The Wall Street Journal is seeking a reporter to cover European Union regulation of competition, antitrust and technology.
The beat, based in Brussels, centers on the world’s most active regulator of business today. Recent big stories have included the EU’s $5 billion Google Android fine, its $3 billion Google shopping fine last year and its $15 billion tax bill for Apple in 2016. Other hot topics include the EU’s GDPR data-privacy law, now a household term in Silicon Valley.
Aside from tech, the beat covers deals such as the giant Bayer-Monsanto merger. The EU’s well-known antitrust commissioner, Margrethe Vestager, is a central figure.
The beat mixes spot news on high-profile, extremely competitive stories and extensive opportunities for enterprise reporting. Covering it is similar to an M&A beat, demanding constant networking and aggressive gossiping to break stories and understand industry nuances.
Candidates should have a track record of getting scoops, hustling on spot news and executing ambitious enterprise features.
