditional event management.
- The ability to keep calm and carry on: Events have many moving components. Can you keep your cool juggling the various details?
- An in-depth knowledge of business, culture and finance.
- A love of research and reporting: What's something our audience hasn't heard or seen before?
- Superior writing and editing skills.
- Bonus points if you have worked in events beforehand and know how they work.
This position is based in our New York City office.
