Quartz seeks a reporter to lead its coverage of the global consumer.
You would be part of the growing Quartz team, and help shape our efforts to take bracingly creative approaches to covering business news. You will view the technological transformation of retail and changes in consumer behavior globally as an endless source of story ideas.
Topics we’ve covered have ranged from the decline of the microwave oven, why Germans pay cash for everything, how Facebook modeled its commerce on Alibaba, and why Amazon is secretly building a superfast delivery empire.
An ability to look at consumption trends and translate them into interesting, provocative articles, with a solid grounding in data, is a central challenge of this job.
We are looking for someone with professional reporting experience, a facility with data, an entrepreneurial approach to their work, and the ability to convey curiosity and subtle humor in their writing.
You will tell your stories in the forms that work best, whether that’s short, chart-based posts, as a Thing, or as explainers and features. You will have a high metabolism, writing obsessively on a daily basis. International experience and languages are a plus.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, and five links to relevant work. The links matter most.
