BuzzFeed News is looking for a brilliant, bold, boundlessly ambitious editor to be the deputy of our 20-person investigations team. 

This is a leadership role with a big mandate: to inspire our award-winning investigative team; to guide reporters toward the most important investigations and the most daunting targets; to oversee reporting with the most exacting standards and to shape it into un-put-downable stories; and to push and push for maximum impact.

Working with the global investigations editor, you would help set the direction for a team with the highest goals — and the mandate and resources to pursue them to the limits. 

We are looking for a proven track record in investigations, including:

  • publishing major investigative stories that have changed laws, shut down companies or had other meaningful real-world impact. 
  • impeccable news, legal, and ethical sense and impeccable standards for reporting depth, detail, rigor, and fairness.
  • experience managing complex projects, sometimes over long periods, and steering talented and tireless reporters to do their best work. 
  • a superb sense of how to shape clear, powerful findings and compelling, well-paced narrative so that stories hit with maximum velocity. 
  • a passion for using a new media ecosystem to pursue the timeless goal of holding power accountable. 
  • a talent for teamwork in an atmosphere of mutual respect, optimism and fun.
