BISNOW is an industry leading, vertically integrated B2B platform serving the trillion-dollar commercial real estate industry across North America, the UK and Ireland.

Our mission is to inform, connect and advance the commercial real estate community to do more business.

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.

  • Covering breaking news and deeper enterprise reporting in the Bay Area’s commercial real estate industry.

  • Working with a local team of event producers and sales representatives to assist in the content of events.


  • 2+ years of experience in business journalism.
