The Kansas City Business Journal is looking for a reporter with an eye for what’s next. The beat focuses on technology and entrepreneurs — two rich areas in this market. The local tech scene ranges from Sprint to a thriving app development cluster. On the startup side, Kansas City is the home of the nation’s foremost foundation focused on entrepreneurship and has set a goal of becoming the nation’s most entrepreneurial city.
Develop a source network and report stories in formats ranging from social media posts, to video, to online stories and blogs, to centerpiece stories for our print edition. We’re looking for someone who will own these beats by developing a deep source network and consistently beating the competition through brains, savvy and persistence.
The position requires someone driven by intellectual curiosity. Particularly, we need someone who combines traditional journalism skills in sourcing and writing with the flexibility to take a story from tweet to full-fledged cover package.
Two to five years of journalism experience, preferably with experience in multimedia journalism and business journalism.
