This is an ideal job for an experienced, digitally savvy journalist who has strong news judgment, first-read and line editing prowess, and a knack for displaying editorial content for digital consumption with strong images and data points.
This is a chance to be part of a growing digital news and community-building platform for a niche, financial audience.
A successful candidate will thrive while working, hands-on, to grow a successful digital publication, from the launch of a new, national newsletter to the development and growth of its website.
The candidate will also work closely with breaking news reporter, legal and regulation reporter and social media editor to explore new ways to expand our audience and engage our readers.
This role requires a unique skill set that spans reporting, editing and hands-on digital display. The ideal candidate is passionate about digital and web technologies, especially email newsletters, and always seeking ways to increase their digital IQ. They are also able to develop and teach their skills to others on the team through clear communication and translating emerging technology ideas into easily understood information. This role offers a variety of challenges from reporting and analysis, so versatility, punctuality, communication, and the ability to multi-task are a must.
Remote or based in one of the Crain offices: NYC, Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland.
The newly acquired product – Green Market Report—is a digitally-focused national news and information brand focused on the business of cannabis. Before the formal relaunch of a website, Crain will launch a high-quality, nationally sponsored daily email newsletter to target audiences with the goal of building a list of quality registered users. Conversion to paid audience members will begin late in 2023.
Crain will bring its 105-year legacy as a family-owned niche business media company to offer this audience sophisticated and insightful news, analysis, data and other information important to the audiences and create networking opportunities.
It's critical that the entire team working on this product share the vision of creating a trusted resource for a niche not well-served by any journalism-focused product. The product will be a “must have,” not merely “nice to know.”
