Few organizations can keep up with the fast-paced, 24/7 nature of today's media coverage; even fewer can claim to have helped shape it. Bloomberg has long been a leading source of data and news and presents one of the most challenging environments in financial journalism. Bloomberg offers a unique opportunity to produce real-time stories that shape the markets and our world.
Bloomberg News seeks an editor in its Sao Paulo office to join its Latin America Energy and Commodities team. The successful candidate will be a team player who is passionate about breaking news and dealing with the region's biggest stories. Bloomberg seeks self-starters with the ability to translate often complex themes into clear, accurate, and compelling stories and who have the experience to help reporters break news. Knowledge of the economy, financial markets, and business is essential, and at least three years of business editing experience at a major newspaper or wire service is preferred. The person in this role must be fluent in English and Portuguese, and should have experience editing commodities stories.
The editor will focus on breaking news, such as company earnings and takeovers, as well as commodity market stories. This person in this role will also help produce enterprise pieces on a regular basis. The successful applicant is expected to have superior news judgment, with the ability to make snap decisions about stories that regularly appear on TOP, Bloomberg's front page.
