As a headlines editor/monitor, you will be the front line of CoinDesk’s news operations, charged with sifting through a steady stream of content (blogs, media, press releases, websites, filings, central bank statements, tweets, etc.) and identifying important developments in the cryptocurrency space.
Upon spotting potential news, you will alert the assignment editor and/or the appropriate team. When the technology is ready to do so, you may also decide to send a link to the item and possibly a timely accurate flash headline, should the identified news item reach that level of importance.
You will also be responsible for the maintenance of the newsroom’s shared scraping tool that is used to surface potentially newsworthy items, adding or subtracting sources as needed, as well as maintaining the Twitter feed for the same reason.
Your mission: to ensure CoinDesk readers are fully up to date whenever and wherever something happens in the cryptocurrency industry and that all content is accurate, punctual and written in CoinDesk style.
You plan well for the things that can be anticipated and react quickly to the things that can’t.
The ideal candidate has at least five years of journalism experience and experience monitoring and/or sending flash headlines. Experience with the crypto sector or equities markets strongly preferred. You are a self– starter with an insatiable intellectual curiosity, a nose for news, and a can– do/collaborative attitude, who can both scan and write clear, concise, accurate headlines on tight deadlines.
Ideal location in Asia within Hong Kong/Singapore time zone. Shift would begin at either 9 am or 10 am HK time.
