Morning Brew is a media company that covers the business news and narratives shaping our world. The companies, the people, the workplace, the economy — we nerd out on this stuff, and we’re dedicated to helping our audience navigate it all in a way that informs and entertains.

The Morning Brew team is clever, creative, and growing fast. Want in? Read on.

Overview
Morning Brew seeks an energetic and enthusiastic editor to launch a forthcoming newsletter focused on crypto—both the digital currencies as well as the related concepts that decentralized blockchains enable. 

Morning Brew subscribers are twice as likely as the average American to hold crypto investments, yet one in two say they feel less knowledgeable than their peers about crypto, even as they believe the asset class will outperform others in the long term.

Our crypto newsletter aims to close that gap by serving as a resource for enthusiasts—the people who are into crypto, but not, you know, into crypto. It will offer readers news, context, and understanding about leading and rising assets as well as the rapidly expanding Web3 world around them, including DAOs, NFTs, and DeFi.

If you’re interested in running stories about crypto for the most obsessive early adopters, this isn’t the job for you. But if you delight in going down that rabbit hole—and yes, we want you to be willing to buy on an exchange, create a crypto wallet, mint an NFT, etc. in pursuit of knowledge—only to emerge and explain (with disclosures!) how it matters to people who are enthusiastic but not quite experts, this is where it’s at.

This role will be instrumental in the development and execution of stories, series, and editorial packages both within and beyond the newsletter.

The ideal candidate is passionate about how the burgeoning crypto category affects the everyperson. You should be able to look at copy about head-spinning topics and make that complexity accessible to our readers. You’ll work with our writers to encourage precision, clarity, accuracy, and a strong, memorable voice. We aim to never be boring or stuffy—no small task for a topic like this.

This job will require you to work cross-functionally with copy editors, fact-checkers, designers, growth and social leads, and engineers. Being a team player and getting along with peers is essential. You should also be flexible: We’re in high-growth mode at Morning Brew and a game-for-anything attitude is a must.

Candidates with experience editing news or reportage about crypto are strongly preferred. Have you been an active participant and actually withdrawn crypto from an exchange to a personal wallet to spend on, say, an NFT? Even better.

And if you're worried about Morning Brew's commitment to crypto in light of the latest market drop, to (grossly mis)quote Hamilton: 'Oceans rise, crypto markets fall, we will see each other through it all!'

Morning Brew is based in New York City but this role is remote-friendly for all candidates.
What else are we looking for?
Character and integrity rank pretty high on the list. Our team is guided by our core values:

How We Treat Each Other:
Respectful Candor  -- We believe that engaging in timely, constructive, and open discourse is an act of respect that makes for a more transparent and productive work environment.
Empathy -- We establish a strong partnership of trust with our co-workers and partners. We build human connections in order to understand each other.
Inclusivity -- We strive to celebrate and welcome people of diverse backgrounds and cultures. Differing perspectives help us make better decisions and have more fulfilling experiences.

How We Treat Our Work: 
Curiosity -- We learn every day through deliberate inquiry and exploration. We re-examine assumptions to be a better company, offer better products, and become better colleagues.
Accountability -- We celebrate our successes and own our failures. Taking responsibility for our actions allows us to learn from our experiences.
Bias Toward Action -- We know speed matters in business so we embrace quick and calculated risk-taking. We understand that many actions are reversible and therefore we are solutions-oriented, even when facing obstacles and challenges.
Challenger Mentality -- We don’t allow ourselves to be comfortable with our success. We are hungry to become the best and create more value for our audience.
Clarity of Purpose -- We understand the “why” in our work, which helps us to operate at our highest level of performance and efficiency.
