World Trade and Globalization Reporter

Careers at Bloomberg


Posted Feb 27, 2018 - Requisition No. 65527

The energy of a newsroom. The pace of a trading floor. We work hard and we work fast, moving markets and chronicling the rise and fall of the people who make them. We are known for our quality, accuracy and ability to deliver news investors can use. It's what keeps us inventing and re-inventing, all the time.

We're passionate about breaking news and writing stories that set the agenda, and we want reporters who are just as comfortable taking the lead on a story as they are collaborating with teammates. You'd be based in our Washington DC office working with one of the smartest and boldest media organizations in the world with a mandate to lead our coverage of World Trade and Globalization.

The Role

The applicant should be generally knowledgeable about the economy, financial markets and business and have a proven capacity to draw the dots between trade issues and broader economic and geopolitical debates. Applicants should have the ability to produce breaking news stories under real-time deadline pressure in a team environment, even as they regularly develop sophisticated, exclusive enterprise and analytic pieces for outlets such as Bloomberg Business Week.
