Quartz seeks design reporter

December 18, 2014

Posted by Chris Roush

Quartz seeks a reporter to lead its coverage of design globally, with a focus that includes visual design, product design, corporate branding, urban planning, and architecture.

You would be part of the growing Quartz team in New York, and help shape our efforts to take bracingly creative approaches to covering business news. Design topics we’ve covered recently have ranged from the origins of emoji, to an analysis of targets used by armies for target practice, the battle to restore a retro-futuristic Soviet landmark in Moscow, and the design lessons taught at Apple’s secret in-house university. Developing fresh ways to look at design news and architecture announcements, and corporate and product design trends and to translate them into interesting, provocative articles, with a solid grounding in data, is a central challenge of this job.

We are looking for someone with professional reporting experience, a facility with data, an entrepreneurial approach to their work, and the ability to convey curiosity and subtle humor in their writing. The reporter should feel comfortable with using formats other than 700-word articles (such as shorter pieces, photos, and charts) when they’re better for efficiently and effectively getting a story across. International experience and languages are a plus.

To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, and five links to relevant work. The links matter most.
