The New York Times is looking for an experienced journalist to cover the technology industry, everything from the companies to government policy and consumer trends, in Asia.

It is an expansive role, and a chance to explore some of the most globally important issues, the biggest and most innovative tech companies in the region, the geopolitical ramifications and divisions emanating from tech and more. As the world’s second-largest economy, China is a major part of the coverage. But the increasing roles of India, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore in the tech world  are also crucial components of the beat. We are looking for an entrepreneurial correspondent who can crisscross the area to create a body of work that both conjures local scenes and makes connections across nations.

The job involves both news and enterprise and requires a strong writer with the ability to juggle breaking news, live coverage, smart analysis and ambitious enterprise. We want someone eager to react quickly to news as necessary, but who is also able to write thoughtfully and deeply about important issues and events. Our ideal candidate will have experience working with a network of journalists in a variety of countries, a critical foundation for covering such a broad region.

Our ideal candidate will have some of these qualities:

  • Knowledge of business and tech news, as well as Asia and its place in the world.
  • International reporting experience for a global news organization.
  • Experience working in multiple languages.
  • A keen eye for news and other great stories, borne of experience reporting and writing.
  • Commitment to The New York Times’s standards and mission.

This position will be based in Seoul.
