The Wall Street Journal is looking for a reporter to join its Deals team and augment our top-notch coverage of mergers and other big transactions. You’ll roam across the deals landscape looking for scoops on mergers, leveraged buyouts and shareholder-activist campaigns, as well as stories that bring readers inside this fast-moving, colorful and consequential corner of Wall Street.
Few things are a bigger deal for a company than a takeover or activist campaign, and this is a core Journal franchise that has a long and dominant tradition. We’re looking for someone who wants to help carry that tradition on and take it to new heights.
You will report to Dana Cimilluca, the Deals Editor. Deals is a team sport, so you’ll work closely with the senior M&A reporter as well as other deals team colleagues and corporate reporters around the Journal empire. While you may start the job working remotely, you will eventually be based in our New York office.
