Ideal candidates must be able to explain those things in plain language to readers who are not financial experts, keeping the use of jargon to a minimum.

The finance writer will work closely with Caixin’s Chinese reporters and editors to organize and rewrite material they contribute, with an eye on different expectations of domestic and foreign audiences.
