Copy Editor, MarketWatch
Position Description: MarketWatch, an award-winning financial-news site that’s part of The Wall Street Journal Digital Network, seeks an experienced, detail-oriented, Web-savvy copy editor. This editor, based in New York, should have a nose for general news and a working knowledge of markets and finance. The successful candidate should be a team player willing to pitch in as needed in a variety of roles.
He or she should be adept at editing features, commentaries and breaking-news stories; writing compelling and traffic-generating headlines; and recognizing, and taking action on, social-media trends. While traditional text-editing skill is paramount to success in this position, candidates who demonstrate in-depth knowledge of social-media tools and platforms, a facility for blogging or blog management, experience in online news design and presentation, or strong reporting and writing backgrounds will receive strong consideration. Some experience in radio or video, on either side of the microphone or camera, would be a plus
