The Wall Street Journal

Platform Editor, Nights
The Wall Street Journal is looking for an editor to curate our native platforms— and the WSJ app—and to enhance the digital experience for our audience, with a focus on evening and weekend consumers. You will work evening hours Tuesday-Saturday. You will set lineups and package stories, using news judgment, knowledge of audience data and awareness of the WSJ brand to make programming decisions. You will help execute the team's alert strategy and take a hands-on approach in crafting language for push notifications and email alerts. Platform editors demonstrate sharp writing and strong editing skills, with the ability to balance the needs of breaking news and enterprise journalism with our subscribers in mind. The role requires speed and proficiency with digital publishing tools and a strong command of newsroom workflows. We're looking for someone who will be an advocate for the needs of our native platforms with coverage chiefs and an evangelist for digital storytelling in the newsroom. You will be a key voice in product initiatives for digital platforms and editorial tools. You will start this job remotely but eventually will be based in our New York office. You will report to the On-Platform Editor.
