Quartz seeks a reporter to write about the fast developing business and geopolitical stories from across the region, offering context and insight.
You might be assessing the economic impact of China’s millennials, analyzing the body language at the next Trump-Kim summit, exploring the regional nuances of China’s maneuvers in the South China Sea, or charting the might of a large regional company like Ant Financial or Softbank.
Underlying your coverage will be an appreciation for the advances and setbacks faced by Chinese companies trying to become truly global ones.
This reporter will also contribute frequently to the European edition of our flagship newsletter, the Daily Brief, and will at times collaborate with the bureau’s technology reporter on covering major tech stories.
