We’re Hiring at Xconomy San Francisco

10/14/10Follow @wroush

It’s time for Xconomy to expand its Bay Area coverage. We’ve been on the ground here since June, writing about innovation and entrepreneurship in all corners of the high-tech economy, including software and the Web, biotech and drug development, energy and cleantech, and angel and venture investing. Now we want to take it the next level—and we need a great journalist to help us do it.

We won’t mince words—our requirements are substantial. The ideal candidate will be able to dig up great story ideas, understand complex technology ideas and business models, handle interviews with high-powered entrepreneurs and investors, and write quickly. Experience with blogging and other forms of online communication and social media is a must, as is the stamina to produce breaking news stories and longer features and profiles on a daily basis.

Xconomy is a distributed organization but we work together closely, so we’re looking for someone who has both a great team attitude and the ability to work independently. A sense of humor helps. We cover a lot of fields with a small staff, so this is a great job for a journalist who has experience with a variety of beats and enjoys learning new ones.

Check out the detailed job listing at MediaBistro and in Xconomy’s own Jobs section, and if you think you fit the bill, write to us at jobs@xconomy.com. Tell us about yourself, your knowledge of the San Francisco and Silicon Valley innovation scene, and why you think you’d be a great fit with Xconomy—and don’t forget to include a resume and clips.
