New York Times seeks auto reporter
Business Day is looking for an enterprising, dynamic reporter who can establish leadership in covering the rapidly transforming automobile industry in all its dimensions.
The beat will be a window onto the Detroit automakers and foreign companies producing vehicles for the American market – as manufacturers, employers, marketers, style makers. It will explore what those companies are doing on environmental and safety issues, their interaction with regulators, and their role in the nation’s economy and international trade. But a major emphasis will be on providing insight into the ways traditional automakers and disruptive upstarts are reinventing models of ownership, propulsion and operation: ride-sharing, electric vehicles, self-driving technology.
The ideal candidate will have a background in automotive, economics and/or technology coverage as well as a record of distinguished beat reporting, including a proven ability to break news, spot trends, and develop illuminating, compelling features. The candidate should be adept at writing in a variety of formats, able to juggle deadline demands with long-term efforts, and both comfortable and creative with a full set of digital and multimedia tools.
This Guild position will be based in the Detroit area.
