Job Information

Dow Jones Assistant Business Insights and Strategy Manager, Opinion in NEW YORK, New York

Job Description:

The Wall Street Journal’s Opinion section is looking for a New York-based data analyst to help deliver critical digital insights and visualizations to help guide strategy. This person will also be instrumental in the creation of new dashboards and metrics that will help with audience segmentation projects. The role provides daily research support to the team and responsibilities include daily, weekly, and quarterly data reviews of Opinion content, analysis of historical and planned articles, and collaboration with other data teams in developing audience insights.

The employee will lead Opinion’s data science strategy, making decisions to drive product strategy based upon an analysis of readership and feedback from subscribers. This role will work closely with the editorial page’s Managing Editor and will be the liaison between Opinion and senior managers in Product and Engineering who will work together on projects to implement strategic initiatives.

The Wall Street Journal has a large digital audience that is quickly growing. As we grow, we are dedicated to understanding all of our audiences and the value we provide them. The data analyst will also work with WSJ team members on our Programming and News Insights teams, which is using data science and predictive modeling to help us engage better with our audiences.

United under the banner “free markets, free people,” The Wall Street Journal Opinion section has long served as a forum for intelligent, values-driven commentary. While we aim to persuade, every word we publish is the product of rigorous reporting, research and debate. And though we uphold the same standards, we operate with complete independence from the newsroom.

The Business Insights and Strategy Manager will have:

  • Knowledge of product testing, A/B testing, and modeling needed

  • The ability to manage, organize and present data in a clear, concise and actionable format

  • Great communication skills to be able to teach editors and reporters how to use tools and think about audience data

  • The ability to turn raw data into visual insights to help support content decisions.

  • Flexible workflow and ability to manage multiple assignments in a dynamic environment

  • Creativity and strong critical thinking skills

Top candidates will have strengths in multiple areas of the following:

  • Skills appropriate for advanced visual and data journalism, including knowledge of D3 and Illustrator; command of HTML, CSS and JS

  • Knowledge of Python (preferred) or R

  • Experience working in SQL

  • Familiarity with statistical and significance tests

  • Experience with Linux and cloud-based services. Experience with Tableau or Looker is helpful but not required.

  • Knowledge of data analytics tools, including Omniture, Google Analytics, or Chartbeat

Years of experience: Entry Level or 1-2 years of experience

While you may start this job remotely, you will eventually be based in our New York office.
