    Overview

    Our real estate/housing team covers the most critical, high-reader interest story in the region: the changing Bay Area housing and business landscape, and how it drives changes in our lives. We are looking for a self-starting journalist to join this team with a focus on the retail industry.

    Responsibilities

    Based in San Jose, this reporter should thrive in a fast-paced environment, with the energy to break news, the passion to dig deeper, and the ability to work both alone and collaboratively with a rotating cast of reporters and editors. We're interested in exploring the way the local real estate market drives trends in shopping, eating and drinking, and the way the retail industry itself is changing. 

    Qualifications

    • At least 3 years of daily journalism experience
    • Demonstrated ability to write sharp, clean copy, including headlines and nutgrafs that distill why a story needs to be read and shared online. 
    • Digital storytelling experience is a plus, and any candidate should have an intense curiosity for how news is consumed, shared, and searched for on the internet. 
    • Experience using social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) in reporting breaking news — and an eagerness to learn new tools to increase audience engagement and story impact. 
    • Comfortable working on digital deadlines in a 24/7 news cycle where speed and accuracy are critical.
