Washington Post seeks breaking news tech/business reporter in San Francisco
The Washington Post is seeking a breaking news writer based in our San Francisco office.
This reporter will play a critical role in our strategy for aggressive and insightful coverage of business news. We are looking for a clean writer who has the experience and knowledge to determine what’s compelling about a breaking news story and then write it quickly and clearly. This person will be heavily focused on technology news, but he or she may write about other late-breaking business, economics or markets news when warranted.
Beyond jumping on breaking news, this reporter will also be asked to update a story over the course of the day or turn it into a broader piece, sometimes working with a beat reporter. The breaking-news reporter will likely start in the early afternoon.
This reporter will be part of a significant expansion of our technology team, which will include the hiring of reporters, editors and video journalists in San Francisco, Seattle and our Washington newsroom.
Interested candidates should send a resume, cover letter and three clips to David Cho David.Cho@washpost.com, Zachary Goldfarb Zachary.Goldfarb@washpost.com, Christina Passariello Christina.Passariello@washpost.com, or Tracy Grant Tracy.Grant@washpost.com by Nov. 9.
