BuzzFeed News is hiring a technology reporter for its award winning tech and business desk.
The job will require you to develop and own a beat, break news, and spin up features. This is a job for someone eager to hold tech to account and to unearth stories about the unrestrained power of an industry not easily reigned in by industrial era laws.
The tech desk’s goal is to produce revelatory, accountability-focused journalism through rigorous reporting and vivid narratives, with an eye toward attaining real world impact. We want to change policy, shape public discourse, and expose wrongdoers. But we also want to tap into the joy, weirdness, and wonder of the internet
BuzzFeed News’s Tech and Business desk is reporter-driven. Working closely with your editors you will dig up stories no one else is telling, and report them out. You will conceive long-term and short-term story ideas with clear and compelling angles. You will leap into big news events, finding the angle on which you are the expert. We will help you rigorously bullet-proof your stories, so that they are unassailable. One benefit of working here is that we will provide you ample runway for deep investigative and enterprise work. You will steer the conversation around the issues you write about.
BuzzFeed News’'s Tech and Business desk is a highly ambitious one, and successful candidates will share that drive and passion. You should have at least a few years experience in journalism, with a record of working on breaking news and enterprise coverage. You should have a demonstrated ability to cultivate sources and tell stories in ways that reach the widest possible audience. You should be a persistent reporter with strong writing skills and capable of owning a narrative. You should be a willing and generous collaborator. You should be nimble when it comes to breaking news. You should enjoy fun; we have a lot of it.
