Trending Reporter, Virus News (Contract)
The energy of a newsroom. The pace of a trading floor. We work hard, and we work fast — while keeping up the creativity and entrepreneurialism we're known for. It's what keeps us inventing and reinventing, all the time. As social media plays an important role in generating both legitimate pandemic-related news and disinformation, we are looking for a smart, curious writer who is able to spot and capture trends involving the virus across social media platforms -- including attempts to mislead. This role will focus on identifying where the social conversation is going and writing quick pieces that answer our readership's most burning questions with the authority of Bloomberg's data-driven global perspective. The ideal candidate should be a strong writer and reporter who’s comfortable producing accurate, short form pieces with a quick turnaround in addition to richly reported longer-form and investigative features. We're looking for a self-starter with a passion for demystifying the science and business implications of the pandemic and the global vaccination campaign.
