Tech Reporter - Mashable

Editorial New York, New York


Description

Position at Mashable

Mashable is hiring an experienced and energetic Tech Reporter to cover all aspects of consumer technology, including news, product reviews, and service journalism.

The ideal candidate has a background in tech reporting and demonstrates a strong foundational knowledge of current events, trends, and gadgets. For example, the tech reporter isn’t just expected to know everything about the latest iPhone; they should know everything about all the iPhone models that came before, and be able to recount all the major bugs, breaches, and breakthroughs that got Apple to where it is today. 

The Tech Reporter needs to be highly motivated. A natural self-starter with spot-on news judgment and a knack for original, grabby angles. A strong reporter who writes with style and voice, and is comfortable appearing on camera across Mashable’s multiple platforms. We’re looking for someone who is also passionate about the news and culture surrounding technology and the tech industry, and they should love breaking down complicated topics for a general audience. 

The Tech Reporter will report to Mashable’s Tech Editor and will ideally be based in the New York City area.

  • A natural self-starter and organized professional who thrives in a fast-paced environment.
  • A team player who values the success of the Mashable team.

  • A top-notch writer with a firm grasp of AP style and the ability to quickly turn around clean copy.
  • Well-versed in SEO and a variety of social media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat.

The Day-to-Day

  • Review new products and software releases. 
  • Write breaking news hits and longer features. 
  • Collaborate with Tech Editor on daily priorities for editorial coverage.
  • Help track product releases and assist with managing a production calendar for reviews.
