Slate is hiring a full-time staff writer to contribute to its business and technology coverage.

We’re looking for a sharp, curious, and omnivorous journalist who can report on and analyze the impact that the biggest forces of the modern economy have on our lives. How exactly we define the job—the companies, innovations, trends, and people it focuses on—will depend to a degree on the candidate’s interests. We’re flexible. Our main expectation is that the writer interpret, probe, and drive the news, and do so with originality and verve. Slate’s offices are in D.C. and Brooklyn, but we are considering applications from all over. This is a position covered under a collective bargaining agreement between Slate and the Writers Guild of America, East.

Key Responsibilities

    • Write multiple times a week
    • Pitch stories regularly, whether pithy arguments or reported features
    • Collaborate with a close-knit team of journalists on various projects


    • At least two years’ experience working in technology or business journalism
    • A deep well of story ideas
    • A drive to explain complex or opaque changes in technology or the economy to a general audience
    • Clean, clear, and distinctive prose on deadline
