The Wall Street Journal

Social Media Editor
The Wall Street Journal is looking for a Social Media Editor who will focus on evening or weekend audiences. You will have a passion for social storytelling and ensure that breaking news, features and exclusives are delivered effectively across social channels while endeavoring to amplify these stories in novel ways. You will help define the WSJ’s social voice and sensibility, while coordinating coverage — from political news and disasters to market-moving reports and scoops — across these channels. You should be comfortable publishing to an audience of millions that includes both longtime readers and those encountering the Journal for the first time. You should have broad knowledge of social-media platforms, with a particular focus on Facebook and Twitter, and a knack for finding ways to optimize content off-platform in the moments between intense news cycles. You will work closely with mobile and homepage editors to create strong, clear and accurate language in social posts. You will also collaborate with senior coverage editors and audience editors to craft off-platform plans for our journalism and shepherd stories from concept to final execution.
