Climate Tech Editor
Los Angeles, CA
Posted Dec 30, 2022 - Requisition No. 112884
The energy of a newsroom. The pace of a trading floor. At Bloomberg, we connect decision makers to a dynamic network of information, people and ideas. At the core of this network is our ability to deliver data, news and analytics through innovative technology – quickly and accurately. Around the clock, around the globe – we empower business leaders with breaking news, expert opinion and proprietary data distributed across platforms.
Bloomberg Green is looking for an experienced editor to shape our coverage of climate technology. This is a wide-ranging beat that encompasses the groundbreaking innovations at the forefront of decarbonization as well as scores of clean-tech startups — everything from direct-air capture plants that pull carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to next-generation battery manufacturers, zero-emission steel foundries and lab-grown meat startups. This job requires tracing the path of emerging technologies from research laboratories through the venture-capital lifecycle and into the global economy.
The fast-growing scale of climate tech — with more than $70 billion in venture capital invested in hundreds of startups over the last two years, some 55 clean-tech unicorns, and hundreds of billions of dollars in new government spending now in the pipeline — makes cross-team collaboration a crucial part of this editing job.
WE'LL EXPECT YOU TO:
- Help explain unfamiliar technologies in clear language and be dedicated to puncture greenwashing hype
- Deliver vivid stories in formats that range from features and profiles to sharp newsletters and scoops
- Draw reporters, data visualization specialists and other contributors into the mix to get stories done
- Work diplomatically across the newsroom
YOU'LL NEED TO HAVE:
- A solid understanding of climate change and mitigation efforts, including the fundamentals of science and emissions accounting
- A proven track record of collaborating with reporters and editors to break news and deliver enterprise on deadline
- A sense of urgency combined with a track record of working across teams to produce creative work of the highest caliber
- An ability to think creatively about story presentation, formats and work with different platforms on audience engagement
- Experience working with video is a major plus
