This is an opportunity to shape stories across stocks, credit, emerging markets, FX and rates markets in a variety of formats. You will be challenged to think creatively about stories and elevate our work to a global audience, as well as handle quick turnarounds on breaking news and speedy market analysis.

You’ll help us handle the volume of day-to-day news flow and be strongly encouraged to lead high-impact, enterprise stories that raise the bar of our markets coverage.
We'll trust you to:
- Edit short- and long-form copy. Be game for everything from short, bullet-point blasts to complex, ambitious enterprise.
- Work closely with reporters to develop and refine their stories.
- Cut through jargon, and make complex stories appealing and understandable to a broad business audience.
You'll need to have:
- A minimum of 5 years of recent financial journalism experience
- Intellectual curiosity and strong news judgement
- Top-notch writing skills and the ability to craft concise, clean prose under deadline pressure
