Job Description

Reuters, the news and media division of Thomson Reuters, is the world’s largest international multimedia news provider reaching more than one billion people every day. Reuters provides trusted business, financial, national, and international news to professionals via Thomson Reuters desktops, the world's media organizations, and directly to consumers at

Reuters is seeking a sharply focused, relentlessly driven journalist who is passionate about breaking news to join the U.S. energy team, helping cover the decade’s most important story: the shale oil revolution that has redrawn domestic and international crude trade and led to record U.S. oil production. The position will focus on uncovering news about the people and infrastructure moving and processing surging volumes of domestic crude.

As part of a team of a dozen reporters covering North American oil, the successful candidate will also be expected to produce enterprising scoops and unearth hidden aspects of the opaque, dynamic crude oil market. Assessing prices is also part of the role. The reporter will need to develop deep contacts in the secretive industry to master complex arbitrage activity, understand how traders can profit from volatile shifts in fundamentals and write authoritatively about market trends – before our competitors do. With a strong source base and growing expertise, the reporter will be expected to produce exclusive news that will set the agenda not only for our core energy market users, but also for smart financial professionals across the world.


  • A proven track record developing deep sources and breaking exclusive news
  • Willingness to relentlessly pursue scoops of fact and insight in an opaque, secretive industry
  • Strong writing, with an ability to clearly explain technical subjects to a financially sophisticated audience
  • Proven ability to work closely and collaboratively as part of a diverse, driven team spanning multiple regions
  • Minimum 3 years journalism experience or degree
  • Energy market expertise preferable but not required

This role will be based in Houston, Texas.
