Barron's is seeking a high-energy general assignment reporter who can insightfully cover breaking business news.
We are seeking a fast writer who can quickly offer insights into the biggest stories of each day, which are typically U.S. focused. This journalist ideally would be based in London, but we are open to other locations, as long as this person can write and publish stories early in the morning for readers living on the East Coast of the U.S.
While others are producing commodity stories, this reporter should write stories that deliver analysis — or an interesting angle — about the news as readers are trying to understand those events. The reporter would have the opportunity to write longer, reported-out features and analytical pieces, so experience writing enterprise would be an advantage.
A successful candidate should be digitally savvy, with a keen understanding of how to generate a large audience by making the news digestible by using FAQs, charts and other news-you-can-use story forms, and an understanding of viral stories.
Barron’s strongly values teamwork, so a collaborative approach is required.
Able to generate quick angles and strong ideas off the news and meet urgent deadlines.
Familiarity with corporate balance sheets, financial valuations and investing principles.
At least 3 years experience working as a reporter at a national or trade business news publication
Familiarity of U.S. markets and companies.
Clean, deadline writer
