Job Description:

Dow Jones Newswires is looking for a reporter to join our team of smart and versatile journalists who fuel our real-time news and analysis service for financial professionals.

Based in Barcelona, this team of reporters monitors press releases, websites and other sources of news and fires off headlines and short stories on key developments for publication in real time. We are looking for a reporter who can identify important, forward-looking details from a fast-moving stream of information and turn it into informative, punchy headlines and short articles in English.

You will need to quickly analyze news and the signals it provides to investors. This takes the initial form of short, quick-fire analysis of market-moving corporate news, followed by slightly longer-form analysis that includes more detailed parsing of the event and themes. You will set yourself apart if you are adept at using data to find insights and underlying trends.

Accuracy, speed, excellent news judgement and planning, together with a close eye for detail, are necessary. You must be able to thrive in a fast-paced, high-volume news environment where teamwork and strong communication skills are very important, as is the ability to get under the hood of a beat. You should be able to jump quickly between subjects, languages and tasks while keeping a calm, clear head.

Excellent written English and near-native proficiency in German is required. Reporters will do some translation and media monitoring.

Ideally, you should have some knowledge of what to look for in corporate earnings statements and press releases, and some familiarity with economic data, financial markets and regulation, and a strong interest in these areas.

While you may be asked to start the job remotely, you will eventually be based in our Barcelona office and report to Barcelona Editor Sarah Sloat. To apply, please submit a resume and cover letter, and clips if available.

This is an exciting opportunity to write market-leading breaking news and analysis for Dow Jones, the global authority in business journalism and publisher of The Wall Street Journal.
