Technology Reporter

If you are a multimedia journalist who marvels at how technology is shaping the future and is fascinated by the decisions society has to make to capture the benefit of innovation while balancing the influence of corporate interests, malign hackers or states, major industry creation and disruption, app jobs and automation, you might be the next technology reporter at CalMatters.

This reporter will cover one of the biggest evolutions in human history from ground zero, California. This year, in America’s most entrepreneurial state and the home of Silicon Valley, voters will likely decide two major battles about privacy and job quality. Each will involve millions of dollars from leading technology companies and the outcomes will echo around the world. But there are many, many more decisions being made at the state level in California about how to encourage innovation and protect against its weaponization or harm to workers.

We are looking for a special reporter on this unique job. This reporter will have radio and print journalism skills because he or she will be writing stories and participating in broadcast media including a possible podcast. This reporter is more likely to be savvy about the tech industry and maybe new to the policy world — rather than the other way around. But the reporter will also work closely with legislators and staff, the governor’s office, Sacramento lobbyists and advocates.

Responsibilities include: 

  • Report and write longform and short stories and multimedia presentations about California technology issues with close attention to state policies and legislation, the lobby community and advocates. 
  • Think creatively about formats and tools for communicating technology issues to a broad, statewide audience.
  • Participate in radio shows, public events and live video.
  • Work with our data, visual and social media journalists to create the best presentations of technology stories.

These would be a plus:

  • There is a strong preference this reporter will be based in Sacramento
  • Experience at covering the technology industry or tech policy
  • An understanding of technology policy, especially in California

We are an expanding and collaborative newsroom, successfully forging a new model for sustainable, intelligent, nonprofit journalism. We’re committed to diversity and especially encourage members of underrepresented communities to apply. If you’re interested, please provide a resume, a cover letter that outlines how you would approach the job and links to at least six online samples of your work. Write to jobs@calmatters.org with the job title in the subject line.

Economy Reporter

If you are a journalist who always knows the latest unemployment rate and can explain what difference Wall Street makes to my life as a Californian, you might be the next economy reporter at CalMatters.

This is not a business reporter job, but this reporter knows what motivates business. This job is about helping people understand the business and economic trends that shape public policy, that influence the cost of living, that reveal the jobs being created and those that are going away. CalMatters explains the major state issues in California and all of it — education, environment, healthcare, transportation, justice — is shaped by the state’s business and economic trends. California is also a high-cost, high wage state. One of its central debates today is about maintaining those high wages and lowering those high costs.

There are many, many policy issues that shape California industry and its economy — the fifth largest in the world. California sits on the Pacific Rim, it is the nation’s largest agricultural state, it is home to Silicon Valley and Hollywood and its prosperity is seriously threatened by housing costs that make it hard to find employees, a higher education system that is turning away students and the common political complaint that regulation and taxation are driving businesses elsewhere. 

This is a rich beat with a variety of human, business and political stories.

Responsibilities include:

  • Report and write longform and short stories and multimedia presentations about California economic issues with close attention to state policies and legislation, the lobby community and advocates. 
  • Think creatively about formats and tools for communicating technology issues to a broad, statewide audience.
  • Participate in radio shows, public events and live video.
  • Work with our data, visual and social media journalists to create the best presentations of economy stories.

These would be a plus:

  • There is a strong preference this reporter will be based in Sacramento
  • Experience at covering the economy or business issues
  • An understanding of economic policy, especially in California

We are an expanding and collaborative newsroom, successfully forging a new model for sustainable, intelligent, nonprofit journalism. We’re committed to diversity and especially encourage members of underrepresented communities to apply. If you’re interested, please provide a resume, a cover letter that outlines how you would approach the job and links to at least six online samples of your work. Write to jobs@calmatters.org with the job title in the subject line.

Higher Education Reporter

If you’re a journalist who thinks college is the key to the future, the place where researchers invent life-changing new technologies, where the workforce of tomorrow is taking shape and where young people can gain the skills for a better life, you might be the next higher education reporter at CalMatters.

This is a significant time for America’s largest public university system. It is considering how to prepare students for a rapidly changing future and new ways to teach them. It is a time of wonder and exploration for scientific research. And it is a time when colleges remain an important bridge to address inequality. California’s private and public systems of higher education also face significant challenge as K12 schools struggle with an achievement gap, graduation rates are not keeping up and many consider the financial support inadequate.

We seek a reporter who’s excited about telling this story. Someone who will closely follow the high stakes discussions involving political and academic leaders as well as employers and students. This reporter will be engaged with key contacts in the Legislature and the governor’s administration. He or she will work closely with leaders of the state’s three public higher education systems and be savvy about the state’s private institutions

CalMatters recently expanded its attention on higher education issues, offering this reporter more resources for news gathering. In 2020, we are creating a College Journalism Network of student journalists at campuses across the state. The student journalists will write about major state issues and help report on issues that impact their campus.

Responsibilities include: 

  • Report and write longform and short stories and multimedia presentations about California higher education issues with close attention to state policies and legislation, academic leadership and student perspectives.
  • Think creatively about formats and tools for communicating health issues to a broad, statewide audience.
  • Participate in radio shows, public events and live video.
  • Work with our data, visual and social media journalists to create the best presentations of health stories.

These would be a plus:

  • There is a strong preference this reporter will be based in Sacramento
  • Fluent in Spanish
  • Experience at higher education coverage
  • An understanding of higher education policy, especially in California

We are an expanding and collaborative newsroom, successfully forging a new model for sustainable, intelligent, nonprofit journalism. We’re committed to diversity and especially encourage members of underrepresented communities to apply. If you’re interested, please provide a resume, a cover letter that outlines how you would approach the job and links to at least six online samples of your work.
