Job Description

The New York Times is seeking an ambitious reporter to delve into the world of crypto and fintech as these once esoteric and niche worlds go increasingly mainstream, remaking financial systems, governmental controls, creating opportunities for grift and raising regulatory headaches.

The reporter will lead investigative pieces, produce scoops and write features and profiles. The reporter must have a demonstrated ability to follow money trails and uncover people who purposely operate out of the limelight.

This is a beat that intersects with finance, government and regulation, venture capital, start-ups and technology, so an ability and willingness to collaborate is essential. Self starters with a sense of humor are welcome.

Location: The job can be based in New York or San Francisco. The job will be part of the tech desk/Business and report into the tech editors.
