The Information is a three-year old subscription-only publication dedicated to entirely original reporting on technology and its impact across industries. We have about a dozen experienced reporters with a track record in hard-hitting journalism. And we're growing quickly. Politico called us "a well respected, scoopy journalism outfit and a must-read for many global business elites." Fortune, Vanity Fair and Digiday have also recently featured our business as an innovator in media.
We have reporting positions open right now:
The Information is looking for a reporter to cover the telecommunications and media industries.
As AT&T’s purchase of Time Warner and Verizon’s acquisition of Yahoo and AOL demonstrates, the telecom-media industries have converged. And more upheaval is on the horizon. Verizon and AT&T are both losing subscribers to a rejuvenated T-Mobile, while cable operators Comcast and Charter have teamed up on wireless. More combinations with media companies are possible: Verizon has signaled it would be open to deals with companies like Disney and CBS. Still open is what Charlie Ergen’s Dish Network does with its spectrum and whether Google goes further with Project Fi.
The Information’s telecom-media reporter will be responsible for both breaking news and writing in-depth features on these fast-developing industries. At The Information, we don’t rewrite press releases. Reporters are free to delve deeply into how companies and industries work to set the agenda.
Candidates should have experience in covering either telecom or media, with a demonstrated ability to break news and write in-depth features that go beyond the plain-vanilla reporting that dominates the news media today.
More than any other companies, Facebook and Alphabet are changing the face of the internet. From driving advances in artificial intelligence to cornering the market for digital advertising, the two are the most important companies in Silicon Valley. The Information is looking for an enterprising reporter to join our team and cover the two companies.
This is a challenging assignment with enormous opportunity for the right person. Facebook and Alphabet each dominate news coverage of technology. Both companies have their tentacles in a variety of industries aside from their core businesses, ranging from self-driving cars to messaging services to video, health care and the future of cities. The Facebook/Alphabet reporter at The Information can set the agenda for what’s truly important at the companies. That requires deep sourcing and a need to not be distracted by the day-to-day noise that so often constitutes coverage of the companies.
Candidates should have experience in covering tech, with a demonstrated ability to break news and write in-depth features that go beyond the plain-vanilla reporting that dominates the news media today.
We have excellent benefits, including:
- Company-paid health coverage for employees and their dependents;
- A generous parental leave policy for new parents;
- 401(K) program
- Three weeks of paid leave every year;
- A gym and fitness stipend;
- A highly professional, inclusive, diverse workplace with a zero-tolerance policy for harassment
If you are interested in either position, send a resume, cover letter and clips to firstname.lastname@example.org.
