Bloomberg job: Auto reporter in Tokyo

The position is for a reporter to cover the Japanese auto industry, focusing on Toyota (the world’s biggest carmaker), Honda and Nissan. This is a high-profile global beat that requires excellent writing/reporting skills and the ability to communicate with team members around the world from Beijing to Frankfurt to Los Angeles and with producers in our TV division.

A high competence in Japanese language and strong ability to write in English is required; experience in journalism is preferable. Candidates need not be in Tokyo; we can pay to move them from anywhere in the world.

The job offers opportunities for travel around Japan and the rest of Asia, particularly China and India. We are looking for creative self-starters to move markets with breaking news, investigate big-picture trends and write colorful features. Reporters are also given flexibility to write fun news features on Japanese arts & leisure, sports, politics, real estate, you name it.

Auto stories frequently appear in Bloomberg Business Week, and reporters will be asked to contribute to our monthly Bloomberg Markets magazine.

Very competitive compensation and benefits offered.
