Desk Editor & Deputy Desk Editor, North America
You will be part of Americas team, remotely coordinating a mixture of English-language news and longer-form content across your desk. We’re looking for experienced journalists with knowledge of financial markets, investing and general business coverage. An interest in cryptocurrencies is also highly desirable. The two positions run the Americas Desk across six time zones (including Canada and Brazil), covering for each other when required, and sharing responsibilities over the course of a day to ensure appropriate and always up-to-date markets and business coverage from New York to Silicon Valley. This includes planning editorial coverage and maintaining appropriate staffing levels while ensuring all content adheres to quality standards and is in line with the site’s editorial strategy. You will be the news editor in your time zone/region, starting before the markets open in New York and ending the day on the West Coast, handing over to colleagues in Asia.
