BISNOW OVERVIEW
Bisnow is the commercial real estate industry's leading, vertically integrated B2B media platform, covering North America, Canada, the UK and Ireland.  We serve the CRE industry through award-winning news and publications, renowned events, wide-ranging marketing services, specialized recruitment solutions, and intelligent sales enablement tools.

Our platform enables our audience to do more business by engaging more than 1.5M subscribers and convening more than 100K commercial real estate professionals every year. We host hundreds of events, publish thousands of thought-provoking stories, drive qualified leads, and create opportunities that make deals happen. At Bisnow, we love to think globally, but connect and inform our audience hyper-locally.

THE BISNOW NEWSROOM
We take the news seriously, blending hard news scoops with analytical enterprise stories and award-winning accountability journalism. Our newsroom is small but ambitious and strives to find creative ways to cover the commercial real estate industry. We hold a hard line between our news team and BISNOW’s sales and events arms, freeing our reporters to write heavy-hitting stories without fear of sponsor influence. Our reporters dive deep on a local beat but also have the opportunity to write stories for a national audience and work on long-term special projects of national or international significance.   

Key Responsibilities

    • Writing roughly eight articles a week of varying lengths and types, including covering Bisnow’s produced events.
    • Covering breaking news and deeper enterprise reporting in DFW’s commercial real estate industry.
    • Working a beat, traveling around the DFW area covering the latest trends, personalities and news related to the commercial real estate industry.
    • Infiltrating the CRE industry — turning arcane data into useful and entertaining information while maintaining personal relationships with lots of leads and sources.
    • Having an intimate knowledge of DFW’s CRE business — knowing where the major players are located, what deals they are responsible for and what events they attend.
    • Working with the global news teams on major projects and national series.
    • Working with a local team of event producers and sales representatives to assist in the content of events.

What are we looking for?

    • Great writing skills.
    • Excellent news judgment.
    • Digital experience and at least five years of experience in business journalism.
    • The personality of a self-starter and must be a thoughtful and articulate writer who is interested in building his or her voice and journalistic brand on Bisnow.com.
    • A commitment to seeking diverse stories and sourcing.
    • Must have ability to travel around the DFW area, and must have availability to attend/cover Bisnow-hosted events.
    • Though not required, it would be a plus if the candidate has knowledge of commercial real estate, urban and community planning and urban design, and especially contacts within those industries.
