Pedestrian Group/Full-time

Sydney
Melbourne
Australia

Pedestrian Group (Winner – Publishing Company of the Year, Mumbrella Publish Awards 2021) is seeking a talented and knowledgeable Cryptocurrency Reporter to join the launch team for Australia’s first Web3-focused publication.

Reporting to the Managing Editor and working closely with the Head of Editorial, the Cryptocurrency Reporter will keep our community up to date on the social transformation that digital currencies bring, producing unbiased news, in-depth analysis, insightful opinion pieces and long-form investigations.

The right candidate will have an extensive knowledge of the industry, a solid existing database of key contacts, and a genuine interest in exploring the best (and worst) of the industry through an impartial journalistic lens.

The Cryptocurrency Reporter will be required to:

  • Write multiple editorial posts per day
  • Pitch, research, and produce varied forms of content, including long-form journalistic investigations and short-form guides
  • Analyse and assess on-chain and traditional markets data to identify trends on which we can provide thoughtful commentary
  • Stay up to date with a fast-moving space, and be fully immersed in the world of cryptocurrency
  • Conduct in-depth interviews with founders, creatives, and key thought leaders
  • Engage with our community across multiple social touchpoints, including Discord, Twitter, LinkedIn and more
  • Follow best practices for SEO and social optimisation

The position calls for someone with:

  • Deep knowledge of, and experience within, blockchain technology, with a strong emphasis on cryptocurrency and how it intersects with everything from culture to business
  • A genuine and sustained passion for technology and the future of the industry
  • The ability to sort fact from fiction, calling on both primary and secondary sources
  • An understanding of the financial regulatory environment in Australia
  • Exceptional attention to detail
  • Demonstrable writing experience within business markets
  • Enthusiasm for experimenting with new ways of storytelling (while the role is primarily text-based, experience doing on-camera work is a bonus)
  • A keen understanding of journalistic ethics

This is a full-time role based in Australia, and can be fully remote (though Pedestrian Group does have offices in both Sydney and Melbourne).

To apply, please submit your CV and cover letter detailing why you are the right fit for this role.

We can’t wait to meet you.
