Greenville (S.C.) News seeks tech reporter
The Greenville News in Greenville, S.C., is looking for a technology-minded journalist to report on Greenville’s innovators, entrepreneurs and the bustling startup community.
Greenville is home to a rich mix of visionaries, builders, entrepreneurs and independent small business owners. The cornerstone of this beat will be in chronicling the new products, ideas and visionaries in the heart of South Carolina’s Upstate region.
Reporters should be adept at personality profiles and great storytelling. …but this is more than a soft news beat. Be prepared to look at trends in labor statistics, pore over patent applications and engage in thoughtful analysis of an innovation-based economy.
Greenville is a regional economic powerhouse and an incubator to some of South Carolina’s most innovative businesses. The perfect candidate will be just as at home in quirky co-working spaces downtown as they are in the wood-paneled office suites of Fortune 500 companies like BMW, Michelin, GE and Lockheed Martin.
This beat dovetails with a second economic trends reporter and functions as part of a reporter-centric news operation that values innovative storytelling and engaging with our audience in settings that range from coffee shops and craft breweries to group meetups and large-scale forums.
While we’re looking for excellent reporters and writers, your ability to handle a camera in a pinch and shoot video is a plus! We admire versatility.
