The Role: Reporter, Financial Services & Insurance

The Location: Charlottesville, VA

The Team: The U.S. Financial Services and Insurance team covers the broad, exciting and fast-paced world of financial news: our coverage spans asset managers, investment banking, trading markets, financial technology and insurers. Equifax's data breach? We're on it. The impacts of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria on insurance markets and consumers? Us again. Ongoing wrangling in Congress over the Affordable Care Act? If you guessed us you'd be correct. The ways automation and the internet are changing investing and consumer lending? We cover that, too.

The Impact: Ours is the biggest, oldest team in the S&P Newsroom, with a dedicated readership that relies on our objective coverage of markets, deals and regulation. We are actively building out more in-depth news of FinTech — news our readers are hungry for.

What’s in it for you:

  • Put your writing and research skills to use as you develop a beat in the exciting FinTech space
  • The opportunity to brainstorm and collaborate with colleagues around the globe daily
  • Learn about new topics across a broad spectrum of financial companies, every single day
  • Work with a team of smart journalists and editors who are passionate about the news

Responsibilities:

  • Develop the FinTech beat in cooperation with fellow reporters and our colleagues in research
  • Write spot news coverage
  • Write feature-length and longform data-driven stories
  • Read through news releases, third-party reports and SEC filings
  • Cover conference calls with company executives
  • Attend conferences and events
  • Build relationships with sources, analysts and industry authorities

What We’re Looking For:

Basic Qualifications:

  • Phenomenal writing skills
  • Real passion for news
  • Deep curiosity
  • Collaborative attitude
  • Attention to detail
  • Receptivity to feedback

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience in business journalism
