WSJ seeks a Samsung reporter in Seoul
The Wall Street Journal is looking for a creative reporter to cover Samsung Electronics and the global tech world where it roams.
The job, based in Seoul, sits right in the action. Your coverage would be at the intersection of economic fallout from the global pandemic, the U.S.-China trade dispute and the 5G arms race. Samsung’s fingerprints, as a manufacturer and supplier, exist on nearly every electronics gadget. This is a people-centric beat, covering consumers and sellers, leaders and followers, realists and futurists. You get to explain how technology affects people around the world.
We are looking for someone who can break news and drive the discussion about one of the world’s most recognizable tech giants. You should also envision the job beyond Samsung itself, using the company as a vessel to unlock stories in the U.S., Asia and elsewhere. The ideas can pop up wherever Samsung exists: a London art house cinema, an industrial park outside New Delhi or inside the American living room.
A working level proficiency of Korean is a plus, and knowing technology and the region would be beneficial. What’s most important is having the curiosity and intuition to see Samsung as more than a Korean company and tech as more than gadgetry. You’ll have the chance to pursue both enterprise stories and scoops, while collaborating with.a best-in-class global technology team. You will set yourself apart if you are facile with data and creative about storytelling in multiple forms.
