The Information

Wall Street Reporter
If you’re interested in how the capital markets work, and you love the tech industry, The Information has a job for you. We’re looking for a reporter to cover tech companies’ interactions with Wall Street: how the companies go public and how they deal with investors and Wall Street once they are public.

This may be the best time to cover this beat. Companies can now choose to go public via the traditional IPO, through a direct listing, or by merging with a SPAC. In the coming year, direct listings are expected to evolve, as companies get the right to raise money through a hybrid direct listing. Meanwhile, the stock market is trading at near record highs, driven by the tech sector.

The successful candidate will know her or his way around the banking world and big institutional investors, with a proven track record in breaking news. They will know how to read financial statements, allowing them to write critically about valuations of public stocks. You’ll work closely with our team of reporters who covers the startup and venture capital communities.
