WSJ seeks Southeast Asia bureau chief
The Wall Street Journal is seeking an experienced and enterprising journalist to drive our coverage of Southeast Asia, a fascinating region of the world that has produced some of the most important news of our time, from ethnic cleansing to military provocations to Facebook.
The region is home to more than 650 million people in a range of countries triangulating between the U.S. and China. It is caught up in the trade war and the contest for the South China Sea. It is a battleground for American and Chinese tech companies, one of the few places they compete directly. And it is home to a cast of polarizing leaders trying to navigate these shoals.
We’re looking for an accomplished journalist who can lead this coverage from the front, a top-flight reporter who can provide strategic direction and management of our team while contributing high-impact coverage of their own. The ideal candidate will have a recent track record of delivering world-class enterprise reporting, along with clear strategic thinking, a firm understanding of the subject matter and the maturity to lead. The successful candidate will be expected to elevate our coverage and deliver the detailed, provocative stories that distinguish the Journal.
The position is based in Singapore and will report to the World Coverage Chief.
Dow Jones offers an opportunity to work for one of the world’s leading financial and business news companies. We invite interested candidates to submit a cover letter and detailed resume, current and expected salary.
