*Work from anywhere on the planet! Our HQ is in London but have teams working remotely all over the world.*

Finixio is seeking a talented and experienced Chief News Editor to join our team and contribute to our goal of creating the most informative sites in this vertical.

Our sites – Techopedia.com, Business2Community.com & Cryptonews.com – boast some of the best search rankings in the industry (5+ million visits monthly), competing with many mainstream sites, such as forbes.com. We focus on growth, and giving our audience trustworthy, reliable and informative content, with an emphasis on breaking news, engaging with industry thought leaders and leading the news agenda.

If you are knowledgeable about fintech, cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology, and the rapidly evolving world of decentralised finance (DeFi); have a passion for breaking news and delivering engaging stories that capture the attention of readers – you are most certainly in the right place.

As our Chief News Editor, you’ll be covering breaking news, market trends, and emerging technologies, while working closely with our editorial team to ensure all content is accurate, timely, and meets editorial standards. You will be responsible for creating and publishing original news content related to business, fintech and crypto on our biggest and best brands.

We especially are looking for someone who can demonstrate a depth of experience in both building and managing news teams. You will have an eye for detail but also an ability to strategize and implement solutions as required as you monitor the sites’ key performance indicators.

Integrating multimedia and social channels into our news operations is an important part of the job, as well as hiring new talent and training existing staff, all to be achieved while aligning with the commercial imperatives of the company. Videos, podcasts and events are also areas the company is keen to develop further, so expertise in these areas is helpful but not essential.

Techopedia.com, Business2Community.com, Cryptonews.com are leading news, analysis, education and data sites that cover the latest developments, trends and themes in the world of business, fintech and cryptocurrencies. In addition to covering the daily news cycle, our sites provide insight, reviews guides and other educational content for individuals and institutions looking to stay up-to-date with the rapidly evolving world of fintech, from blockchain to ChatGPT.

At Finixio, we’re committed to creating a culture that fosters growth, creativity, and innovation. If you’re passionate about the fintech and crypto industries and want to be part of a dynamic and fast-growing team, we encourage you to apply for this exciting opportunity.
