Bloomberg News is the leading global financial and business news organization. Bloomberg Government is the essential news and information hub covering policy, government spending and the top issues impacting Washington.
First Word-DC is the beating heart of it all, Bloomberg's Washington speed and breaking news desk that drives coverage of the U.S. government for those who need to know. We sit in the center of the Washington newsroom, where headlines and alerts cover every facet of U.S. government policy and politics, including the White House, Congress, regulatory agencies, and campaigns.
First Word-DC is seeking an experienced editor who can play all positions on our breaking news team seamlessly, a leader who doesn't mind doing the little things. The ideal applicant works well under pressure, understands Washington from Congress to regulatory issues and can quickly catch mistakes and improve copy when seconds count. We're looking for a player/coach, someone whose edits will improve reporters as well as their text, someone who can headline and write with speed and precision.
