Quartz seeks a deputy editor to help produce its global coverage of finance and economics with bracing creativity and ambition. The deputy editor will bring energy and curiosity to their work, assisting the finance editor and deftly guiding reporters through every stage of the journalistic process.
We are looking for someone with professional editing and reporting experience, a facility with data, an entrepreneurial approach to their work, and the ability to convey curiosity and humor in their writing. You should feel comfortable with formats other than 700-word articles (such as shorter pieces, photos, and charts) when they’re better for efficiently and effectively getting a story across. Developing fresh ways to dig up news and data and quickly translate them into engaging articles that deliver real insights to our readers is the central challenge of the job.
Specifically, this editor will edit daily stories as well as email products, including one that is currently in development. You will also have your own areas of intellectual and journalistic interest and write regularly, as time allows.
The successful candidate will demonstrate an understanding of the fundamental underpinnings of the banking and finance industries, and how that drives their evolution and growth. You should have a firm grasp of the cryptocurrency industry in particular, and how it relates to (or replaces) traditional financial practices. The deputy editor might edit stories on everything from cross-border arbitrage to hacked funds stolen from an exchange to a profile of a known personality in the crypto world.
International experience and languages are a plus.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, and five links to relevant work. The links matter most.
Quartz looks for two “pillar gifts” in its candidates. In all of us, these are more aspirational than actual, but they are central in our intentions.
