San Francisco Business Times seeks tech reporter
The San Francisco Business Times, the Bay Area’s leading source of business news, is seeking an aggressive and creative reporter to take on the technology and innovation beat.
We’re looking for someone who can source relentlessly, break news before it happens and tell readers what it means on all of our platforms — web, social media, video and print.
Reporters must own the beat audience and create a conversation with readers. They must be comfortable writing breaking news, blogging about technology and writing longer analytical cover stories for the weekly print edition. They must meet or exceed goals relating to audience-engagement such as page views, unique users, repeat visits, direct traffic, social media followings and growth, paid print subscribership, email newsletter circulation growth, event attendance, and other such measures.
Strong journalism skills – source building, sharp interviewing techniques, strong analytical and investigative reporting skills, clear writing, document use – and online and social media know-how.
At least two years reporting experience at a newspaper or online news site preferred and a bachelor’s degree. Recent graduates must have strong internship or newspaper experience.
