WSJ seeks tech/telecom reporter in London
The Wall Street Journal is looking for an experienced journalist to break news and connect the dots as our technology, media and telecommunications reporter, based in London.
The successful candidate should be an experienced news breaker, capable of writing everything from quick headlines and fills–tapped out on the iPhone as news breaks—to deep dive stories about industry trends, challenges and leaders and personalities from around Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
The reporter will be expected to work closely with our EMEA tech team, and tech, telco and media colleagues in San Francisco, New York and Asia, as well as with bureau chiefs and bureau reporters across our own coverage area.
Some big coverage threads we expect to dominate in the coming months and years: the tensions and accommodations between U.S. tech giants and the host of governments, regulators and industries in Europe that have become increasingly alarmed with the former’s economic clout.
We expect the already-frenzied consolidation of the telecoms sector here to continue, as companies race to transition amid the changing landscape. We also want to write about the tech startup scene in London, as well as tech- and telco-related sectors in which Europe is punching above its weight: gaming, fintech and artificial intelligence.
Please note only candidates requested for interview will be contacted.
