Breaking news crypto reporter

Barron's is seeking a high-energy reporter who can insightfully cover breaking news about a burgeoning area of investment and finance: cryptocurrency.

This is one of the most exciting beats in business journalism. We are seeking a clean writer who can quickly find sharp and original angles on news developments, including the fortunes of crypto trading platforms, the ripple effects of the surge of crypto trading or an announcement by the U.S. government to create a digital dollar.

This reporter 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. Successful candidates should have experience working in a fast-paced digital newsroom. Barron's strongly values teamwork, so a collaborative approach is required.

Interested candidates can send a resume, no more than three clips in PDF form and a cover letter to David Cho or Bob Rose or apply through the link provided.

Responsibilities include:
  • Well sourced with the influencers, companies and personalities that drive the crypto world.
  • 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.
  • Clean, deadline writer
