Posted by Mariam Ahmed

The Baltimore Business Journal, an award-winning print and daily digital publication, seeks a journalist who wants to thrive in a fast-paced news environment focused on breaking business news on a daily basis. The digital news producer curates, reports, writes and edits relevant and engaging online content that is timely, compelling and drives audience engagement. The job requires solid news judgment, strong editing and writing skills, plus familiarity with SEO and website analytics.

The ideal candidate has:

  • A background in reporting, digital media and business journalism.
  • A solid understanding of news writing, journalistic ethics and story structure.
  • An ability to use a broad set of tools to tell stories and engage the audience.
  • A desire to take ownership of and responsibility for various platforms and productions.
  • A willingness to be a collaborative team player, able to handle multiple assignments simultaneously and additional news and story assignments as dictated by newsroom needs.

Journalists at the BBJ and its parent company, American City Business Journals, will join our hybrid newsroom and cover business in one of the most dynamic regions in the country.

  • They must be competitive, nimble and driven to break news about the most important industries, companies and people in the region.
  • They are expected to provide forward-looking business intelligence to savvy readers who will use it to grow their businesses and/or advance their careers.
  • Our content gives them a leg up on their competitors, connects them with decision-makers and delineates growth strategies that work from those that don’t.
  • This usually entails working our source networks and digging up news before it’s announced or readily available.
  • They break hard news that sometimes sources don’t want brought to light, but they don’t burn bridges.

Please send a resume, clips and a cover letter to Editor-in-Chief Joanna Sullivan, explaining why you want to work for the BBJ.
