The Washington Post is seeking a technology writer who will cover breaking news and write analysis about the biggest and most interesting tech stories.
This reporter, who will be based in our San Francisco bureau, will play a critical role in our strategy for aggressive and insightful coverage of technology. We are looking for a strong writer who has the experience and knowledge to determine what’s most compelling about a breaking news story and then write it quickly and accessibly. This writer should also pitch stories that will deepen our readers’ understanding of the trends, controversies and innovations that come out of the industry.
This person should use a variety of storytelling techniques – from straight news to quick analysis to the use of charts or FAQs – to engage our readers. The best candidates should be able to cover a variety of topics and have familiarity with the issues that underpin technology.
Interested candidates should send a resume, a cover letter outlining how they would approach the role and three clips (as pdfs) 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 Jan. 10.
