Barron's is seeking an editor to oversee news stories, high-level enterprise and ground-breaking investigations that hold businesses, executives, big investors and regulators accountable.
This editor will lead a talented pod of reporters and should have experience managing quick-turn accountability stories off the news as well as directing major business and financial investigations.
For 100 years, Barron's has been a leader in providing smart, impactful financial analysis and has long had a history of breaking major news stories. Barron's raised questions about fraudster Bernie Madoff more than seven years before his enormous Ponzi scheme came to light, and showed how vulnerable the mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were years before their government takeover in the financial crisis.
Candidates should have strong story editing skills, have working knowledge of finance, and be a strong generator of ideas. They should also be familiar with storytelling techniques both for print magazines and digital. This person must be a good manager – that means communicating effectively, working collaboratively with reporters, other editors and visual teams, and managing the careers and stories of some of Barron’s most talented writers.
Interested parties should send a resume and cover letter to David.Cho@barrons.com and Bob.Rose@barrons.com and apply through the link on this job posting.
