The Washington Post is seeking an accomplished, ambitious and innovative journalist to become its next Business editor. The successful candidate will oversee the expansion of our coverage of technology, promote continuing excellence in revealing the political machinations that influence economic policy, and foster high achievement across a panoply of beats in this dynamic and growing department. The Business editor’s portfolio demands dexterity. Our breaking-news team covers economic and business developments early and often, our accountability reporters undertake high-stakes investigations, and our columnists mix passion and expertise in analyzing who wins and who loses in an economy increasingly defined by gaping inequalities. The staff, which this year will number more than 60 journalists, also includes beat reporters covering topics as different as the commercial space industry, race and the economy, and the business of food. Their leader must embrace variety and the challenge of making complex subjects accessible to readers.
