Quartz seeks an experienced editor to lead its technology coverage, taking an entrepreneurial approach to defining our journalism in this area and working with a team of reporters focused on it.
This editor will help shape our efforts to take bracingly creative approaches to covering tech news. Developing fresh ways to look at technology and tech trends and translating them into interesting, provocative articles, with a solid grounding in data, is a central challenge of this job.
We'd look to this editor to identify people who deserve more attention, to see around corners to where technology and the tech business are heading, and to surface detailed examples that help readers understand what the technology industry is obsessing about, from the rise of AI to the existential crisis at Facebook, the rising dominance of Amazon, the diversity crisis in tech, and the ubiquity of fake news. The tech editor will be both excited about the fundamental potential of technology and startups, and thoughtful, critical, and creative in their coverage of them.
The ideal candidate will have a track record of high-impact editing and reporting, managing experience, and a sense of urgency about covering the technology sector's largest companies and their influence on the broader culture. This editor is cool under pressure, can edit quickly and accurately, buzzes with ideas, and is intellectually curious. They get a kick out of taking other people’s work and making it shine, like experimenting with formats other than the 700-word article, and are comfortable using data to tell a story.
We’re looking for candidates with 3-5 years of relevant experience, a strong grasp of technology trends, and a good feel for the rhythms of online news. International experience and languages other than English are a big plus.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, and five links to relevant work. The links matter most.
