Quartz seeks a reporter to cover international markets and economics, and the relentless flow of charts, data and ideas they produce. You would be part of the growing Quartz team based in New York, and help shape our efforts to take bracingly creative approaches to covering business news.
We are looking for journalists with professional reporting experience, an entrepreneurial approach to their work, and the ability to convey curiosity and humor in their writing.
The central challenge of this job: Developing fresh ways to dig up news, data and ideas and quickly translate them into provocative articles packed with context and perspective. The ideal candidate will be awash in data, and love to make connections across asset classes, companies, and products in a never-ending effort to make sense of the world. This will undoubtedly take you into writing about businesses, products, consumer trends, economies, politics, and other matters affecting people’s lives and work.
The reporter will view world markets and economic data as an endless source of story ideas.
They’ll think of a chart as the perfect way to encapsulate a major theme or trend, and be energized at the prospect of obsessively covering the issues our global business audience needs to know about, in a conversational, approachable way. International background and experience are a plus.
Across Atlantic Media, generally, the firm looks for two “pillar gifts” in its candidates. In all of us, these are more aspirational than actual, but they are central in our intentions.
1. Force of Intellect - Atlantic Media seeks a discipline and rigor of thought as manifested, often, in exceptional academic performance and, later, success in a professional environment.
2. Spirit of Generosity - Equally, Atlantic Media seeks what we term a spirit of generosity – a natural disposition towards service and selfless conduct.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, and five links to relevant work. The links matter most.
