Quartz was founded in 2012 to be the greatest ally and resource for purpose-driven professionals in search of new approaches to business. We help our readers discover new industries, new markets, and new ways of doing business that are more sustainable, innovative, and inclusive.

Business leaders choose Quartz because our work, both the journalism and how we present it, stands in contrast to the usual voices in business media:

  • Spirit of Generosity: Quartz seeks in its ranks a spirit of generosity–a natural disposition in each colleague toward service and selfless conduct. Quartz writing should be cut from the same cloth–critical on the merits but informed by charity and forbearance in measuring motive and personal character.

Quartz is committed to building a team that includes a wide variety of backgrounds and perspectives. We aim to be a place where a diverse mix of dedicated people will want to come, to stay, and do their best work. We strongly encourage applicants who are people of color, LGBTQ, women, people with disabilities, and/or formerly incarcerated people, and a college degree is not required.

Quartz Media Inc is hiring a Remote Future of Finance Senior Reporter - location flexible

Future of Finance Senior Reporter - location flexible

Quartz seeks a reporter to cover the future of finance globally, spanning a broad range of finance and technology topics. You would be part of Quartz’s growing, distributed team and help shape our unique approach to covering business and finance news. This position would focus on the forces shaping global finance right now—technology, regulation, and sustainable investing—and in the future. You’ll dig up news and data and quickly translate them into provocative articles that deliver real insights to our readers.

We are looking for journalists with:

  • substantial professional reporting experience on finance topics
  • facility with data
  • an entrepreneurial approach to their work
  • the ability to convey authority and curiosity in their writing
  • an interest in mentoring or coaching junior reporters 

The successful candidate will demonstrate an understanding of the fundamental underpinnings of the banking and finance industries, while also being able to identify key moments or forecasts for their evolution and growth. The reporter will have a unique appreciation for how innovation in finance is driven as much by the shortcomings of legacy banking, as it is about any radical technologically-inspired transformation. That might mean writing about the rising power of retail investors and EFTs, the implications of decentralized finance, and the future of the IPO.

You should feel equally comfortable examining consumer banking and debt trends, trading and exchanges, and the future of Wall Street banks as you are with emerging trends in fintech and crypto. 

At Quartz we take a global, interdisciplinary, creative, and forward-looking approach to covering the news. We love stories that connect the dots, or fill in the blanks other articles miss. 

Your work will include a mix of quickly written pieces of news analysis, chart-based articles, scoops of fact or insight, and deeply reported features, all rooted in data and smart reporting. The successful candidate also will contribute to Quartz’s membership emails and Daily Brief.

All locations will be considered but we are looking for candidates who are able to work on US or European business hours. (Quartz is remote-first, which means you would be onboarding in a remote environment.) To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, and five links to relevant stories you’ve written and reported.

In the US, this position is covered by the collective bargaining agreement between Quartz Media and the NewsGuild of New York, CWA Local 31003, AFL-CIO. The contractual salary minimum for this position is $63,000 per year.
