Job Description

Buyouts Insider, publisher of Buyouts Magazine, Venture Capital Journal, and PE HUB community website, seeks a research assistant to unearth news on deal-making and fund-raising in the venture capital and private equity markets. This is an exciting opportunity for someone who is passionate about storytelling in both new and old media. The research editor scours the Internet—wire services, blog sites, government databases, press releases—for news.

He or she then writes compelling headlines and brief summaries of news items for our subscribers, enters relevant information in our database, and then gets the word out, and a discussion going, via social media such as Twitter and social networking sites such as LinkedIn. In addition, the research editor puts together a daily tip sheet for the reporters on the editorial team, and pitches in on related data-related projects.

The right candidate is a quick-study on financial topics, a careful writer with an eye for detail, and someone who can master a content management systems such as WordPress. Fluency with Word, Excel, Picture Manager, PowerPoint, and Adobe Acrobat is a must. Familiarity with private equity and/or venture capital as well as experience with social media platforms such as Twitter and LinkedIn would be a plus.
