Deputy Verticals Editor

The Role:

Protocol is seeking an editor to help lead three of our verticals, focused on enterprise computing, fintech and the workplace.

We're looking for an editor who will work across three of the hugely important topics that currently form a core part of Protcol's journalism, helping the editors of each vertical to manage the flow of copy.

The strongest candidates will be happy writing social headlines, reshaping ledes, pushing reporters for better kickers and wrangling our CMS to their will. And they will feel comfortable switching topics at a moment's notice, from fierce competition in the database market to crypto policy to the latest DEI revelation coming out of Big Tech.

Our ideal candidates will have demonstrable experience editing tech or business coverage, the ability to help reporters sharpen story ideas, excellent line editing skills and a track record of successfully aiming coverage at a specific audience of readers.

Location: We prefer candidates in the San Francisco, New York and Washington, D.C. areas but are open to other locations as well.

Apply: To apply, send a cover letter and resume, with Deputy Verticals Editor in the subject line, to
