Plug: Yahoo! Southeast Asia seeks finance producer

Ok, here’s one more job opening at Yahoo! Southeast Asia. I wanted to get this out the door before we head out for our holidays.

We’re looking for a producer to edit and curate compelling stories for our Singapore version of Yahoo! Finance.

The job is incredibly challenging: Identifying and delivering accurate, reliable and timely information to help our users make the best decisions in their financial investments.

This isn’t an entry-level position; you must have proven experience in producing and editing financial news stories. You may also have to write or commission blogs on finance and investments.

Technical experience isn’t necessary, but you’ll need to be comfortable working with a number of internet publishing tools. The position is based in Singapore and reports to the Managing Editor of Southeast Asia.

This is what we’re looking for in an ideal candidate:

  • A financial journalist with at least five years of writing, editing or production experience at news organizations such as Dow Jones, Reuters, Bloomberg or CNBC
  • Knowledge of the publicly listed companies in Singapore and commonly watched blue chip stocks
  • Reliable contacts in the financial services industry would be helpful
  • An understanding of social media and how to use it to distribute stories and engage a wider audience
  • Able to pitch great ideas for blog posts and articles relevant to the investment community in Singapore
  • Bachelor’s degree, preferably in journalism or communication

    If your experience fits what we’re after, please send your CV to:

    Alan Soon
    Managing Editor
