Job Description

The Washington Post is looking for an energetic personal technology editor to join our technology team in San Francisco.

This editor will help lead a team of columnists and reporters who assess the impact of technology on our lives. From investigations to quick-turnaround pieces, reviews, how-to guides and videos, the team employs a wide range of story formats in its mission to make technology easily understandable to our growing audience.

The ability to coach reporters and columnists, such as helping them spot the bigger idea in product launches and announcements, is essential. Talents should also include anticipating what's buzzy in consumer technology, devising coverage plans for complex events and editing sophisticated features.

This person will report to Technology Editor Christina Passariello, and work with Deputy Technology Editor Laura Stevens. Once we resume normal operations, this position will not be eligible for remote work.

The ideal candidate will have some experience editing technology coverage. Enthusiasm, strong line-editing ability and conceptual skills are necessary to succeed in this position.

The Post strives to provide its readers with high-quality, trustworthy news and information while constantly innovating. That mission is best served by a diverse, multi-generational workforce with varied life experiences and perspectives. All cultures and backgrounds are welcomed.

Interested candidates should send a resume, three clips as PDFs and a cover letter outlining a vision for the role to our jobs portal by Feb. 22. All application materials can be uploaded to the same field. The cover letter should be addressed to Business Editor David Cho, Deputy Business Editor Zachary Goldfarb, Technology Editor Christina Passariello, and Managing Editors Tracy Grant and Krissah Thompson.
