Here’s a brief job description:
MarketWatch seeks a NY-based reporter who wants to reshape how the stock, bond, currency and commodity markets are covered. The reporter will push stories beyond the daily swings, jolts, and slides, teasing out the bursts of insight and analysis readers need to make smarter decisions about their investments. The job requires not only an obsession with markets and investing, but a willingness to experiment with the very units of journalism and storytelling to find new ways to engage readers and combat our collective attention-deficit disorder. This reporter will be the kind of person who relishes rafting against endless rivers of tickers and tweets, who after scanning a 10-K filing can spot the germs of not only great news stories, but charts and Buzzfeed-style listicles, who can seize on the essential details with humor and verve, and who’s willing to pitch in wherever needed in an uncommonly collaborative global newsroom.
Please include a resume, cover letter and up to five published clips with your online application.
