Posted by Chris Roush

The Wall Street Journal is seeking a reporter to cover U.S. financial markets — a high-profile, fast-paced beat at the core of the newsroom. You’ll sit at the intersection of big themes that touch markets, economies and investors all over the world, and you should be eager to explain these dynamics to a general audience and to sophisticated financial readers.

Our markets reporters develop broad expertise across the financial landscape, and you should have the intellectual curiosity to take on stocks, bonds, commodities, currencies or whatever else is in the news. You’ll develop specialist areas of expertise depending on the team’s needs and your interests.

You will:

  • Write about daily moves in financial markets, bring readers both news and analysis with urgency
  • Use your analytical skills and expertise to write authoritative and creative feature stories about the financial markets.

You have:

  • Experience covering markets or a related subject; we will also consider candidates with track record of scoops and enterprise work on other beats
  • Strong explanatory writing skills
  • An ability to work with data; data-analysis or coding skills are a plus
  • Flexibility to work in short, fast formats and in longer narrative formats

While you may start the job working remotely, this position will be based in New York City.

To apply, please submit your resume and a cover letter explaining how you would approach the role. Please also share clips or other samples of the work you’re most proud of.
