Are you passionate about the intersection of news and technology? Do you have a vision for the newsroom of the future? Make it a reality on Bloomberg's Data-Driven News team (DNA). As news gathering & reporting becomes increasingly technology-driven, we leverage the latest digital tools to make Bloomberg News content smarter, faster and deeper -- and we're constantly innovating to meet the rapidly evolving needs of the modern newsroom. Thanks to Bloomberg's world-class data, expansive engineering resources and bold & experimental culture, there's no better place to shape the future of the news industry.

Bloomberg is one of the world's biggest financial news organizations, leading the way in developing AI-assisted models and data-driven workflows to cover company earnings, economic indicators, mergers and acquisitions, initial public offerings and other major events relevant to markets. As a DNA editor, you'll work hand in glove with the Technology and Tools team to develop smarter tools and processes to help Bloomberg journalists deliver news to readers as quickly as possible so they can stay a step ahead. You'll collaborate across APAC with teams covering breaking news through to deeper data-driven analysis from Beijing to Tokyo, Jakarta to Mumbai. DNA's broader purview also positions them to step back and evaluate systems & workflows more strategically, connecting the dots across markets and identifying the best way to prioritize development of new & existing technologies.

We'll trust you to:

  • Collaborate with journalists throughout all our APAC bureaus to learn their technology needs and encourage use of new software, features and workflows
  • Work across departments, from Bloomberg Intelligence to Global Data, to ensure Bloomberg's best content is used in all our technology-driven news stories
  • Learn complex information systems inside and out, in order to test enhancements, troubleshoot issues and configure settings for maximum accuracy
  • Think creatively to identify opportunities for improving coverage with new and existing technologies
  • Stay on top of major stories and trends that matter to market participants

You need to have:

  • A minimum of 3 recent years of experience in financial Journalism
  • Experience in a real-time news environment
  • Experience in using technology (automation, software tools, programming) to produce, automate or improve news content
  • Fluency in both written and spoken English
  • Passion for the limitless possibilities of technology in news
  • A visionary mindset to brainstorm the ideas that will shape the newsroom of the future
  • An inexhaustible drive to make processes better and more efficient
  • Levelheadedness to solve problems quickly and confidently in high pressure situations
  • Outstanding communication skills

We'd also love to see:

  • Professional experience in technology - if you're a journalist with great ideas who hasn't had the chance to dig into the technology/systems side of news yet, you'll learn the ropes from our team of seasoned project managers
  • Experience in a programming or query language and using it in a data analysis/data science context (e.g. Python, R, JavaScript, SQL, Visual Basic etc.)
