Job Description:

The Wall Street Journal is looking for a journalist who can combine editorial and product thinking to tear up old story formats and try new ones with an eye toward what's most useful to our audience. The New Formats editor will lead a team including newsletter writers and editors and a structured data expert who creates special projects around annual rankings.

We're looking for someone who has experience successfully producing compelling digital content that attracts an audience and encourages engagement and subscription conversion.
