    Quartz seeks an economics reporter obsessed with changes in labor markets, global trade, and the impact of monetary policy on countries and companies. 

    we are looking for a journalist with

    • a deep understanding of and fascination with economics
    • at least five years’ professional reporting experience or equivalent experience in the field of economics
    • an entrepreneurial approach
    • data fluency
    • the ability to convey curiosity, sophistication, and a clear point of view in your writing

    At Quartz we take a global, interdisciplinary, forward-looking approach to covering the news. US economic trends and monetary policy will be essential elements of your beat, but your coverage should expand from there, with stories that explain or predict the impact of these developments on people, politics, and businesses around the world.

    You should feel equally comfortable reporting and writing short pieces of news analysis, chart-based articles, scoops of fact or insight, and deeply reported features. Experimenting with new ways to put news and data into context will be a central challenge of the job.

    All locations will be considered. (Quartz is currently all-remote, 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.


    Enterprise Values

    Quartz recruits talent for two salient attributes or qualities:

    • Force of Ideas: At the center of Quartz work are the ideas within our writing.  We believe that ideas–to the good and not–have consequences. Our highest work is bringing rigor, insight, intellectual honesty, to that ultimate purpose of separating the bad from the good, and giving voice to the latter.
    • 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.
