Are you smart, sarcastic, and know your cache levels from your cash flows? The Register is seeking a full-time journalist covering the semiconductor industry from our office in downtown San Francisco.
You will be expected to, on a daily basis, report on the world of computer processors, system-on-chips, and related technologies. Your mission is to scrutinize and analyze the likes of Intel, AMD, ARM, Qualcomm, Cavium, Samsung, Imagination, Google, Microsoft, Apple, and IBM.
You must be able to handle reporting assignments to deadlines, and show no hesitation in picking up the phone or meeting people face to face in Silicon Valley and elsewhere in the US to get the answers you need. You must be willing to build trusted contacts in the industry, and be confident enough to pitch your own article ideas. Your writing must be crystal clear and accurate. You must be able to work under pressure, and you will be trained on how to use our publishing system.
The Register is the world's original online technology tabloid, publishing on the web since 1998 and read by millions of technology professionals every month. Our motto is biting the hand that feeds IT: we are playfully sarcastic, and often irreverent, but above all we strive to be accurate, fair, and detailed. We are renowned for breaking exclusive stories, and writing insightful analysis for a global audience. We are part of Situation Publishing, an independent media business that has a global readership of 40 million people.
We offer a generous amount of vacation, a healthcare plan, and competitive pay. This position is available immediately. To apply, email Chris Williams, US Editor <email@example.com> and start the subject line with "Semiconductor journalist".
