VentureBeat is looking for ace tech reporters in S.F. and NYC

Above: A typical day at the VB office is just like this, except with more quips and better tech.

VentureBeat has immediate openings for experienced reporters with a track record of getting scoops.

We’re looking for someone, either in San Francisco or New York, who loves covering the business of technology but isn’t infatuated with it. Someone with a critical eye, an ability to develop sources, and a track record of breaking news.

Ideally, you’ll have experience — and an interest in — covering health tech and health IT.

But most important, we want someone who is a reporter first and a tech reporter second: A journalist who’s eager to go out and get the stories that other people don’t have.

Do you like talking to people, meeting entrepreneurs, and interviewing product managers and chief information officers to find out the intricacies of their technologies? Are you driven to write fast, be first, and be the best? Then we want to hear from you.

VentureBeat offers the chance to work with a small team of writers who are committed to journalistic excellence, with lots of hands-on editing support and a great team atmosphere. We offer benefits including health care and stock options. And our offices are awesome.

If this sounds like the kind of job you’d be excited about, write to me and pitch me on why you’d be a great choice. Include links to no more than five clips that show your best tech-related news writing skills.

A résumé or LinkedIn profile is also helpful to give a sense of your background. Please put “tech reporter” in the subject line to ensure that it doesn’t get lost in my inbox.
