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: 

These would be a plus:

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 with the job title in the subject line.
