The Wall Street Journal

Deputy Editor, Live Journalism
The Wall Street Journal is looking for a news-savvy, culturally curious, entrepreneurial senior editor to join the newsroom team responsible for our live journalism and events. This editor will own and shape events such as the WSJ Jobs Summit and Women in the Workplace, while playing a critical role in defining new franchises that serve our readers and drive new memberships to the Journal.

This is a period of growth and transformation for WSJ events, as the team has moved from producing in-person conferences and festivals to, in the current environment, a full calendar of virtual events. This editor, working with the head of live journalism and special content, will help shape our approach in this new digital medium: specifically how we plan, program and, most importantly, cover our live events across the Journal’s platforms.

We're looking for someone with a background working on the newsroom side of top tier events and a track record of getting things done with an emphasis on originality and exclusivity. You will have a network that spans industries and continents, an eye for new thinkers and leaders, deep knowledge of the current competitive landscape, and a sense for the topics people care about now and in the future.
