Job Details

Job Description:

The Wall Street Journal is looking for an enterprising and ambitious reporter to cover the ways that new technology - from facial recognition and surveillance software to artificial intelligence and quantum computing - is affecting China's society, economy and politics and spilling beyond the country's borders to reshape the world. Technological advances are at the heart of trends reshaping the lives of China's 1.3 billion people. They are also fueling fears in Washington and other world capitals about the financial and security implications of China's tech push. It's a big story and we aim to have the most insightful coverage of all of it.

You should be knowledgeable about the technical side of newsworthy innovations and a savvy observer of important trends, with the perspective to help us put these developments in a broader geopolitical context. You would work with colleagues across Silicon Valley, Washington, Europe and elsewhere to explore the global ramifications of developments. You will be expected to lead the pack and regularly break news. You will also need to generate lots of ideas and be a team player. The ability to speak Mandarin is a huge plus. You should also be prepared to stretch beyond your beat to help the bureau cover the endless, unpredictable and fascinating developments in China.

You will report to the China deputy bureau chief for political and general news. While you will likely start the job working remotely, you will eventually be based in a relevant major Asian city like Hong Kong or Singapore.

You will:
  • Discover, comprehend and reveal important developments at the intersection of technology and society in China
  • Help our bureau cover the broader range of news coming out of this important country
  • Develop timely specialties in areas that may not strictly fit into your beat, but which emerge as urgent priorities or present fruitful coverage opportunities
  • Produce the full range of Journal coverage from breaking news to thoughtful front-page stories to lighter looks at the human condition

You have:
  • Fluent Mandarin
  • At least 2-3 years of experience
  • Comfort and experience with technology as a subject matter
  • Broad interest in China

To apply, please submit your resume, a cover letter explaining how you would approach the job and half a dozen clips.
