Big Tech Reporting Fellow

Insider Inc

Insider is hiring a paid editorial fellow to write about the world’s largest tech companies and the people behind them. The fellow’s start date will be in January 2023.

The Big Tech team fellow would write about companies like Meta, Google, Amazon and Apple and their vast impacts on society and the workforce they employ. From social platforms like Meta, TikTok, and Snap’s efforts to gain more Gen Z users, to the competitive landscape for YouTube and Google, and Big Tech’s expansion to international markets, and beyond. There is flexibility for the fellow to follow their reporting interests in Big Tech. 

Our fellows tell the stories of the fast-evolving Big Tech industry and the people behind it in various ways, including profiles, news features, and slide shows. They work alongside expert reporters and editors as they research topics, develop story ideas, pitch them to editors, and write news briefs or longer articles. Fellows also have the opportunity to contribute to high-profile stories and collaborate across the newsroom.

We are accepting and reviewing applications on a rolling basis.

For the Big Tech team, we’re looking for someone with the following qualifications:

  • An interest in covering public big tech companies and their employees 
  • Curiosity about the way these technologies impact the real world
  • An ability to file at least three stories per week, across different topics
  • The initiative and drive to pitch and report original stories
  • Strong time management skills
  • An ability to cut through jargon, and a willingness to learn

The Insider Fellowship Program is for early career journalists who want to spend six months learning from a newsroom full of passionate, dedicated journalists. Fellows are assigned to teams and become experts in digital storytelling. They produce real work that is distributed to our audience of millions, and by the end of six months are prepared for the next phase of their journalism careers.

Please note: The paid fellowship requires that you work (preferably) full-time at 40 hours a week for six months. This fellowship has the opportunity to be fully remote or based out of one of our offices.
