Journo Jobs seeks senior business reporter

July 27, 2017

Posted by Chris Roush

BusinessDen, an independent daily business news website in Denver, Colorado, is searching for a savvy reporter to join our thriving newsroom. You will be digging up stories on a booming local economy — one that in the last year has lured Amazon and Apple to town. (Both stories broken by BusinessDen.)  And you’ll be joining an exciting, young company with a proven online business model, experienced leadership and passionate editors and reporters.

Job Overview

The right candidate will be able to produce two tightly written stories per day. A knack for working sources in person and on the phones is a must.


We look for three qualities when hiring reporters: a natural curiosity, a proven work ethic and a fierce competiveness. You must relish breaking a scoop and hate the taste of getting beat by a competitor.

If you are the sort of reporter who picks up a news tip in the cab to the airport, while getting your bike tuned or in line for a bagel, we want to hear from you.

Other basic qualifications
– At least 5 years of business reporting experience (willing to consider younger applicants who impress us)
– Proven ability to dig up stories through old-fashioned source work and documents (new business licenses, legal filings …)
– Clean and crisp writing style
– Some editing experience to help fill in when needed

About us

Our first newsroom, in Richmond, VA, has been running profitably for 10 years. We are replicating our innovative all-online model throughout the country. Denver is our next challenge and is now in its third year.

About Denver

Denver is a fantastic place to live and report – with major league sports, 300 days of sunshine and of course world-class, four-season recreation.


Pay based upon experience.

To Apply

Please send a cover letter explaining why you are the best candidate for this position to Please explain both your business reporting highlights and your interest in the beat and include 3-5 clips of your hard news business writing. And tell us the biggest scoop you’ve broken and how you landed it.
