Quartz seeks a reporter to cover the future of finance globally, spanning a broad range of finance and technology topics.
You would be part of Quartz’s growing, distributed team and help shape our unique approach to covering business and finance news. This position would focus on the forces shaping global finance right now—technology, regulation, and sustainable investing—and in the future. You’ll dig up news and data and quickly translate them into provocative articles that deliver real insights to our readers.
We are looking for journalists with:
- substantial professional reporting experience on finance topics
- facility with data
- an entrepreneurial approach to their work
- the ability to convey authority and curiosity in their writing
- an interest in mentoring or coaching junior reporters
The successful candidate will demonstrate an understanding of the fundamental underpinnings of the banking and finance industries, while also being able to identify key moments or forecasts for their evolution and growth. The reporter will have a unique appreciation for how innovation in finance is driven as much by the shortcomings of legacy banking, as it is about any radical technologically-inspired transformation. That might mean writing about the rising power of retail investors and EFTs, the implications of decentralized finance, and the future of the IPO.
You should feel equally comfortable examining consumer banking and debt trends, trading and exchanges, and the future of Wall Street banks as you are with emerging trends in fintech and crypto.
