Description:

American Banker, one of the leading financial services brands of Arizent, is the definitive source for ideas driving the banking industry.  American Banker provides the essential resource for senior executives in banking and financial services, keeping its users updated on vital developments and focusing sharply on their most important concerns — innovation, transformation, and disruption; technology, regulation, and reform. Financial industry professionals turn to American Banker, every day and throughout the day, to stay maximally informed — drilling down on complex issues, keeping up with breaking news, and downloading research and data. Paid subscribers and registered visitors engage deeply with an authoritative community of analysts, practitioners and innovators through opinion content, research panels, social media, and live events.

Responsibilities:

We are currently seeking a reporter to cover the intersection of technology and the banking industry.
- The successful candidate will be responsible for writing breaking news stories and longer features about U.S. commercial banking, technology, fintechs and all things in between.
- Will work closely with colleagues in the newsroom and around the country to coordinate coverage. The ability to write clearly and accurately under tight deadlines is required. Knowledge of banking, finance, digital journalism and social media are a plus.

Qualifications:

Candidates should have a minimum of two years reporting experience and preferably an understanding of banking and financial services. Essential skills include an ability to generate unique story ideas and provocative analysis for a sophisticated banking audience, write clearly on deadline and cooperate closely with editors and other colleagues in a fast-paced newsroom.

 

We offer a competitive compensation and benefits package. Our extensive offerings include medical, dental, and vision coverage; disability and life insurance; paid time off; a 401(k) plan; a pre-tax transportation payment program; and subsidized health club membership.

For consideration, please send your cover letter, resume, clips and salary requirements.
