Observer seeks a tech and media reporter

May 12, 2024

Posted by Chris Roush

Observer is looking for a reporter to cover innovation, leadership and power in the most exciting industries of our time, whether it’s generative A.I., social media platforms, electric vehicles, space tourism, and climate technologies.

This role will be perfect for an early- to mid-career generalist looking to develop expertise and authority in certain beats. The ideal candidate should have an insatiable curiosity about these industries and an established network of sources in some of them. They should have a good understanding of the broader worlds of business, corporate finance and economy and be able to jump on breaking news at the first opportunity while willing to dig deeper on bigger stories.

At its core, this beat will be about how the most innovative minds in emerging industries come up with ideas and make things happen. We’re looking for a reporter who can see the big picture but embraces the details and is entrepreneurial in finding and pitching stories.

We’re looking for a reporter with:

– Two to five years of newsroom experience, preferably business journalism.

– A facility for writing both breaking news and longer enterprise stories.

– The ability to attend and cover industry events.

– Comfort with economic data and financial filings.

– An eagerness to find and pitch story ideas on a daily basis.

– High journalistic standards, attention to detail, and the skeptical heart of a fact-checker.

This position is based in New York City and pays between $60,000 and $75,000 annually. It is limited to U.S.-based applicants.

To apply, please send your resume to jobs@observer.com along with three to five writing samples or a link to a personal website/portfolio.
