We are looking for a journalist with experience in a fast-paced news environment and a background in economics and markets coverage.

This job is based in Barcelona.

You will:

  • Plan, organize and publish in real time a range of key economic indicators from across EMEA.
  • Exercise news judgment to identify economic themes and significant breaking news, and to respond quickly.
  • Recognize and respond to the core audiences for Dow Jones Newswires, and their needs and expectations.
  • Collaborate with reporters and editors from other groups, including WSJ colleagues and those in other bureaus and regions.
  • Uphold Dow Jones standards and ethics.

You have:

  • A well-honed sense of urgency along with a capacity to remain calm under pressure.
  • Intellectual curiosity and the ability to generate regular story and analysis ideas.
  • Solid news judgement that allows you to identify economic themes and significant breaking news.

The Journal’s reporters, editors, developers, and audio and visual journalists create important and impactful stories, firmly rooted in fact and adhering to the highest ethical standards. We report without fear or bias, and we maintain a proper sense of perspective, detachment and objectivity in our reporting.
