The Wall Street Journal is seeking an experienced and expert journalist for a franchise job: Editor of Heard on the Street. Heard, of course, is the Journal's home for financial analysis and commentary. It is a fiefdom unto itself with a distinctive tone, style and approach. Yet it is also the analytical brain of the Journal's core coverage.
The editor will help drive an expansion of Heard on the Street to include more coverage areas, more ambitious visuals and more deeply reported columns and series.
Heard has maintained its sharp sensibility over the years, but it frames that sensibility in new ways all the time. Take the fantastic Saturday Heards, which are big and beautifully illustrated. Take the Heard's run of smart series. Or the online stock-picking conference. Or videos, or conference calls.
We are looking for a Heard editor who can manage a large team of writers in four locations around the globe. We need a bright mind who understands the corporate world and the financial markets. We need a thinker who can take a point of view. We need an editor who can juggle the demands of a high-output section. And we need an innovator who can help take it to new places.
The position is based in New York and reports to Financial Editor Charles Forelle.
