Quartz seeks an editor to lead its editorial lineup for members, taking an entrepreneurial approach to defining our journalism in this area.
The mandate is to identify creative and compelling editorial approaches for paying readers. We view this as a core expansion pillar for Quartz and are looking for this editor to take an experimental approach to further define this area of our business and of our newsroom. This is a mini-startup effort within a thriving global news organization. We expect it to become the fastest-growing part of our business.
We’re looking for someone who’s highly energized by the challenge of figuring this out, who understands how reader analytics can support this task, who relishes creating systems and processes from the ground up, and who’s excited by the opportunity to collaborate closely with Quartz’s global newsroom and world-class product team.
At the end of the day, the membership editor’s core job is to come up with ideas for high-value journalism and work with Quartz’s talented journalists to produce them. In addition to access to all of Quartz’s journalism, we already offer our members in-depth reports on changes in the global economy plus premium videos that connect the dots on seemingly disparate global phenomena. This editor’s mandate is to build on that, and to be creative about the formats and approaches that will lead to content that business professionals around the world will want to consume. This role also includes extensive opportunities for live and online events moderation designed to make the membership community vibrant.
We'd look to you to pursue topics and formats that attract and help retain paying users. The ideal candidate will have a deep knowledge of business news and at least five years’ professional editing and reporting experience. This editor needs to have a facility with data, an enthusiasm for presenting information in creative, nontraditional formats, an entrepreneurial approach to their work, excellent communication, collaboration, and planning skills, and the ability to convey curiosity and humor in their writing.
Experience outside the US and languages other than English are a plus. To apply, please submit a resume and five links to relevant work you’ve had a hand in.
