Quartz seeks a reporter to contribute to its coverage of the technology sector globally, with a focus on producing original takes on the news, reported scoops, and informed analysis.
Based in San Francisco or the greater Bay Area, you would be part of the growing Quartz team worldwide, and help shape our efforts to take bracingly creative approaches to covering business news. Developing fresh ways to look at technology and tech trends and translate them into interesting, provocative articles, with a solid grounding in data, is a central challenge of this job.
While Quartz covers technology with a global context, this position will heavily focus on companies and people based in Silicon Valley and San Francisco, including large firms like Google and Facebook, fast-growing startups, and the venture capital industry.
We'd look to you to identify people who deserve more attention, see around corners to where technology and the tech business are heading, and surface detailed examples that help readers understand what Silicon Valley is obsessing about. We'd want you to be both excited about the fundamental potential of technology and startups and thoughtful, critical, and creative in your coverage of them.
We are looking for someone with professional reporting experience, a facility with data, an entrepreneurial approach to their work, and the ability to convey curiosity and humor in their writing. The reporter should feel comfortable with using formats other than 700-word articles (such as shorter pieces, photos, and charts) when they’re better for efficiently and effectively getting a story across. International experience and languages are a plus.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, and five links to relevant work. The links matter most.
