Reuters seeks a reporter to cover Boeing

May 29, 2024

Posted by Chris Roush

Reuters is looking for a dynamic and ambitious U.S. Aerospace Correspondent (Level 1 Journalist) to lead our coverage of Boeing at a critical moment for the 107-year-old plane manufacturer.

Since the dramatic midair blowout of a door panel on a Boeing 737 MAX in January, the beleaguered jetmaker has been put under scrutiny by everyone from investors and airline customers to regulators and late-night comedians.

As Boeing searches for a new CEO, the company is grappling with a myriad of colliding challenges – criminal investigations, regulatory scrutiny, manufacturing delays, and market share losses to chief rival Airbus.

We’re looking for a self-starter who can cultivate sources, break news and generate agenda-setting enterprise stories to elevate our coverage of Boeing’s spiraling safety crisis and its implications for investors, suppliers, customers and Airbus.

Boeing’s defense and space businesses are also of keen interest to our clients, as well as crucial to the U.S. government and military. The reporter will be expected to work closely with our defense and space teams to break new ground on opaque, multi-billion-dollar programs, including on military aircraft, missile defense and space exploration.

The U.S. Aerospace Correspondent will be part of an experienced global team covering the world’s airlines, defense contractors and space companies. We’re seeking a team player who is comfortable collaborating on complex subjects ranging from corporate culture to engineering and industrial supply chains to regulatory overview.

Our preference is for the job to be based in Seattle, but we will consider other U.S. locations, including Washington D.C. and New York.

The deadline for applications is Tuesday, June 11th.

About the Role:

As our U.S Aerospace Correspondent, you will:

  • Break news and deliver deeply reported initiative stories on Boeing and its suppliers
  • Work closely with team members on stories about airlines, regulation, Airbus, space companies and defense contractors
  • Collaborate on investigative projects with a global team of reporters

About You:

To be our Aerospace Correspondent, you will have:

  • At least five years’ experience in financial journalism
  • A track record of delivering scoops and standout initiative stories
  • Deep understanding of the aerospace industry
  • A background as a strong team player
