Job Description

The Washington Post is seeking a creative thinker and talented writer to explore the world of technological innovation.

The sky's the limit with this job, which lends itself to topics that extend beyond Silicon Valley. Profound and rapid advancements in artificial intelligence, machine learning and automation are obvious targets, as are the latest ideas for combating or adapting to climate change. Virtually any new product of consequence - or fascinating adjustments to old products - would qualify. The successful candidate also would be expected to develop sources in the sciences and academia to write about innovations that are still in the brilliant-idea stage.

This reporter would populate our innovations vertical with at least two stories per week. But there is ample room for producing ambitious, ground-breaking reports from technology's cutting edges and for experimenting with a variety of story formats.

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.

Candidates should upload a resume and cover letter to our jobs portal by Nov. 1. All application materials can be uploaded to the same field. Your cover letter should be addressed to Business Editor Lori Montgomery, Deputy Business Editor Zachary Goldfarb, Tech Editor Christina Passariello and Tech Policy Editor Alexis Sobel Fitts.
