We are currently expanding our Markets team and we’re looking for a talented reporter to join us. You’ll be expected to write accurate and relevant news items for our readers.

Ideal applicants are deeply passionate about all things crypto and finance-related and enjoy brokering conversations about how digital currencies are altering the public perception about how money is classified and used. You should be comfortable covering breaking news related to cryptocurrency price action, derivatives market data, and on-chain data. Ideally, you will be available Monday through Friday from 10 am – 5 pm ET and there will be opportunities to cover weekend shifts. What we are looking for:

  • Exceptional attention to detail and fact-checking skills.
  • A person capable of breaking down complex concepts to easily digestible text for crypto investors with varying degrees of experience.
  • Demonstrable writing experience within business markets.
