Full Time

The Wall Street Journal is looking for an experienced reporter to cover one of the most influential companies ever, Google parent Alphabet, as it faces perhaps the most challenging period in its history.

Google's impact on business and society is vast. Beyond its core search-and-advertising business, it is one of the world's biggest video distributors through YouTube, the largest smartphone-software supplier thanks to Android, a leader in developing self-driving-car technology through Waymo, and a top contender in the booming cloud-computing industry.

After years battling regulators in Europe, Google now is the subject of a lawsuit by the U.S. Department of Justice that marked the biggest tech antitrust action in decades.

It will need to navigate a shifting landscape in Washington where concern about Big Tech's power is one of the few constants. In short, it's an extremely compelling time to cover Google.

Candidates should have a track record of dominating a highly competitive beat, including delivering important scoops and agenda-setting enterprise stories. You should be eager to collaborate with colleagues and have a history of doing so. You will set yourself apart if you are facile with data and creative about storytelling in multiple forms.

The position is based in San Francisco and is part of our internet/social media team, led by Brad Reagan. If you're interested, please click 'APPLY' to contact Brad and Global Technology Editor Jason Dean.
