The Opportunity...
The Sr. Editor, Data Journalism will lead consumer research initiatives across several of our owned-and-operated B2C web properties.

How You'll Contribute...

    • Come up with new research concepts for B2C brands, based on industry gaps and opportunities with the current news cycle. 
    • Own and preserve the narrative from conceptualization through the content development lifecycle. Guide and mentor data analysts, writers, designers, and developers on what the end product should look like.

    • Indirect people management (on a project level). Depending on performance and company growth, this role would likely have multiple direct reports (full-time and freelance). 

What We're Looking For...

    • You have a background in data, working with diverse research methodologies like survey development and government data set analysis
    • 3+ years leading teams on a project level
    • Proven ability to think strategically, yet highly comfortable getting in the weeds as needed
    • Exceptional storyteller with excellent communication skills, specifically with communicating research ideas & direction to cross-functional team members
    • High attention to detail with the ability to edit spelling, grammar, and visuals (charts/graphs)
    • You’re a problem solver who takes risks and makes decisions quickly, while managing a ton of moving parts. 
    • You’re obsessed with maintaining high standards of quality and meeting the needs of our “customers” (consumers and journalists)

    • B2B experience is a plus
    • Foundational knowledge of SEO
    • Experience leading a team of direct reports
