Buffalo News seeks a tech reporter

Posted by Chris Roush

The Buffalo News seeks a reporter to cover technology and startups in Western New York.

Buffalo’s tech scene is growing fast – and could have an outsized impact on the region’s economy.

The region has made strides to invest in startups with early-stage financing, more venture capital access and the start of a more entrepreneurial culture. But there is a long way to go – and questions about whether there is enough tech talent.

This reporter will cover the startup and technology scene, from the growth of the city’s first “unicorn” to the impact of a downtown technology hub created by the region’s biggest bank.

Candidates should have significant enterprise reporting experience using sources, public records and data to identify stories and trends, as well as a proven ability to break news, turn around in-depth stories on tight deadlines and juggle the demands of reaching a digital audience. This reporter should have clips that show a knack for explaining why it all matters and providing the bigger context.

The Buffalo News is an award-winning news organization with the largest staff of journalists in the region. We have a history of breaking the area’s big stories and investing in the stories that matter.

Why Buffalo? The region is a lot more than chicken wings and the Buffalo Bills. The city has seen a resurgence that makes it an exciting time to work and live here. Aside from professional sports teams, the city has a philharmonic, a growing waterfront, a burgeoning medical campus and plenty of attitude. Not to mention Niagara Falls, beautiful hikes and ski slopes all within a short drive.
