Investor’s Business Daily seeks tech reporter
Investor’s Business Daily is seeking a full-time technology reporter for its Silicon Valley bureau, located in Sunnyvale. The ideal candidate has a strong grasp of technology issues, an interest in the stock market and knowledge of financial statements. Candidates must understand how businesses and financial markets work and be familiar with key technologies, industry players, current conditions and trends.
We’re looking for people who are thorough, know how to find information, can win access to important people and can pull telling details from them once they land the interview. We want people who can recognize the not-so-obvious stories that no one else sees. Speed is essential to meet deadlines for the IBD newspaper and its website, Investors.com. We will provide training on using computer databases and stock charts to analyze technology companies and glean trends.

We offer an environment that encourages and rewards learning and professional growth, the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of how to invest successfully, and the prime location for any technology journalist, Silicon Valley.
At least five years of relevant journalism experience is preferred but will consider other candidates with strong skills. A four-year college degree is required.
Submit resume, cover letter and at least three writing samples to IBDnewsjobs@investors.com. Writing samples can be attached as Word documents or PDFs or pasted into the message. Please put Tech Reporter in the email subject field.
