The Wall Street Journal

Reporter, Air Safety & Space
The Wall Street Journal is looking for a reporter to cover air safety and space. The position is part of our aerospace and aviation team and involves developing a deep command of the technical, regulatory and business issues around air safety. You will produce scoops, write authoritatively on major breaking news and deliver smart analysis. The ability to produce high-impact enterprise stories on a regular basis to develop agenda-setting coverage is essential.

You will be expected to work closely with our aerospace- and airline-industry reporters in the U.S. and globally to deliver agenda-setting coverage as a team. The beat will also include coverage of the business of space within the big aerospace companies and at startups, as well as the future role of NASA.

You should have at least five years of reporting experience covering business, finance or regulation with a proven track record of agenda-setting beat work. Previous experience covering aerospace, aviation or space is welcome, but reporters eager to learn the beat quickly should also apply. We are also looking for someone who can think creatively about the best way to tell stories for our digital audience and who is eager to work on various forms of storytelling, including video, audio and interactives.
