As some of you saw, Reorg Research was publicly announced earlier this week. It's a project I've been working on for over a year and its been amazing seeing the response from the distressed community. In addition to a revolutionary technology and data offering that is changing the way distressed debt research is done on a daily basis (whether it be hedge fund analysts and PMs, investment bankers, desk analysts, or law associates), Reorg Research, in the future, will be offering an incredibly insightful and timely intelligence product on distressed situations, in and out of the court. This isn't just the information you find from other providers of distressed news. Instead, I plan to offer something completely unique in the industry that will be enormously beneficial to our subscriber base.
To that end, I am looking for one or two especially talented bankruptcy reporters to join the company.
This is an opportunity for an enterprising reporter to get in on the ground floor of a financial media startup already with a large following and unique position within the marketplace. The successful candidate will work alongside a mix of distressed analysts and journalists with years of experience reporting and working in the restructuring. We’re looking for a dogged reporter with proven skills and working knowledge of the bankruptcy space.
Most of the work will include hitting the phone to develop and maintain relationships with professionals across various business disciplines. Significant time will be spent following the bankruptcy docket of companies in your coverage and reporting/synthesizing bankruptcy filings alongside financial and legal professionals to determine trading and process implications. It will also entail listening in to court cases and reporting in real-time on contentious and dramatic bankruptcy proceedings.This position is perfect for a journalists looking to move to a research analyst role.
This is a full-time salaried position with benefits and definite room for advancement as the company grows.
