The Wall Street Journal is looking “to produce much deeper and broader coverage of technology in all its manifestations” and is hiring additional tech reporters, says editor Gerard Baker. “While this initial wave of new reporting staff will be based in the US, [global technology editor] Jonathan [Krim] is tasked with coordinating the coverage of an increasingly global tech industry, working with reporters around the world.”

Technology is transforming the global economy at an ever-accelerating pace. Our readers are hungry for the best, fastest, most comprehensive coverage of technology anywhere in the world. If we are to continue to grow as a news organization, we must dominate coverage of this critical field – from breaking corporate news to analysis of the evolving tech space to insightful examination of the latest innovations.
So I am pleased to announce today a significant expansion in the size of our global team of technology reporters. In the next few months, under the leadership of Jonathan Krim, our new global technology editor, we will be augmenting our existing team of reporters in San Francisco. The aim is simple but crucial: to enable us to produce much deeper and broader coverage of technology in all its manifestations./CONTINUES
While this initial wave of new reporting staff will be based in the US, Jonathan is tasked with coordinating the coverage of an increasingly global tech industry, working with reporters around the world. Over time, I expect to add even more reporting and editing staff in this field.
Specific job postings will go up soon and I encourage anyone interested in being a part of this most dynamic area of our coverage to apply.
This is one of a number of initiatives that we will take in coming months to deepen our commitment in key, core areas of interest to our readers around the world. We have a tremendous opportunity to strengthen our leadership in global news. It is the responsibility of all of us to seize it.
