Dow Jones Tech & Family Columnist in NEW YORK, New York

Job Description:

The Wall Street Journal is creating a new weekly column focusing on technology and families. We are looking for an authoritative columnist who will set the agenda on the impact of new technologies on child development, teenage life, intergenerational relationships and family life in general.

As the first generation to grow up with the iPhone, today's kids are rewriting the rules of childhood. Social media and artificial intelligence are shaping their identities and defining their relationships in entirely new ways.

The ideal candidate has been a beat reporter who has dominated their coverage area with original ideas, an authoritative voice and engaging writing. An understanding of how technology works is secondary to an ability to conceptualize fresh and lively columns. We envision this column having a major video component, so skill and comfort with video storytelling is a plus.

This person will join a group of columnists in the Journal's Technology Bureau and will write mainly for the Life & Arts section.

The role can be based in New York or elsewhere in the U.S. for the right candidate.
