Details
The Wall Street Journal is looking for an experienced editor to join our Standards and Ethics department. The candidate should have a demonstrated expertise and insight in setting and maintaining reporting and style standards. For this role, we also are seeking an editor to help focus on matters of race and identity.

As a member of the Standards and Ethics team, you will be responsible for ensuring the Journal always maintains the highest and most rigorous standards of fairness and integrity and is a model for ethical, fact-based news reporting. Standards is an integral part of the Journal newsroom, acting as the collective conscience of its members, and a central reason we have been so trusted by readers for more than 130 years.

You will be versed in, and a strong advocate for, these standards and ethics. You will have more than a decade of journalistic experience, allowing you to act as an arbiter, and champion, of our journalism. You will be a final reader on our most impactful journalism; ensure our work and staff remain untainted by conflicts of interest, real or perceived; and act as an adjudicator of disputes. As a standards editor, you will help guide our newsroom staff as they navigate the complexities of their rapidly changing jobs. Most importantly, you are a protector of readers' interests.
