Role overview

Cointelegraph is the world’s foremost cryptocurrency and blockchain media outlet, serving millions of readers worldwide each month. 

We are currently expanding our Markets team and we’re looking for a talented reporter to join us in the United States.

You’ll be expected to deliver accurate and relevant news items to our readers. Our readership includes the pioneers of the crypto world, the early adopters, and those who are crypto-curious: the common denominator is that they’re hunting for smart and informed journalism. We strongly emphasize engaging writing that caters to a highly-intelligent audience.

Ideal applicants are deeply passionate about all things crypto and finance-related and enjoy brokering conversations about how digital currencies are altering the public perception about how money is classified and used. 

You will work alongside the Markets editors to pitch topics, carry out independent research, and parse through on-chain data and traditional markets data to identify breaking trends that Cointelegraph can report on quickly. 

You should be comfortable covering breaking news related to cryptocurrency price action, derivatives market data, and on-chain data.

Ideally, you will be available Monday through Friday from 10 a.m - 5 p.m EST and there will be opportunities to cover weekend shifts.

Location: US, fully remote

Salary: negotiable
