Job Description

CNN is seeking an experienced digital editor to join its Asia-Pacific headquarters in Hong Kong to take a leading role in helping to shape the biggest and most important stories from across the region.

This is a role for an ambitious digital editor with outstanding news judgment, excellent communication skills, and a passion for breaking news and distinctive features.

Reporting to the Director of CNN Digital Worldwide for the Asia-Pacific region, you'll work as part of a diverse, highly-collaborative team of digital journalists, deftly coordinating daily news assignments to deliver smart, accessible stories for a growing cross-platform global audience.

You'll have proven high-level editing skills and the ability to distill complex ideas, bringing a deep understanding of international affairs, as well as an eye for emerging trends.

This is a newsroom leadership role that requires calmness under pressure. As Senior Editor you will help steer the agenda during major breaking news – from terror attacks to natural disasters – responding in real-time to unexpected developments and making decisive editorial decisions.

You will have a broad digital portfolio and will be expected to move between reactive and proactive depending on the situation, executing detailed digital coverage plans around major upcoming events; taking a lead in crafting innovative distinctive features; and communicating across teams on multi-region news and investigative projects.

Though the role is primarily focused on Asia-Pacific, you will be working as part of a global 24/7 digital leadership team, providing a key editorial link between CNN's US, Europe, Middle East and Africa operations, and deputizing for the regional Digital Director when needed.

You'll need to have:
• A minimum of 8 years of editing experience on leading digital publications
• A proven track record of editing major breaking news; superior news judgment; and the ability to deliver in a highly pressurized, deadline driven environment
• Exceptional planning and organizational skills with a demonstrable track record of executing detailed digital coverage plans
• Experience conceiving and producing long-form distinctive features and/or investigative works
• Experience in managing others, setting editorial priorities and coordinating between teams and across time zones
• Understanding of how to drive regional and global digital audience growth
• A passion for news and a deep knowledge of international affairs
• College degree or equivalent industry experience
• Perfect grasp of written and spoken English
• Enthusiasm, flexibility and a desire to foster a collaborative and inclusive work environment
