Deputy Editor, Conferences & Events

Job Description:

The Wall Street Journal is seeking an editor to join the team building its “live journalism” through conferences, events and interactive video. Journalists across our newsroom use events as an extension of their digital and traditional storytelling. This editor will help conceive and shape the content we create for live events — a critically important way WSJ journalists connect with readers, sources and a broader audience. This editor will interact with newsroom and commercial colleagues, utilizing a keen news sense and rigorous attention to detail. He or she will be involved from conception, logistics planning and audience outreach; to event-day support, social-media publishing and follow-up communications. This editor also will contribute to projects associated with specialized news services for WSJ. The ideal candidate will have a significant background in reporting or editing and a passion for exploring the digital transformation of the news business.

Applications should include a resume and cover letter.
