Full Time

The Wall Street Journal is looking for a dynamic, accomplished newsbreaker to join our Asia markets team.

Asset prices have converged, and so have we. We are a group of multidisciplinary enthusiasts chasing whatever is current and pressing in markets.

We are looking for someone to help us deliver smart stories about what's happening with money in Asia, get a jump on important global trends, and deliver front-page stories about major issues, trends, people and banks.

The ideal candidate is fluent in markets and Mandarin, able to bring to bear a broad understanding of the crosscurrents of finance, politics and the economy, and how those forces play out in asset prices, capital flight, the banking industry and so on.

This reporter should also be able to think big, identifying and jumping on global themes. That could mean collaborating with reporters in other WSJ bureaus on longer term projects, or providing the Journal's core readership with quick, insightful pieces ahead of the U.S. day.

China's large but previously isolated financial markets are growing in importance, with onshore stocks and bonds now worth roughly $20 trillion and gaining sway in influential global indexes.

This gradual integration into the international financial system, paired with Beijing's ambivalence toward market forces, is one of the biggest topics in global finance and that means plenty of opportunities to generate exclusives and insightful analysis.

Dow Jones offers an opportunity to work for one of the world's leading financial and business news companies.

We invite interested candidates to click 'APPLY' and submit a cover letter and detailed resume (including up to five published samples of your work).
