WSJ looking for tech blogger
by Chris Roush
Dennis Berman, the marketplace editor at The Wall Street Journal, sent out the following job to the staff on Thursday afternoon:
The Wall Street Journal is reinforcing its technology coverage, and is looking for an agile-minded, tech-obsessed journalist to be the lead blogger on Digits – the Journal’s premier technology blog. This New York-based journalist should have a well-honed writing voice, a sense of collaboration and rigor, and an appreciation of the technical and financial aspects of the global technology business.
We are not looking for a technology cheerleader, but rather a person who can fairly confront the myths, hypocrisies, and profligacy of today’s technology world. The job entails writing original material for the real-time Digits blog, while also building contributions from the Journal’s formidable tech staff around the world. The blogger will work closely with sister site AllThingsD.com as well as WSJ tech blogs in Europe and Asia.
This post is expected to be a high-profile one, demanding frequent appearances on WSJ’s online video and other television outlets. Social media skills and contacts are expected. Success will be measured in growing share of voice in the crowded online tech space, increased audiences and engagement. Please make a case as to why you are the best fit for this great role by writing to Raju.Narisetti@wsj.com and Dennis.Berman@wsj.com
