Financial Times

Digital Assets Correspondent
The Financial Times is looking for a digital assets correspondent to cover crypto and related areas, as we deepen our coverage of this fast-growing industry. We are seeking an ambitious and experienced journalist with strong scoop-getting chops for this senior reporting role. The ideal candidate will have a deep understanding of the companies and people driving the $2tn crypto market. The digital assets correspondent will be expected to pitch original and impactful stories and interviews aimed at a general business readership. The journalist will cover a wide patch that includes topics like regulation, market structure, corporate finances and the intersection of traditional and digital asset markets. Collaboration with other relevant correspondents - in regulation and finance in the UK and around the world - will be key. A significant portion of the role will involve shining a light on what is happening behind the scenes in the digital asset industry - delving into what exactly companies and influential individuals are doing. That means developing a rich contact book of sources and delivering stories that transcend the misinformation and hyperbole that often surround the topic.
