Staff Reporter, Gizmodo
New York, NY
Gizmodo, Gizmodo Media Group’s leading authority on tech, gadgets, science, and geek culture, is looking for a Staff Reporter.
About the Company:
Gizmodo Media Group is the publisher of the web’s most original and fearless media brands, including Gizmodo, Earther, Kotaku, Lifehacker, Jezebel, Deadspin, Splinter, Jalopnik and The Root. As part of Fusion Media Group, we reach an audience of +120 million visitors a month — more than one-third of all Americans.
About the Role:
We’re looking for an experienced technology reporter to join our fast-paced, lively newsroom, reporting to the technology news, culture, policy, and investigations desk. You should have at least four years of newsroom experience and be excited to pitch stories in a variety of formats. We need a dynamic and versatile reporter; you should be able to balance the daily breaking news needs on your beat with long-form investigations.
More than anything, Gizmodo values approaching technology with a critical eye and avoiding the breathless, thoughtless fanfare that can often accompany Silicon Valley innovation. If you’re interested in asking big questions about who is making our technology, how they’re making it, and who it serves, then this job might be for you.
Have experience working at a major digital or print outlet with strong tech coverage
At least 4 to 5 years newsroom experience
Be comfortable writing analysis, breaking news, and investigative features
Demonstrated ability to break news in a core technology beat
Experience covering cybersecurity and privacy issues and/or Silicon Valley culture a plus
Have a go-to network of experts and sources for quick, authoritative comment
Experience scripting video is excellent, but not required
NYC- or SF-based reporters preferred
