Role: News Desk Manager
Our Company: The Tokenist is a leading source of world-class financial media. We deliver content ranging from educational personal finance guides to breaking news stories that cover the emerging decentralized finance industry, FinTech, and the world’s traditional financial and banking system. With a 100/100 Newsguard rating, we pride ourselves on delivering trustworthy, timely, and informative news articles.
Our Team: Our team includes managers and reporters who reside across the globe. This allows us to cover breaking events at any given time and also brings a diverse perspective to our news desk. As the manager of our global news desk, you will collaborate with other members who reside in various time zones. These members are committed to accuracy, punctuality, and relevancy, as you will be as well.
The Impact: This role will require shaping our editorial strategy by researching and assigning unique story ideas and ensuring the delivery of insightful, informative, and well-researched news articles. We have developed a number of processes to help aid in delivering such results.
You will create short briefs and assign them to reporters. The briefs should generally include an original source of the news (if applicable), and will ultimately aim to create compelling content which will drive engagement with our platform. You will also track the performance of these stories, measure their engagement, and incorporate this information into future editing and reporting decisions.
Our news articles largely cover the integration of the world’s traditional financial system with that of emerging technology. In effect, this means the topic of news articles are largely case-by-case, but can include digital assets, FinTech, and even the movement led by retail traders in the GME / AMC scene. Familiarity with these different environments, along with a constant awareness of new developments within them, is required.
