Over 50 million professionals—including entrepreneurs, investors, market researchers, and salespeople—trust Crunchbase to inform their business decisions. We believe diverse thinking fosters the discovery of new solutions and surfaces old problems that need answers.

The Crunchbase Marketing and Media Team

Our team is instrumental across the entire user journey, from brand awareness through user retention. We combine creativity with decisions based on data and are always thinking about how we can better connect and inform our audience. Crunchbase News, the news division of Crunchbase, is looking for a late-stage venture capital reporter. This is a role for a journalist who loves breaking news and doing enterprise reporting — and has the clips to prove it.

This role is remote-friendly, but if you are based in a startup-hub (the San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle, New York, Boston, Austin, or Boulder) that’s a big plus.

What You’ll Do

    • Proficient in the world of startups and passionate about innovation and innovators
    • Enjoys writing stories of varying length, and want to break news as often as you can
    • Ready to take your career to the next level with a crew of journalists dedicated to editorial integrity and fact-based analysis and features
    • Eager to know (and be known) in the VC community and participate in networking, panels, and source-development

What We’re Looking For

    • 3-5 years of experience as a reporter
    • Willing to partner with a majority-remote team
    • Experience using modern communications tools like Slack, Zoom, and Google Docs
    • You are a team-oriented person who is excited to join a collaborative team
    • WordPress experience a plus
    • Knowledge of common SEC filings relating to startup finance a plus
