Business Insider is hiring an associate editor to work on our Strategy desk, where you'll report to the Careers & Strategy editor & help oversee a team of full-time reporters & fellows.

The mission of our desk is to cover the (often complicated) story of success. We survey the playing field of opportunity, stalk through the halls of power & wealth, & ultimately equip readers to do great things.

As an associate editor, you'll review a mix of stories ranging from quick news hits to sponsored posts, longer features, & exclusive content for our Prime paywall readership. Beats you'd help the Careers & Strategy editor manage will include career advice, Q&As with titans of tech, lists & rankings, profiles of small businesses, entrepreneurship guides, & analyses of some of the biggest news in the business world.

This role will include careful line-readings of stories produced by a growing team of reporters at varying levels of seniority - meaning the ideal candidate will know how to handle conversations with both industry vets, entry-level reporters, & members of our early-career fellowship program.

Besides being an accessible leader with a deft human touch, you should also be:

  • A strong ideator who can come up with great pitches for others on the team to pursue.

  • A born storyteller with precise news judgment - not only do you know what works, you know why it works.

  • An eagle-eyed grammar whiz who can mold story structure & flow while weeding out typos & factual mistakes.

  • A headline pro who can catch a reader's attention from a title's first words (and who knows what image pairs best with a winning headline).

  • Someone who can harness the power of metrics (think Google Analytics & Chartbeat) to lead the team to success.

  • A natural project manager who can keep track of a team's multiple assignments & schedules, & instinctively know what should be prioritized on hectic news days.

  • A thoughtful communicator who can coordinate coverage up, down, & across newsroom hierarchies.

You should have 2-4 years of editorial experience, preferably in a fast-paced digital newsroom (bonus points for business publications). A copyediting background & Photoshop chops are also a plus, but not required.

Created for the digital generation, Business Insider is the largest business news site in the U.S. & one of the fastest-growing news brands in the world. We embrace the themes of positive change & innovation & use fast, fun, & informative storytelling to cover the business, tech, & finance news stories you need to know to work, play & live better.

The position is full-time in our New York City headquarters. Insider offers competitive compensation packages complete with benefits. If this sounds like your dream job, apply here with your resume & a cover letter explaining why you want to be our new associate editor.
