INSIDER breaking news reporter (LA)

Editorial | Los Angeles, CA | Full Time

Job Description

If you're a diehard news junkie and social media obsessive, you could be the perfect fit for Business Insider's breaking news reporter position.

Breaking news reporters are responsible for following world events and reporting on them in real time across multiple social media platforms and on our website.

That means one day, you could be following every twist and turn in the New York prison break. The next, you'd be reporting on Facebook's plan to sell Oculus Rift in real time.

The ideal Breaking News Reporter:

  • Is an excellent storyteller  — he or she is good at taking complex current events and presenting them in a compelling and relatable way
  • Interprets news quickly and writes at lightning speed
  • Produces clean, clear copy
  • Lives for the thrill of getting faves on Twitter and likes on Instagram and Facebook

This is a full-time role based in our Los Angeles office. Business Insider offers competitive compensation packages complete with benefits.

Created for the digital generation, Business Insider is the largest business news site in the U.S. and one of the fastest-growing news brands in the world. We embrace the themes of positive change and innovation and use fast, fun, and informative storytelling to cover the business, tech, and finance news stories you need to know to work, play and live better.
