WIRED is where tomorrow is realized. It is the essential source of information and ideas that make sense of a world in constant transformation. The WIRED conversation illuminates how technology is changing every aspect of our lives—from culture to business, science to design. The breakthroughs and innovations that we uncover lead to new ways of thinking, new connections, and new industries. WIRED reaches more than 30 million people each month through WIRED.com, our digital edition, the magazine, social media, and live events.

Job Description

The largest technology companies exercise world-changing market power. WIRED seeks a writer to cover these companies, with a particular focus on Facebook, Amazon, Google and Apple.

This role spans both the business/economic and social impacts of these companies’ power, and your underlying question will always be how this power is changing the world, both for better and for worse. You’ll track these companies as they expand into new markets and business lines, exploring the potential of new products and economic opportunities they create, and reporting on the strategies they use to outmaneuver or quash competitors and influence regulators, politicians, and the public. You may also cover them through the stories of their smaller rivals, of companies that depend on their economic ecosystems—such as sellers on Amazon or app developers for Apple—or of regulators or activists who tussle with them. You may look at how they tackle issues like misinformation and political manipulation, how they use their platforms to try to promote positive change such as voter participation or public health, and how their founders or top executives use their wealth philanthropically. And you may look at their influence around the world, particularly how they wield it in smaller countries or those with authoritarian regimes.

You should have some experience of covering Big Tech, and be excited by the prospect of storytelling across a wide range of formats, from breaking news and sharp, timely analysis to deeply reported narrative features. (If you’ve never written one of those, don’t worry: WIRED has some of the finest longform editors in the business, and we love helping people who’ve got reporting chops and raw writing talent grow into gifted storytellers.) You may also have the opportunity to take part in our podcasts, video series, or live events. 

You’ll work with our experienced business editor, Scott Thurm, who will help you find avenues to focus on within this broad beat and develop lines of investigation that can yield scoops and original ideas. You’ll be part of a growing and increasingly global newsroom of smart, kind, nerdy, and well-informed colleagues who are always brimming with ideas and eager to help each other out. In particular, in this job you can expect to collaborate with folks such as Gilad Edelman, who covers tech policy and regulation; Cecilia D’Anastasio, our chief writer on the games industry, Tom Simonite, Will Knight, and Khari Johnson, our AI team; and Matt Burgess, who covers privacy and regulation in Europe.
