Music Business Worldwide – Reporter / Senior Reporter / Markets Editor (Remote)

The music business has grown up. Via a flurry of big-money financing and IPOs, music has become a hot commodity for investors who like the dependable returns that streaming has created.

Music Business Worldwide, the world’s leading B2B title for the music industry, is well known for diving behind the numbers to provide unparalleled fiscal analysis, as well as commentary of key trends.

We are read (and relied upon) by the most influential music investors and music rights executives across the globe.

Now, we are hiring for a financially literate analysis hot-shot to join our team as Reporter / Senior Reporter / Markets Editor.

Reporting to the MBW Editor, a key part of the role will see you regularly writing news/analysis coverage of earnings calls, investor presentations and business announcements for multiple publicly-traded entertainment companies.

You have:
  • At least three years’ experience covering and analysing an industry/industries for a high-level B2B audience
  • A proven track record of financial literacy in editorial coverage
  • Experience of covering public company financials including, particularly, quarterly earnings calls

Don’t worry if your knowledge of the music industry isn’t super-sophisticated: That, we can teach you. It’s what you then do with this knowledge that matters.


You are:
  • A brilliant journalist who is as comfortable delving into earnings reports as they are breaking industry news
  • A super-smart analyst of markets
  • A natural-born networker who’s comfortable chewing the fat with the most influential executives in any given business
