Dow Jones Reporter, Google in SAN FRANCISCO, California

Job Description

The Wall Street Journal is seeking a reporter for one of the most fascinating and challenging business beats in journalism: covering Google and its parent, Alphabet.

Few companies in history have had as much impact on business and society as Google. Its operations extend far beyond its enormous, core search-and-advertising business. It is one of the world’s largest video distributors through YouTube, the largest smartphone-software supplier via Android, and one of the leaders in developing self-driving car technology.

Candidates should have a track record of dominating a difficult beat, including delivering important scoops and agenda-setting enterprise stories. Tech expertise isn’t required but interest in and ability to learn the subject quickly are essential. We are also looking for people facile with data and creative about storytelling in multiple forms.
