The Wall Street Journal is looking for a producer to join our New Formats team within the newsroom's Strategy unit. You will experiment with story forms, including those created for email, text messaging, calendars, slide decks, e-books and proprietary formats on our platforms, carry out original reporting and curation on a wide range of topics, and partner with other Journal reporters and coverage teams to unlock opportunities to provide value to our growing audiences.
You should be well-versed in the news of the day; have a knack for conversational, concise writing; be organized and data literate, with a sense for the topics that interest the Journal's audiences, current and future. Assignments could range from creating a series of visually appealing and data-rich slide decks, to curating a seasonal collection of stories, to curating a calendar of good reads, to gathering string for an e-book. We value collaboration and creativity, and are focused on leaving our audiences smarter and smiling.
It's essential to have an enthusiasm for news and the public mission of journalism. The Journal is the most trusted news outlet in the country, and is expanding its appeal among new audiences. Solid reporting experience, story judgment and journalism ethics are a must. Beyond that, we'd like people who are excited to think about content differently, moving away from simply viewing things as news stories that are tied to particular days and instead toward content that is purposefully useful to our audience and longer-lasting.
The position will be based in our New York City office and report to the New Formats Editor.
