Bloomberg seeks tech startup reporter in San Francisco

October 10, 2014

Posted by Chris Roush

Bloomberg News seeks a dynamic, energetic and intellectually curious reporter in San Francisco to cover the Wild West of technology startups.

The reporter will be responsible for breaking news and crafting features about company financings, getting ahead of technology and funding trends among young companies, profiling interesting entrepreneurs, and digging into the sometimes unconventional culture of startups that are often run by twentysomething dropouts.

The reporter is also responsible for uncovering the underside of startup land, where due diligence and governance are slim and transparency is opaque. Adept at breaking news and cultivating sources, the applicant must possess excellent writing skills, a voracious appetite for reporting all angles of a story, and a can-do attitude that is both competitive and collaborative.

-Bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience
-Experience working in a real-time news environment
-Minimum of three years of business journalism experience at a major newspaper or wire service is preferred
-Ability to write quickly and concisely under deadline pressure
