CNBC.com seeking weekend news editor

CNBC Digital is seeking a dynamic journalist with a background in both business news and web production for a role on the team that operates the CNBC.com homepage.

The successful candidate will have a strong background in both writing and editing breaking news, particularly in the financial news that is core to the CNBC audience. At the same time, the candidate will also have extensive experience with web publication, including regular use of content management tools to edit, produce and publish stories.
