The Wall Street Journal

Rankings Editor
The Wall Street Journal is looking for an editor to lead our rankings and lists, an important and growing initiative for the Journal that already provides invaluable service to a large audience through original research and data analysis. Our annual College Ranking is authoritative and widely relied upon by parents and students. Others, like our airport , housing and management rankings, are perennial engagement drivers. You will help us develop and launch new rankings and lists, lead the production and growth of ongoing rankings projects across platforms and evaluate strategic partnerships, tools and methodologies around structured data. We're looking for someone with strong data analysis skills; a good sense of topics that interest the Journal’s audiences, current and future; strong project management skills; and a good sense of design of user-centric tools and content. We value collaboration and creativity, and are focused on leaving our audiences smarter and smiling. You will be part of the New Formats team, which develops novel approaches to bring our journalism to new readers and deepen our relationship with our existing audience. You will work closely with reporters and editors across the newsroom who have expertise in various rankings areas as well as the Journal’s visuals, product, design and engineering departments. You will be part of a creative group of storytellers who prioritize audience engagement in their work.
