Job Description

The Wall Street Journal is looking for a senior video journalist to join our news and specials unit as part of a breaking news team. Video journalists in this group produce topical and timely news-focused videos.

Top candidates for this position will have a professional background in video journalism, demonstrate exceptional shooting and editing skills, and have experience with graphics. In this role you will juggle many tasks and cover the day's news events across a variety of subjects. Adding depth and context to a story and bringing challenging topics to life visually under deadline pressure is a crucial part of this job. Please note, this is not an entry-level position and it is not a position producing documentaries. Because this is a role focused on producing timely news coverage, you need to show successful projects that have been done in just a few hours and stand out in the 24/7 information cycle.

You will report to the Senior Supervising Producer on the News & Specials team. You will start this job remotely but will eventually be based in our New York office.

To apply, please submit a cover letter outlining how your skills and experience meet or exceed the key candidate requirements, along with links to five videos that represent the type of work described.

  • Research, write and produce timely news coverage and topical analysis on a daily basis

  • Work with editorial leaders in all coverage areas to ensure that The Journal's deep reporting and expert analysis is reflected in every video

  • Coach beat reporters and news editors in person and remotely to appear on camera or in voiceover

  • Ensure that all journalistic and legal standards are followed

  • Work late hours and weekends as part of a regular rotation and as political events and news developments may warrant

  • Monitor feeds and breaking news events

  • Complete additional responsibilities as assigned

You Have:

  • At least five years' experience working in a daily news environment

  • Experience producing compelling business, tech, politics and general news videos under tight deadline constraints

  • Knowledge of current events, U.S. politics, economics, and a nose for news

  • Professional experience writing scripts for news stories under tight time constraints
