machineByte.com, an online news site and events company dedicated to machine learning and data science in finance, is looking for a reporter to cover the Americas region.

Interested candidates should have experience in a reporting role in either capital markers or asset management, with knowledge of the FinTech market a plus. Recent graduates with an interest in finance and machine learning will also be considered.

The position calls for a reporter with the reporting and writing skills to tease news from financial jargon. The reporter will be expected to source stories themselves by developing relationships with a range of companies and people.

The reporter also must be able to write a breaking-news story as deftly as an in-depth profile and be open to publishing via different media such as podcasts and video. The job will require some travel and the reporter will also be expected to provide editorial input to events run by machineByte.

This role can be based in New York City or Chicago.
