WSJ seeks a Google/Alphabet reporter
The Wall Street Journal is seeking a reporter for one of the most fascinating and challenging business beats in journalism: covering Google and its parent company, Alphabet.
Few companies in history have had as much impact on business and society as Google. Beyond its enormous, core search-and-advertising business, it is one of the world’s biggest video distributors through YouTube, the largest smartphone-software supplier via Android, and one of the leaders in developing self-driving-car technology.
It is also faces a growing global backlash from lawmakers, regulators and users on multiple fronts, from its privacy practices to its market dominance to whether it manages the content on its platforms safely and fairly. That makes this a particularly compelling time to be covering Google and a great opportunity to do impactful work.
Candidates should have a track record of dominating a highly competitive beat, including delivering important scoops and agenda-setting enterprise stories. The right person also will have proven success collaborating with colleagues. Tech expertise isn’t required but interest in and an ability to learn the subject quickly are essential. We are also looking for people facile with data and creative about storytelling in multiple forms.
The position is based in San Francisco and is part of our internet/social media team, led by Brad Reagan.
