CoinDesk seeks ME for global macro and policy

April 14, 2020

Posted by Chris Roush

Leading a team of reporters in the U.S., Asia and Europe, the Managing Editor for Global Macro & Policy will play a vital role in CoinDesk’s coverage expansion. The team’s stories will cover and explore new developments in the fiat and fiat-backed digital currency space, as well as the prospective transformation of credit markets and other aspects of the traditional global financial system that accompany them. They will also address the debates and regulatory responses that these technological and structural changes to the financial system elicit. The goal is to produce a suite of coverage that captures both the details behind these new ideas and policies and broad macroeconomic and geopolitical implications. The editor will work closely with editors and reporters in other beats, especially in tech and business to keep CoinDesk on top or the latest developments.

The Managing Editor for Global Macro & Policy will coordinate coverage among the reporters in their team and will be expected to write stories of their own. Pieces will be of varying styles, from short-form news pieces to news analysis and long-form investigations, and will from time to time have multimedia content associated with them. There will also play a role in our events programming and, where needed, work with the research team to flesh out its deep-dive insight reports into global macro trends.

The Managing Editor for Global Macro & Policy and policy editor will report to the Executive Editor.
