The ideal candidate would consider themselves both a photographer and a journalist with excellent news judgement who is curious and passionate about what’s going on in the world of tech. Business Insider is also looking for someone with:

  • Experience taking and editing original photos
  • The ability to work at a fast pace as part of a team
This is a full-time position based in San Francisco.
