Job Description

The Washington Post is seeking a tech policy reporter who can break news that helps readers understand the intensifying relationship between Washington and the technology industry.

We are seeking a journalist who can mine sources within the agencies that regulate technology - the Federal Communications Commission and the Federal Trade Commission - as well as related congressional committees. This reporter also should be prepared to cover major trends and develop enterprise in the arenas that these government bodies watch, including telecommunications, net neutrality, 5G, broadband, privacy and antitrust.

A successful candidate should be prepared to deliver scoops large and small while explaining what these developments mean for industry and consumers. They should be comfortable grappling with the often-complicated details of technology policy and writing about them in engaging ways. They also should be able to craft stories that employ a variety of storytelling techniques to engage readers. A collaborative spirit is essential.

This position is based in our Washington newsroom. Once we resume normal operations, it will not be eligible for remote work.

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.
