Job Requirements

The Wall Street's Digital Desk is looking for an experienced news editor capable of managing the evolution of the day's biggest news stories from their earliest headlines though fully realized online packages. Accuracy, fairness and clarity are the foremost qualifications.

The right candidate must be a fast, facile line editor with strong news judgment. Story managers are responsible for editing copy for quick posting online, then aggressively working with bureau chiefs and reporters to manage future iterations of coverage.

Duties include developing richer versions of main news stories, cultivating sidebar ideas, coordinating photos, graphics and video with those respective teams and the bureaus, as well as executing the digital visual presentation of stories. Story managers are also responsible for ensuring that stories have strong search and social headlines, coordinating with the audience team where appropriate.

While daily news and enterprise assignments will play to a story manager's expertise, the position calls for deep experience with a broad swath of subjects. Special weight will be given to candidates with experience in business, finance, economics and policy. This is a digitally focused job, but newspaper editing skills are a plus as the Digital Desk works in close collaboration with the Journal's Print Desk.

Applications should include a resume and cover letter.
