We’re looking for our next ambitious journalist at Endpoints News.

This is an editorial position with significant daily news writing responsibility. As a team we publish 6-9 articles throughout the day as biopharma news breaks. These stories are neatly packaged into 1 fully contained daily news report, which is delivered by email to over 30,000 biotech and pharmaceutical industry pros around 11am ET.  

Your primary role would be to contribute a few of those stories daily as assigned by editors, in the Endpoints style (see here for a chronological list) that we’ve now been at for over 2 years. And while news writing and reporting will be your primary task, as a startup, we really take that team thing seriously, so you might find yourself pitching in to copy-edit a few stories and learn adjacent skills that’ll help both you and the team grow and serve the audience better.

At Endpoints your stories will be read far and wide by an elite audience employing cutting-edge science in the pursuit of profit and curing human disease. Most of our articles are not paywalled, which means they’re easily discoverable by Google to brand new audiences, on top of the core audience of biotech and pharma newsmakers that’s been following the founding team’s work for well over a decade.

Candidates should have proven business reporting and writing chops and can turn good copy around on a tight deadline. They understand business concepts and know a good news story when they see it.

Endpoints employs a virtual office with 11 staffers currently stationed around the world, tied together by Slack, Google Apps, and other familiar digital tools of the trade. We expect the Newswriter to report no later than 6-7am ET daily, and to also be available when the market closes. Remote candidates with relevant business reporting experience are encouraged to apply. (We also have a small bureau in Lawrence, Kansas. Candidates in the vicinity will be given extra consideration.)

Interested writers should send an introductory email, attach a current resume, and send at least 3 clips — URLs preferably but PDFs will do if your work is behind a paywall. We pay a competitive salary with benefits and two weeks paid vacation, plus you’ll have off all market holidays and the week between Christmas and New Year’s. Come work for a globally recognized journalism startup and join a winning team that works hard to achieve ambitious goals.
