Fortune is hiring a reporter to bolster our tech coverage. We’re looking for a journalist who is fascinated by the way Big Tech and startups are rewriting the rules of business and reshaping society. This story has never been more important, and telling it correctly means getting inside the companies, understanding the leaders, and identifying the news and trends that aren’t in the press releases.

The ideal candidate is a self-starter who is excited by the opportunity to be part of a new team and will have an immediate impact on our coverage and on the news cycle. A solid grasp of business fundamentals is a must, as is a knack for developing sources and finding fresh, diverse perspectives that will enrich Fortune readers’ understanding of this critical industry at a critical time. This reporter should be motivated by scoops and industry-leading reporting that gets the power players in tech talking.

You will...

  • Report and write a mix of original stories, from quick-turnaround pieces and scoops to richly reported features and analysis
  • Develop your own beat to cover within the tech sector, and become the most authoritative reporter covering that beat
  • Generate story ideas through source relationships, shoe-leather reporting, and smart, public documents research
  • Participate in Fortune events and conferences, and occasionally write for the print magazine
  • Uphold Fortune’s standards of journalistic rigor, accuracy, and fairness

The right candidate:

  • Has experience covering business news as a beat reporter, preferably in the tech sector
  • Is highly motivated to break news and “get the story,” and responds to reporting obstacles as energizing challenges to overcome rather than roadblocks
  • Has a proven ability to develop sources inside and outside companies
  • Has strong writing chops and is adept at writing in various story formats and styles
  • Is an inherently curious and out-of-the box thinker, willing to learn on the go
  • Has experience in online publishing, SEO, and social media

Location: Our editorial team is based across time zones and international borders. This role can be based in the US, with a preference for San Francisco. If you’re based within commuting distance of one of our offices, there will be a minimum of 3 days/week in the office. 

Fortune’s perks and benefits include: 

  • 22 vacation days, 11 paid holidays and an honor-based sick leave policy 
  • Health, dental, and vision, coverage (90% paid for individuals and families), plus a high-deductible health plan option where Fortune contributes to a Health Savings Account (HSA) and a mental-health benefit 
  • 401(k) plan 
  • Generous parental leave 
  • Dependent care/health care/commuter FSAs, and cell phone benefits 
  • Tuition reimbursement program and other professional development resources 
  • An array of cultural initiatives including Employee Resource Groups and a mentorship program 
  • A commitment to an open, inclusive, and diverse work culture
