LinkedIn News Editor in London, United Kingdom

Searching for your dream job? At LinkedIn, we strive to help our employees find passion and purpose. Join us in changing the way the world works.

LinkedIn is looking for a London-based journalist to help our global editorial team keep the largest group of professionals ever assembled up to speed on the news they need to know. The successful candidate will write a daily digest of business news that hundreds of thousands of professionals depend on to start their day

As part of a global Daily News team represented in London, Hong Kong and New York City you'll jump on breaking news when speed is of the essence and lean back to build and prune packages that might resonate for several news cycles. You've probably worked in a bustling newsroom — preferably business oriented — and absolutely have a nose for news. You know how to write and edit, of course. You’re just as comfortable working with data and algorithms as trusting on your gut. But you've been yearning to put those skills into a tiger-team operation where you can have real impact and build something that can scale across the world.

The position is based in London, reporting to LinkedIn’s Managing Editor, News in New York and working with teams in New York, San Francisco, Munich, São Paulo, Bangalore, Hong Kong and Sydney.

Responsibilities:

  • Write and edit a daily digest of business news;

  • Write and edit for a real-time Linkedin.com news feed;

  • Deputize for the US Editor in the UK

  • Generate analysis on what’s working and what’s not and come up with ways to increase engagement through content

Basic Qualifications:

  • 4+ years of experience in news writing and editing;

  • 2+ experience in business journalism or related coursework in business/economics;

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience with deadline pressure

  • Experience with original and curated news

  • Experience in online media
