Candidates will have 5-7 years of reporting experience and be strong writers with the drive to keep OZY ahead of the curve on big ideas and rising stars of tomorrow to fit our distinct storytelling sections.

WHAT YOU’LL LOVE DOING:

  • Pitch and write original and compelling Business, Finance and Economic features each week
  • Cover the leaders and trends of tomorrow
  • Conceive of and own projects from investigative reports to editorial series
  • Work as part of a close-knit team — the OZY tribe — to help reinvent online journalism and build a unique brand
  • Collaborate on podcasts and represent OZY on TV and radio

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR:

  • At least 5-7 years of reporting experience
