Ars Technica is looking for an experienced reporter—a true journalistic hustler who will work the (literal and metaphorical) phones to bring our readers fresh, hot news about the interaction between technology and society.
What do we mean by “technology and society”? We mean stories about the growing political and cultural “Big Tech backlash,” copyright clashes, the culture of Silicon Valley firms, tech-policy battles, and important tech-related court cases—not a review of the science in the latest sci-fi blockbuster.
We’re looking for someone “experienced to senior” (at least 3 years of quality reporting experience) who already knows what we mean by an “Ars story.”
Can you craft stories that will become “can’t miss” additions to a site reaching 15 million unique worldwide readers (and the crossword section)? Do you have serious writing skills, technical depth, and reporting chops? Would you call yourself—or do you want to become—a “subject-matter expert” in at least a few of the beats you regularly cover?
If so, we’d love to hear from you!
This is a full-time job, and pay is commensurate with experience. Candidates:
If that sounds like a good fit, you can apply here. We will begin reviewing applications in early April.
