This position has a broad and special mandate: explaining the financial markets to investors and consumers in daily coverage and through high-level enterprise stories. The successful candidate must be a critical thinker and be well sourced among investors, traders and other Wall Street experts. The candidate must identify market trends and write authoritative stories with flair and clarity. The candidate must be an idea machine; somebody who sees stories where others see fog.

The candidate will have experience delivering stories in a fast-pace world with a proven ability to work under deadline pressure. We're looking for someone who isn't satisfied to simply inform.

At least three years of experience in markets writing is required.
- Advanced-level professional competency in written and spoken English language is required
