Washington Post seeks a deputy tech policy editor
The Washington Post is looking for a deputy technology policy editor. This editor will help lead a team of reporters who write about government regulatory actions and how technology companies are working to shape those policies. Coverage areas include antitrust, cybersecurity, privacy, net neutrality, disinformation campaigns and telecom.
The ideal candidate will help reporters uncover scoops and identify enterprise opportunities. Talents should include the ability to quickly craft breaking news stories and alerts, while also taking a thoughtful approach to editing sophisticated enterprise stories that employ a variety of storytelling techniques to engage our readers. We are looking for someone who has an appreciation for the intricacies of technology policy but can make sure our stories are accessible.
This person will direct The Post’s Technology 202 newsletter, which will require a Sunday-to-Thursday work schedule, and will work on a team led by San Francisco-based Technology Editor Christina Passariello, and report to Washington-based Technology Policy Editor Mark Seibel.
Extensive experience in technology coverage is not required, but enthusiasm for the subject matter, and strong line-editing and conceptual skills are necessary to succeed in this position.
This position is based in our Washington newsroom. Once we resume normal operations, it will not be eligible for remote work.
The Post strives to provide its readers with high-quality, trustworthy news and information while constantly innovating. That mission is best served by a diverse, multi-generational workforce with varied life experiences and perspectives. All cultures and backgrounds are welcomed.
Interested candidates should send a resume and cover letter outlining a vision for the role to our jobs portal by Feb. 22. The cover letter should be addressed to Business Editor David Cho, Deputy Business Editor Zachary Goldfarb, Technology Editor Christina Passariello, and Managing Editors Tracy Grant and Krissah Thompson.
