Staff Writer, Tech

Forbes Media - San Francisco, CA4.2

Full-time
Forbes Media is looking for Staff Writers to join its tech reporting team in San Francisco.

This is a key position covering Silicon Valley and one of the most exciting and dynamic sectors of the economy, with a focus on marquee companies including Amazon, Apple, Google or Uber, depending on the candidate’s strengths and interests and the SF bureau’s needs.

The candidate would be joining an award-winning team of more than half-a-dozen journalists on one of the most competitive beats in business journalism.

Responsibilities/Requirements:
The position affords the right candidate the opportunity to write short and long form articles for Forbes.com and Forbes magazine, and to experiment with new digital storytelling formats for mobile platforms.
The ideal candidate needs to be a self-starter with a demonstrated ability to develop stories and sources and chase scoops.
While experience covering tech is preferred, it is not required – but an interest and curiosity for understanding and explaining how the tech industry is changing the way we work, communicate, entertain ourselves and live is a must.

While the position is in San Francisco, top candidates who wish to work out of Forbes headquarters in Jersey City will be considered.
