Job Description:

The Wall Street Journal is looking for a reporter with a passion for urban life to tell the stories of the country's wildest real estate market, New York City. In this role, you will cover every aspect of the city's property market -- the office towers, retail stores, hotels, condos, co-ops and rentals -- at a time when the city's future has rarely been more tied to its real estate. Activity at Manhattan office buildings will offer insight into how much the remote work trend will continue. The city's up and down apartment rental market is a sign of how many young people are returning to the city. Hotels are a barometer of tourism demand and the return of business travel.

We're looking for a skilled storyteller who can spot meaningful shifts in the real estate market that could have profound effects on living and doing business in the city. The beat offers the chance to cover the property moves of high-profile companies like Amazon and Facebook. You will also have an opportunity to explore the city's politics, fashion, food, tourism, and finance sectors as they relate to real estate. The types of stories you can write on this beat are only limited by your imagination.

You don't need to have experience covering real estate, but showing that you have mastered a competitive beat is a plus.

You will report to the real estate bureau chief. While you will likely start this job remotely, you will eventually be based in our New York office.

To apply, please submit your resume, a cover letter explaining how you would approach the job and five work samples.
