The Wall Street Journal is looking for a bureau chief to run its bankruptcy team, which covers some of the biggest Wall Street names and players behind hedge funds and private-equity firms focused on distressed debt and special situations.

The seven-person team breaks news and writes analysis on corporate restructuring and distress for The Wall Street Journal and its specialized bankruptcy product.

That product includes a distinct online presence, daily newsletter and related data offerings. The team also writes deeper enterprise pieces that reach a wide audience.

This is a high-profile newsroom position leading coverage of today's biggest stories in retail, energy and distressed M&A as the global pandemic and mandated closures continue to wreak havoc on businesses and the economy.

You will lead a team of reporters who are covering both ongoing bankruptcy cases and breaking news about potential filings. The team also covers companies in distress and the deal-making that often ensues.

We are looking for someone with a strong working knowledge of bankruptcy law and the various parties that shape bankruptcy proceedings, as well as a solid knowledge of corporate finance and business.

You should be a skilled editor comfortable with tight deadlines who can fashion stories for both specialist readers and more general readers.

We're looking for an experienced editor who is organized and collaborative, particularly since this group coordinates with a broad set of teams across the newsroom.

This is a management position where we expect you to lead with empathy, help your reporters produce their very best work and support your team members' career development.

You will be based in New York and report to Professional Products Editor Kimberly Johnson.

Please click 'APPLY' and upload your résumé and a cover letter explaining how you would approach the job by Oct. 30.
