About the Team:

MarketWatch provides real-time business news, analysis and stock market data to the general public. Providing insight into what the news of the moment means for your money, empowering you to take control of financial decisions.

About the Role:

MarketWatch is seeking an ambitious and experienced reporter to help average folk make sense of the sometimes arcane world of investing, as we build out our coverage of outlining the connective tissue between markets and people. The role is about serving as an advocate for retail investors, tracking popular trading strategies, including the increasing use of options and other instruments to gain exposure to the market.

The role will be based in our London, UK office and report to our London Bureau Chief.

You Will:

Explain how retail trading activity is driving or affecting the broader market. 

Track the social-media discussions around stocks, bonds and investing, and be able to explain the likelihood (or not) of those gambits coming to fruition. 

Be the eyes and ears of the modern retail investor, looking around corners to see how moves by regulators, brokerages, exchanges and other investors work for or against mom-and-pop investors. 

You’ll explain how to invest and show how others are doing it well, and detail the lessons others have made from their investing mistakes. 

You Have:

  • 5-8 years of experience as a digitally minded and enterprising reporter
  • A passion for writing clean, jargon-free prose that engages while also informing. 
  • Strong writing and reporting skills, with a proven track record of teasing out the right angle out of the barrage of news of the moment and you have a high-metabolism for delivering daily news. 
  • The ability to see multiple ways of telling a story and do so in different formats–with data, charts or other graphics—when the story merits. 
  • Excellent collaboration skills, and are someone who works well with others, making your teammates better with your involvement.  

Our Benefits:

  • Comprehensive Healthcare Plans
  • Paid Time Off
  • Retirement Plans
  • Comprehensive Insurance Plans
  • Lifestyle programs & Wellness Resources
  • Education Benefits
  • Family Care Benefits & Caregiving Support
  • Commuter Transit Program
  • Subscription Discounts
