Job Description

The Washington Post is looking for a nimble, globally focused journalist to edit, curate and help write Today's WorldView, the newsletter anchored by Ishaan Tharoor that illuminates the intersection between Washington and the world.

This five-day-a-week newsletter distills what matters most into provocative analysis and sharply written summaries of global news and opinion. This is one of The Post's marquee newsletters, aimed at connecting with a rapidly growing international audience and drawing enormous readership from across the United States and around the world.

The editor's primary responsibility will be to deliver consistent excellence in making Today's WorldView an engaging, must-read arrival in someone's inbox. This requires strong editing, production and factchecking skills as well as the ability to crisply summarize stories from The Post and other publications that drive the global conversation. The editor serves as a key liaison to our photo, graphics and newsletter teams, and sometimes steps in to write the newsletter's main essay.

The editor will work a Sunday-to-Thursday schedule, usually from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Eastern time. Although the newsletter will be the principal responsibility, the editor may be called on to help report or edit breaking news during the early hours of some shifts.

Any candidate should have at least three years of professional experience in reporting or editing and a passion for global affairs. The most qualified candidates will have significant experience in writing or editing international news. Foreign language skills and facility with visual storytelling skills are highly desired but not required.

The Post strives to provide its readers with high-quality, trustworthy news and information while constantly innovating. That mission is best served by a diverse, multi-generational workforce with varied life experiences and perspectives. All cultures and backgrounds are welcomed.

Candidates should upload a résumé, cover letter and three clips (as PDFs) to our jobs portal by Mar. 5. All application materials can be uploaded to the same field. The cover letter should be addressed to Foreign Editor Douglas Jehl, Deputy Foreign Editor Eva Rodriguez, Foreign assignment editor Ben Soloway, and Managing Editors and Tracy Grant and Krissah Thompson.
