Forbes believes in the power of entrepreneurial capitalism and uses it on various platforms to ignite the conversations that drive systemic change in business, culture and society. We celebrate success and are committed to using our megaphone to drive diversity, equity and inclusion. Forbes has recently announced plans to go public and to be listed on the NYSE via a special purpose acquisition company (or SPAC). This will enable Forbes to further capitalize on its successful digital transformation, using technology and data-driven insights to create more deeply engaged audiences, through editorial, product development and strategic investments. Forbes is looking for a smart, well-sourced Music Writer to cover the business of music focusing on industry insiders and power players, track trends and write engaging stories on subjects that include uncovering and dissecting the strategies behind billionaire actors in the industry, highest-paid stars, innovative startups, entre­preneurs that are transforming the industry, and behind the scenes numbers stories on headline topics. The ideal candidate understands the breadth of the beat, has an interest in markets and entrepreneurship and how they are affecting the industry, its top earners, biggest companies and most powerful figures, as well as cultural trends that are having a financial impact. The candidate relentlessly pursues big scoops, and thrives in a fast-paced environ­ment, where creativity and teamwork are highly valued.
