Job Description:

The Wall Street Journal is looking for an experienced editor to run the Journal's coverage of education, from pre-K access to college and graduate school admissions.

American educators are rethinking how and what they teach as they navigate the culture wars and the learning loss many students experienced during the pandemic. This is a great opportunity for someone eager to be part of the biggest stories of the day, while striving for deeply reported narratives, investigations and enterprise journalism, including the issues shaping our next generations and the workforce of the future for a growing global audience.

We're looking for a strong, independent leader with a knack for helping reporters unearth and develop the people-driven stories that illuminate the education system. You will manage a team of reporters based in New York as well as other locations across the U.S.

The ideal candidate is an accomplished editor comfortable handling scoops, managing breaking news, editing ambitious features and coaching reporters to produce their best work.

You will:

Identify and seize storylines, guiding reporters to success and advocating for them within and beyond our organization.

  • Edit stories, ensuring they are compelling and adhere to WSJ standards.
  • Support, guide, encourage and inspire your team of reporters.
  • Pursue various forms of storytelling including visuals, podcasts, video and other digital experiences.
  • Be comfortable collaborating and coordinating with colleagues around the world.

You have:

  • A track record of identifying important stories, driving coverage and delivering scoops and enterprise in multiple formats.
  • Knowledge about the education industry and the ability to bring both business smarts and cultural acumen to the coverage.
  • High-level communication and excellent writing and editing ability.
  • Strong experience managing, developing and leading a team
  • At least 10 years of journalism experience.

The position is based in New York.

To apply, please submit a resume, a cover letter and a memo outlining how you would approach this role and examples of your work.

The Journal's reporters, editors, developers, and audio and visual journalists create important and impactful stories, firmly rooted in fact and adhering to the highest ethical standards. We report without fear or bias, and we maintain a proper sense of perspective, detachment and objectivity in our reporting.
