Reporter, Quartz Hong Kong

Quartz Hong Kong is a division of The Atlantic Monthly Group Hong Kong, an affiliate of Atlantic Media.

 

Quartz Hong Kong seeks a reporter to contribute to its coverage of Chinese businesses for a global audience. Based in Hong Kong, you would be part of the growing Quartz team worldwide, and help shape our efforts to take bracingly creative approaches to covering business news.

 

This reporter will focus primarily on technology, and at those places where tech intersects with social media, science and health. You will excel at producing original takes on the news, reported scoops, and informed analysis. Developing fresh ways to look at technology trends and social media use and translate them into interesting, provocative articles and charts, is a central challenge of this job.

 

Your reporting will lead you to examine phenomena ranging from how China’s pollution challenges its population’s health to how the nation is harnessing tech in its efforts to deal with climate change and how China’s growing wealth is shaping business within and beyond its borders.

 

We are looking for someone with professional reporting experience, a facility with data, an entrepreneurial approach to their work, and the ability to convey curiosity and humor in their writing. The reporter should feel comfortable with using formats other than 700-word articles (such as shorter pieces, photos, and charts) when they’re better for efficiently and effectively getting a story across.

 

Specifically, this reporter must possess:

  • Ability to quickly parse a broad range of source material, from social media feeds to official pronouncements
  • A demonstrable talent for tracking and analyzing data
  • Excellent reporting and writing skills
  • Experience using formats other than words, such as video, audio and charts
  • Hold at least a bachelor’s degree, and preferably a masters, in journalism or a closely related field of study
  • Fluency in English and Mandarin
  • An ability to speak Cantonese an added plus
  • Experience managing social media accounts an asset, though not essential

 

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.

 

Atlantic Media strives to be an equal opportunity employer of Minorities/Women/Disability
