Location: Los Angeles, CA
The Business section has an immediate opening for a technology reporter, preferably based in Silicon Valley or San Francisco, to cover Apple and other high-tech firms as well as the region’s tech culture and economy.
The beat is among the most competitive and most important in business journalism. The ability to scoop our rivals and work closely with our Business section colleagues, especially those covering the entertainment industry and government regulators, is critical. The ideal candidate also must be able to step back to write compelling features about the latest tech celebrity, the ramifications of new tech gadgets and programs on the public and the industry, the ever-constant attempts to reduce our privacy and the life of the rich and would-be famous of Silicon Valley.
Experience covering technology is strongly preferred. Essential is a curiosity about the social impacts of technology and an ability to explain difficult concepts to a lay audience. The range of topics will be broad and can include quarterly earnings, technical advances, quirky features, profiles and long-form narratives. The reporter on this beat will file breaking news and other items to the Web, including the Tech Now blog, and will have great opportunities to land on A1 and interpret our increasingly connected lives in the 21st century.
