Bloomberg is looking for a social/audience editor to lead our markets and breaking news coverage on social.

This person will shape markets, economics, and breaking news coverage on Bloomberg’s Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and other social platforms. You will work closely with homepage, web, and other audience editors to drive attention to Bloomberg’s reporting as it happens. You will also be responsible for working with our markets team to identify the biggest moves in equities and commodities and post charts showing dramatic climbs and declines throughout the trading day. Essentially, you will keep our audience attuned with what’s driving markets during the day, and why.

The ideal candidate is experienced in news and is obsessed with breaking news, and markets. You’re passionate about what’s happening in the now, from sharing news about the biggest stock moves of the day to breaking stories across all of Bloomberg’s coverage areas. In this role, you will also experiment with tactics to find new ways to tell these stories on Twitter and drive engagement.


  • Think creatively about tactics and techniques in order to drive engagement around breaking and markets news on social
  • Distribute Bloomberg content (video, stories, charts)
  • Cover breaking news every day during US markets hours
  • Monitor, analyze and distribute social metrics to wider teams as needed


  • 3+ years of experience as an editor or social media editor, preferably in a digital newsroom environment
