Responsibilities include the following:

  • Generate compelling stories and sharp analysis on a daily basis.
  • Tell stories through the use of multimedia content including charts, graphs and slideshows.
  • Engage with payments industry professionals on social media
  • Some travel to conferences and other events


Candidates must be comfortable interacting with executives and must demonstrate ability to cultivate sources, report and break news on tight deadlines, and generate story ideas on a daily basis.

We offer a competitive compensation and benefits package, including medical, dental and vision coverage; disability and life insurance; paid time off; a 401(k) plan; a pre-tax transportation payment program; and subsidized health club membership.
