The largest business and financial news site in the world, with unrivaled access to data, insights and original editorial content.

Yahoo Finance, a Yahoo brand, is a leading business and financial news platform for retail investors to make investment decisions, with unrivaled access to financial data, insights, and original editorial content. Yahoo Finance has a user base of 100M global unique monthly users that return to our platform to keep track of their portfolios and stay up-to-the-minute with the latest financial news and information.

In Canada, the growing team is seeking to become the go-to destination for both breaking financial news and distinctive, insightful stories about the Canadian business and economic landscape, as well as industry changes that thought leaders, influencers, and everyday readers will find indispensable. Our goal is to deliver these stories in ways that are both smart and accessible.

A Little About You

We are looking for a Finance reporter with the strongest reporting skills -- someone who relishes breaking business and economic news. We're looking for someone who is an obsessive cultivator of sources and is always trying to dig below the surface to get to the real story. You will have extensive experience reporting on Canadian and global markets and the economy, and be able to tell complex financial stories in an imaginative, entertaining, and engaging way.

This role will also see you partner with other Yahoo Finance editorial teams around the world - particularly the US and UK - to share your content, ideas and expertise.

Responsibilities:

  • Report financial stories that add real value to the news and will engage readers online.

  • Report and write stories about the Canadian economy, and general market coverage.

  • Report and write stories that people want to share.

  • Develop innovative ways to tell stories, using the latest technology platforms.

  • Represent Yahoo Finance at live events and conferences

  • Do the kind of in-depth reporting projects that will garner Yahoo Finance awards and other industry accolades.

  • Assist in the use of data analytics to understand Yahoo Finance's audience and interpret that data to inform editorial strategy -- particularly when it comes to SEO and reaching new audiences.

Qualifications:

  • 3+ years of experience with a journalism or digital media background

  • Excellent knowledge of financial markets and passion for the field of financial and economic reporting

  • The ability to report competitively and accurately

  • The ability to write clearly

  • The ability to work collegially and collaboratively with members of the team

  • The highest ethical standards

  • A strong desire to innovate
